HP Inc has unveiled the HP Spectre Folio, a stunning new device that sets a bold standard for premium PC innovation.
HP set out to reinvent every aspect of the PC, from the materials used to build it to the experiences it can deliver. The result is a transformative form factor designed for true mobility and equipped to easily adapt to everyday use cases. The world’s first leather convertible PC, the Spectre Folio blends timeless craftsmanship with the latest technology to create a product unlike any other.
The Spectre Folio builds on the success of traditional laptops, 2-in-1 devices and convertibles, which are designed primarily for specific productivity tasks or scenarios. The result is unprecedented versatility in a PC that seamlessly converts between three distinct positions.
To create the Spectre Folio, HP embraced the art of “manucrafturing,” where meticulously designed hardware meets handcrafted materials. The 100 percent chromed tan, full-grain leather from which the device is made plays an important functional role.
It is a durable material that provides a natural hinge and flexible chassis to enable a breakthrough new form factor. At the same time, its timeless aesthetic appeal, with accented stitching and precision edging, creates a sophisticated, luxurious quality often associated with fashion but has never been seen in a PC. The Spectre Folio will be available in two colours: Cognac Brown and Bordeaux Burgundy.
Other features include up to 16 GB of memory, up to 2 TB of SSD storage, and either a 300-nits FHD display or a low-power, 1W 400-nits FHD option for ideal viewing in any lighting condition. A 4K UHD display panel option will be available later this year.
