The new Spectre X2 Windows convertible is expected to feature a 12.5-inch touchscreen and a Core M Skylake-Y processor.

HP Spectre X2 convertibles have been around for a few years now, and this family already received a few hardware updates. Recently, we heard rumors about updated and new Spectre portables that HP could unveil next week at the IFA trade show in Berlin. Now, the time has come for the new HP Spectre X2, with a smaller display and a few brand-new Skylake processors under the hood.

Notebook Italia spotted the new Spectre X2 models listed at the FCC, but also on a website that lists three new hardware configurations and the prices for the Australian market:

  • HP Spectre X2 12-a002TU - Core M-6Y54 processor, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, $1,934 AUD
  • HP Spectre X2 12-a003TU - Core M-6Y75 processor, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, $2,299 AUD
  • HP Spectre X2 12-a005TU - Core M-6Y30 processor, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD, $2,016 AUD

All these new HP Spectre X2 convertibles feature a 12.5-inch WUXGA touchscreen, have a slim silver frame, and they weigh around 2.65 pounds. We should see them next week at IFA, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
