It has been some time since we've seen an upgrade to HP's Surface Pro clone, the Elite x2. Today, HP is announcing the Elite x2 G8 —  a Tiger Lake-powered tablet with a 13-inch display that starts at just 1.17 kg.

The Elite x2 G8 offers a choice of Intel 11th gen Tiger Lake Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processor options. Buyers can configure the Elite x2 G8 with 8 or 16 GB of RAM, which is understandably non-upgradeable considering the form factor. SSD choices range from 128 GB to 2 TB NVMe drives, and they can be had in both self-encrypting and Intel Optane options. 

HP offers three 13-inch touch display options with the Elite x2 G8 — 1,920 x 1,280 at 400 nits, 3,000 x 2,000 at 450 nits, and 1,920 x 1,280 at 1,000 nits with HP Sure View Gen 3 privacy. Buyers can also opt for the HP Rechargeable Active Pen G3 for directly writing on the screen.

The Elite x2 G8 offers Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth connectivity along with optional LTE and GPS. The WLAN module also comes with an integrated Tile, which is essentially a Bluetooth tracker that enables locating the device when lost (as long as there's battery power). The Tile app can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store, Google Play Store, and the Apple App Store.

HP said that the Elite x2 G8 is ready for a great audio experience thanks to HP Sound Calibration and AI-based noise suppression. Peripheral connectivity needs are taken care of by the two Thunderbolt 4 ports, one USB 3.1 Type-C port, and a nano-SIM slot. A 47 WHr battery keeps things humming and can be recharged to about 50% in 30 minutes.

The HP Elite x2 G8 will be made available in April. Pricing information will be revealed closer to availability.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
