HP EliteBook x360 1030 G4 and EliteBook x360 1040 G6 will have "world's only" 1000-nit displays
HP will be updating last year's 13.3-inch EliteBook x360 1030 G3 and 14-inch EliteBook x360 1040 G5 to the new EliteBook x360 1030 G4 and EliteBook 360 1040 G6, respectively. The announcement comes during the week of Computex 2019 where OEMs and chipmakers left and right are expected to unveil their latest products and services.
What new features will the G4 and G6 refresh bring to the table? As one might have probably guessed, the new versions will have Whiskey Lake-U Core i7-8665U CPU options with vPro to replace last year's Kaby Lake-R Core i5-8250U and i7-8550U. WLAN and Bluetooth will be updated to Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 from Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2, respectively, while the optional Gigabit 4G LTE CAT16 module will now use a broader 4x4 antenna for the promise of 122 percent faster theoretical speeds over CAT9.
Beyond the above internal changes, however, the x360 1030 G4 and x360 1040 G6 will both carry the same chassis designs as their immediate predecessors. Thus, we recommend checking out our existing reviews on the EliteBook x360 1030 G3 and EliteBook x360 1040 G5 for more information on the chassis and their features.
The EliteBook x360 1030 G4 and EliteBook x360 1040 G6 will launch simultaneously this July for a starting price of $1400 to $1500 USD each.
