The 2019 refresh will have faster wireless, faster 4G LTE, and new SureView Gen 3 and 1000-nit panel options. In comparison, most flagship Ultrabooks top out at only 400 to 600 nits for inferior outdoor visibility. HP is claiming it has the "world's only outdoor viewable display" for a 14-inch laptop.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
