The 1000-nit matte touchscreen will be significantly brighter than any consumer laptop or convertible in the market. In comparison, most Ultrabooks available today top out at just 300 nits or 400 nits for relatively poor outdoor visibility.

HP EliteBook laptops have always had some the brightest displays in the market. The EliteBook x360 1020 G2, for example, has an optional 700-nit display compared to "just" ~550 nits on the MacBook Pro 15 or Samsung Notebook 9 NP900X5T. HP will be doubling down on this advantage with the upcoming 13.3-inch EliteBook x360 830 G5.

Claimed to be the "brightest business convertible", the EliteBook x360 830 G5 will come with an optional 1000-nit FHD touchscreen for superior outdoor visibility. Anyone who has attempted to use a laptop under direct sunlight will know how uncomfortable it can be on the eyes, but the super-bright display should mitigate washed out colors and make text-reading easier.

Users uninterested in the 1000-nit option can still opt for the base 400-nit option. At this level, display brightness will be comparable to the XPS 13 while still outperforming the 300-nit display on HP's own Spectre x360 13.

To compound the brightness advantage even further, the touchscreen will be anti-glare matte unlike the glossy touchscreens on most other convertible laptops. Glare will be reduced significantly as a result.

Outside of the display, the keyboard keys will offer 1.5 mm of travel and 4G LTE options (Intel XMM 7560) will be made available. The usual suite of HP security features like Sure Start G4, Sure Click, and Sure View will all be present.

Expect the EliteBook x360 830 G5 to come to market by Q2 2019 with an active stylus pen included at no additional cost. Until then, check out the specifications below and our existing review on the classic EliteBook 830 G5.

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.
