HP Envy x360 13 upgraded to Intel Alder Lake processors with an optional 2.8K OLED display
HP has announced a new version of the Envy x360 13, a 13.3-inch convertible laptop that now supports Intel Alder Lake processors. Specifically, the Envy x360 13 comes with the Core i5-1230U or the Core i7-1250U, both 10-core processors with 12 threads. Additionally, the laptop does not feature any dedicated GPU options, leaving Intel's built-in Iris Xe Graphics to handle all GPU-related tasks.
Moreover, HP states that the Envy x360 13 will be configurable with up to 16 GB of LPDDR4x-4266 RAM and a 1 TB PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD. Incidentally, all models rely on a 66.5 Wh battery that the Envy x360 13 can recharge at up to 65 W. For reference, the bundled 65 W charger can recharge the laptop to 50% within 45 minutes.
Separately, HP offers the Envy x360 13 with three display options, all with built-in touchscreens. According to HP, the entry-level IPS display outputs at 1,920 x 1,200 pixels and peaks at 400 nits with 100% sRGB colour space coverage. Also, there is a 2,560 x 1,600 IPS option that has the same maximum brightness and colour space coverage. Finally, there is a 2.8K OLED option (2,880 x 1,800) that offers 100% DCI-P3 colour space coverage with 500 nits of peak brightness when viewing HDR content, which drops to 400 nits in SDR.
HP will begin offering the new Envy x360 13 from today in the US, where it starts at US$849.99. HP adds that the laptop will also be orderable from Best Buy and select Best Buy retail locations. Availability and pricing for other markets remain unknown at this stage, though. As HP's marketing images show, the Envy x360 13 features the following ports:
- 1x 3.5 mm headphone/microphone combo jack
- 1x microSD media card reader
- 2x ThunderboltT 4 (USB Power Delivery, DisplayPort 1.4, 40 Gbps signalling rate)
- 2x USB Type-A (10 Gbps signalling rate)
