Less than a day after the official images surfaced online, the new Spectre x2 convertible is official. Just as rumored, it features a 12.3-inch display, two Kaby Lake processor options, and Intel Iris Plus graphics. It will hit the market next month starting at $999.99 USD.

HP Spectre x2 has just received a major hardware update and is expected to become available for purchase next month. Unveiled at this year's Cannes Film Festival, this premium Windows convertible "boldly redefines the PC experience with optimized angles for inking, an impressive 6M pixel display, and the cutting-edge specs you need to revolutionize your workflow."

HP's press release highlights the 12.3-inch 3K2K display with 3,000X2,000 pixels with support for the Windows Ink Certified pen that comes with the convertible. The chassis uses CNC-machined aluminum, while the U-shaped stainless steel kickstand allows the Spectre x2 to be used flat and up to 165 degrees. The new Spectre x2 comes with 5 MP and 13 MP cameras, as well as an IR camera for Windows Hello biometric authentication. HP promises up to 8 hours of autonomy and, thanks to HP Fast Charge, only 30 minutes are needed to go from 0% to 50% battery life.

HP Spectre x2 is scheduled to hit HP.com next month, starting at $999.99 USD. Its hardware options include the latest Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, up to 16 GB RAM, up to 1 TB SSD storage, Bang & Olufsen audio, as well as Intel Iris Plus graphics. We will get back to it as soon as it goes on sale, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
