Allen Ngo,

We're already quite familiar with the 13.3-inch Spectre x360, so why not go bigger? The upcoming 15.6-inch HP Spectre x360 brings everything we love about the 13-inch model and throws in 4K (3820 x 2160) resolution and USB Type-C just for good measure.

Other core specifications for the first two SKUs include:

  • Intel Core i5-6200U or Core i7-6500U processor
  • 8/16 GB LPDDR3 RAM
  • 15.6-inch FHD or UHD IPS WLED edge-to-edge glass display
  • Intel HD Graphics 520 or Iris Graphics
  • 256 GB SSD
  • 4.02 pounds
  • 0.63 x 14.8 x 9.75 inches
  • 13 hours of battery life

Aside from the aforementioned USB Type-C gen 1. port, users get mDP, HDMI, 3.5 mm audio back, and three other full-size USB 3.0 ports.

The build quality and aesthetic of the Spectre x360 has always been a high point and the latest 15.6-inch model looks to be a literal translation from the smaller 13-inch version. Indeed, the quality of the unit on display is rigid and without any noticeable concerns, but its sharp edges and heavier weight both make the device a bit tough to use in tablet mode. HP tells us that the notebook will be aiming for 72 percent NTSC color coverage.

The 15.6-inch Spectre x360 launches this February 14th starting at $1149. The existing Spectre x360 will also receive an OLED option by upcoming Spring.

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.
