The Rockchip-powered notebook with HP EliteBook branding was spotted at the Hong Kong Global Sources Fair this week, For now, it runs Remix OS and has 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage, but these might change until its launch, especially the operating system.

HP currently focuses on the Windows platform, although they also have a few Chromebooks on the market as well. However, it looks like a first Remix OS-driven notebook might soon hit the market. Even more, this portable was apparently spotted in Hong Kong and is powered by a Rockchip processor.

Notebook Italia spotted the pre-production version of the HP EliteBook-branded notebook with Remix OS on board earlier this week, during the Hong Kong Global Sources Fair trade show. Its highlights include a full HD 12.5-inch display, the hexa-core Rockchip RK3399 processor with Mali-T864 graphics, 4 GB RAM, and 64 GB internal storage. 

This portable has not been confirmed by HP yet, but it looks like an EliteBook and a Rockchip representative also calls it this way in the video below, so we only need to wait for its official unveil now. According to Rockchip, this notebook is scheduled to hit the market soon carrying "a big brand's name on it."

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.
