The CPU update will bring Intel Evo to HP's mid-range Envy 13 family of subnotebooks. Physical features of the chassis will otherwise be identical to the 2019 Ice Lake Envy 13 family.
Allen Ngo,

Much like the recent HP Spectre refresh, the 10th gen Ice Lake Envy 13 family will soon be available with 11th gen Tiger Lake options up to the Core i7-1165G7. The new processors will elevate both the Envy x360 13 convertible and Envy 13 clamshell to the Intel Evo platform meaning that they will follow certain design specifications related to faster wake times, charging rates, and longer battery life. Their Thunderbolt 3 ports will also be updated to Thunderbolt 4 as per the Intel Evo guideline.

Other than the new CPU update, external design and features remain the same as it was in the previous year. We therefore recommend checking out our reviews on the 10th gen Ice Lake Envy x360 13 and Envy 13 systems to learn more about their respective hardware since most of our comments will carry over to the new 11th gen Tiger Lake Envy 13 SKUs.

As for the larger 15.6-inch Envy 15 family which rely on Core-H CPUs instead of Core-U, HP has nothing to announce at the moment. HP only recently refreshed its 2020 Envy 15 laptop just a few months ago to tackle the Apple MacBook Pro 15.

Expect both the Envy 13 and Envy x360 13 to launch this month on Best Buy starting at $900 and $950 USD, respectively. HP.com will begin selling additional SKUs starting in November.

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.
