HP has taken wraps of the Envy x2, a detachable notebook powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. The Envy x2 sports a premium finish and comes with the promise of Gigabit LTE and 20 hours of battery life.

HP unveiled the Envy x2 powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit in Hawaii today. The Envy x2 comes with always-on LTE connectivity made possible by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 LTE modem along with the promise of a 20 hour long battery life.

The Envy x2 comes in a detachable form factor with a machined aluminum finish and is just 6.9 mm thick. It weighs just 1.5 pounds and comes with a rear camera that supplements the 3D capabilities in the latest Windows 10 update.

Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager, consumer personal systems, HP Inc, said,

Mobile intensive customers want a versatile device that keeps up with their busy lives and lets them be connected to everything that matters when they need to. The HP ENVY x2 is designed to go everywhere with an incredibly thin and durable design built to be always connected with ultra-fast 4G LTE and Wi-Fi.”

The HP Envy x2 will be available in Spring 2018. Although details of pricing and SKUs are not yet known, we have reported earlier that the upcoming HP ARM-based notebook could come in 4 GB RAM/128 GB storage and 8 GB RAM/256 GB storage variants.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
