HP announces Elite Folio with Snapdragon processor



HP has announced the Elite Folio, a new convertible laptop with arm-architecture central processing unit.

As a convertible computer, the device adapts to the way people move between work and life using Qualcomm Snapdragon computing platforms to deliver an optional 5G connection and up to 24.5 hours of video playback.

HP Elite Folio combines what people love in phones, tablets and personal computers in one device.

The webcam features a 76-degree field of view, with a dual microphone, and high-resolution speakers with Bang & Olufsen sound.

The 13.5-inch display features the optional HP Sure View Reflect privacy panel, with a high-resolution webcam that comes with a built-in privacy shutter to improve security.

Adapts to any working environment with its fan-free design and quiet keyboard, the device also includes an HP Elite Slim Active pen with built-in charging and storage base for quick access.

Like Specter Folio for 2019, Elite Folio features a design that lets you drag the screen forward for keyboard and trackpad for media consumption or touch first, or can be flat-mounted at the top of the bottom cover for tablet-style use.

Elite Folio has a 13.5-inch, 1920×1280 p1280 pixel display with a 3:2 display ratio, an upgrade compared to the Specter Folio display, which has a 16:9 display ratio.

HP has benefited from some extra height by incorporating the pen over the keyboard, and while Specter Folio is skin-based, Elite Folio now uses vegan skin, meaning it's not skin.

The computer is powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 processor, and there's also an LTE and 5G connection through the Snapdragon X20 and Snapdragon X55 modems.

Elite Folio can be configured with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage space.

There are two USB-C 3.2 ports and a headset port, and HP claims to have a battery life of up to 24.5 hours when watching locally stored videos, and the HP Elite Folio is expected to be available in February.
