As a convertible PC, the device adapts the way people commute between work and life using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon computing platforms to offer optional 5G connectivity and up to 24.5 hours of video playback.
HP Elite Folio combines what people love about phones, tablets and personal computers in one device.
The webcam features a 76-degree field of view, dual microphone, and high-fidelity speakers with sound from Bang & Olufsen.
The 13.5-inch screen features the optional HP Sure View Reflective privacy panel, with a HD webcam that comes with an integrated privacy shutter for improved security.
The computer adapts to any working environment through 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 the Specter Folio for 2019, the Elite Folio features a design that allows you to swipe the screen forward in order to base it on the keyboard and trackpad for media consumption or touch work first, or it can be placed flat on top of the bottom case for tablet style use.
Elite Folio has a 13.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1280 pixels with an aspect ratio of 3: 2, which is an upgrade compared to the Specter Folio that featured the 16: 9 aspect ratio.
HP has taken advantage of some extra height by including the stylus above the keyboard, and while the Specter Folio featured leatherette, the Elite Folio now uses vegan leather, which means it’s not leather.
The computer works with the new Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 processor from Qualcomm, and there is also LTE and 5G connectivity through the Snapdragon X20 modem and Snapdragon X55.
The 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 headphone port, HP claims that battery life is up to 24.5 hours when watching locally stored videos, and the HP Elite Folio is expected to be available in February.
