Earlier today, HP Malaysia showcased its Spectre Folio convertible notebook during its HP Home 2018 event. The notebook sports a unique build and design, made using a combination of leather and alloy comprised of aluminium and magnesium.
One feature of the Folio that stands out is its convertible 13.3-inch display. Specifically, it can switch between being used in a typical notebook fashion; a tent mode in which users can bring the screen forward and over the keyboard; and a tablet mode that essentially gives users a chance to get creative.
On that note, the Folio also comes with a HP Digital Pen, which features 4096 level of sensitivity. Specs-wise, the notebook can be fitted with up to an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8500Y CPU, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and up to a 2TB SSD. The Folio ships out with a Full HD display as a default configuration, but HP did say that there is an 4K display option.
Additionally, the Folio can also boast a pretty impressive battery life. On a single charge, HP says that it will give up to 18 hours of continuous use.
We reached out to HP Malaysia, asking when the Spectre Folio would be available in the country, and how much the starting retail price would be. Unfortunately, we were that it still didn’t have a definitive launch period for the device. However, we were told that the Folio will be making its way down to our neighbour, Singapore, as early as January 2019, and it will retail from a starting SRP of SGD2399 (~RM7234).
