As for the GPU, the i5 version comes with an Intel Arc A370M while the i7 model can be fitted with either the Arc mobile GPU or an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 for the top-tier variant.
HP places a lot of emphasis on the Envy 16’s webcam, which is a 5MP camera with an infrared sensor and a privacy shutter that comes with an arsenal of features for video conferencing. It has built-in software for noise reduction, auto-framing, a beauty filter, and a ring light. It is also equipped with speakers made in collaboration with Bang & Olufsen.
The brand claims that the Envy 16 can last up to 16 and a half hours with video playback.

Connectivity-wise, the laptop supports the latest Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2.
