Vibrant colors

HP Spectre x360 OLED laptop

HP is introducing its new Spectre x360 15-inch laptop with an optional OLED display at CES 2019, in Las Vegas. Although this isn’t the first time that the computer manufacturer makes a device with this panel technology, it’s the first time available on a 15-inch device and with HDR support.

What’s the difference between LCD and OLED? Unlike LCDs, OLED displays usually offer more vibrant colors, and because it’s possible to turn off each pixel individually, it allows to produce true blacks.

The Spectre x360 features an Intel eighth-generation Core i7 processor with 16GB of memory, 512GB of SSD storage, and Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics, which should be enough to play most games.

While HP is expected to start shipping the Spectre x360 OLED laptop in March, the company isn’t sharing any information on pricing (which due to the OLED display, we can assume it won’t be cheap), or battery life.
