Best Jumia Tech Week Deals

The Spectre x2 (2017) is seemingly HP’s answer to the latest Surface Pro, although it was unveiled earlier. The HP Spectre x2 (2017) offers a more affordable alternative to the Microsoft device (considering inclusion of a keyboard) while also still providing great features, including an higher resolution display, 7th-gen Intel Core processors and fast SSD storage.

HP Spectre x2 (2017) Key Features and Specs

  • 7th Gen Intel Core i7, Core i5 Processor
  • Intel HD Graphics 620, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640
  • Windows 10
  • 12.3-inch IPS Display, 3000 x 2000 (293 ppi)
  • up to 16GB RAM
  • up to 1TB SDD
  • Windows Hello Face Sign in
  • Up to 8 hours Battery Life

Design and Display

This beautiful 2-in-1 flaunts a design that will rival the Surface Pro to a significant extent. The body rocks an ash silver finish while the kickstand sports copper-coloured stainless steel. And talking about the kickstand, we don’t know if either HP or Microsoft tried to copy the other. This is because you can flip the HP Spectre x2 (2017) up to 165 degrees like the new Surface device.

The new keyboard features an all-metal deck and a base made of a tough, rubbery plastic. At 1.5 mm, it offers better key travel than the optional Type Cover for the Surface Pro. The HP Spectre x2 detachable comes with similar 12.3-inch, 10 point multi-touch display.

Based on IPS technology, the Gorilla Glass 4-protected touchscreen boasts an improved resolution of 3,000 x 2,000 pixels. This means the new HP Spectre x2 promises even better images than the already awesome Surface Pro.

Power and Performance

HP now powers its popular 2-in-1 with latest generation Intel (Kaby Lake) processors. Buyers can choose between Core i5 and Core i7 units.

In terms of graphics solutions and RAM, the HP Spectre x2 (2017) is practically the same as the Surface Pro. You get up to 16 GB of DDR3 RAM and Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 (on the Core i7 model). However, battery life is just about eight hours. HP Spectre x2 (2017) does offer fast charge technology that gives you 50 percent charge in half an hour, though.

Other Specs and Features

Just like the Microsoft device, the HP Spectre x2 (2017) offers up to 1TB solid state drives for storage. It also boots Windows 10 OS with Windows Hello face authentication support. Interestingly, the 2-in-1 gives you not one, but two USB Type-C ports.

HP Spectre x2 (2017) also offers buyers a dongle for USB Type-C to USB Type-A port conversion. You get front-facing speakers tuned by Bang & Olufsen for decent audio.

Pricing and availability

The HP Spectre x2 (2017) will start shipping in June, 2017 at a price of $999 for the model with Intel Core i7, 360GB SDD, and 8GB RAM. We do not have official price or availability for Nigeria, Ghana, and Kenya for now. When available, you should be able to buy the 2-in-1 at leading online stores in the countries. HP Spectre x2 (2017) Price in Nigeria is expected to range from 295,000 Naira to 1,050,000 Naira depending on the model.
