HP has unveiled the Spectre Fold, a revolutionary foldable PC, entering the realm of other tech giants like ASUS and Lenovo. Distinguished as the slimmest and most compact 17-inch foldable PC, it promises to deliver a combined experience of a tablet and a PC.
The versatile 3-in-1 Spectre Fold comes with a detachable keyboard, allowing users to transition between a standard 12.3-inch laptop by halving the 17-inch screen or utilizing it as a standalone tablet or desktop, thanks to its built-in kickstand. Remarkably lightweight, it weighs only 1.35 kgs. When fully expanded, its dimensions are 277.05 x 376.1 x 8.5 mm, which changes to 277.05 x 191.31 x 21.4 mm once folded.
The centerpiece of the Spectre Fold is its 17-inch OLED touch display that's also stylus-compatible. It boasts a resolution of 1,920 x 2,560 pixels, complemented by IMAX Enhanced certification, a peak brightness of 500 nits, HDR10 support, and an impressive 99 percent DCI-P3 color coverage.

Audio enthusiasts would appreciate the quad-speaker setup, enhanced by Bang and Olufsen. A 5MP HP True Vision Infrared camera is integrated, which benefits from temporal noise reduction. For added privacy, the device includes a dedicated mic mute button and a camera privacy switch.
Driving the performance is the 12th generation Intel Core i7 processor, which can reach speeds up to 4.7GHz. Accompanying it is the Intel Iris Xe integrated GPU. It comes with a hefty 16GB LPDDR5x RAM and a spacious 1TB SSD for storage. A robust six-cell 94.3Wh battery powers the laptop, with the convenience of 100W charging through a USB-C port. Running on Windows 11 OS, its connectivity suite includes four USB-C ports, DisplayPort 1.4, WiFi-6, and Bluetooth 5.3.
For those interested, the Spectre Fold is priced at $4,999 and includes a full-sized detachable keyboard, the HP Envy USB-C hub, and the HP Wireless Rechargeable MPP2.0 Pen. It's currently available for pre-orders on HP's official website.
