Last year HP launched its leather-wrapped Folio PC with the Intel Y-series processor and this year HP opted to replace it with an ARM-based Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G.
The HP Elite Folio features a design much like the Surface Book 4 concept design we covered last year that features a design much like a Surface Pro X atop a laptop keyboard.
It features a Surface Pro X-like stylus cradle right above the keyboard.
It features practical advancements for things like conference calls from home with a world-facing second mic that filters out noise and 4 speakers for high quality sound and the all-important HP Privacy Camera. 5G connectivity is optional and Wi-Fi 6 comes standard.
Price and availability are not known yet. Its competition on the market like Surface Pro X start at $899 without a keyboard and pen, so HP’s alternative offers more value and 5G availability.
