The low-priced HP Envy x360 13.3 convertible also gets a hardware refresh. The manufacturer relies on a 13.3-inch 16:10 display that is optionally available as an OLED screen. Current Intel Alder Lake U processors do their job under the hood.
HP Envy x360 13.3: Compact and powerful
In addition to the new Spectre model, HP has also introduced a cheaper 2-in-1 convertible. The HP Envy x360 13.3 is based on the design of its big brother, but relies on a 16:10 format display (instead of the 3:2 display in the Spectre). According to the manufacturer, the screen-to-body ratio is 86.5%. It weighs 1.36 kg and is very slim at 16 mm.
There are three display variants to choose from in this case as well. In the basic configuration, the new Envy has an IPS panel with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. In addition, there is another IPS display with 2,560 x 1,600 pixels or an OLED panel with particularly strong contrasts and a resolution of 2,800 x 1,600 pixels.
All three models are available as touchscreens and can be operated via stylus. They share a maximum brightness of 400 nits, whereby the OLED panel gets even brighter with 500 nits for HDR content. In addition, the top model fully covers the DCI-P3 color space.
Alder Lake U ensures longer runtime
For the CPUs, HP relies on Intel Alder Lake-U, more precisely either the Intel Core i5-1230U or the Core i7-1250U. Although they are below the Intel Alder Lake-P chips in terms of performance, they offer a longer battery life in return.
The 66.5 Wh battery is supposed to last up to 20.5 hours in video rendering. In mixed mode, it still reaches 17.5 hours. In addition, there is a maximum of 16 GB LPDDR4x RAM with a clock rate of 4,266 MHz and a maximum of a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD.
The equipment is completed by two webcams, a 5 MP camera and a second infrared cam for logging in via Windows Hello. The HP Envy x360 13.3 has two USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 4, two USB-A ports (10 Gbit/s), a microSD card reader and a 3.5 mm jack. The convertible communicates wirelessly via Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2.
Price and Availability
The HP Envy x360 13.3 is available now in the US in silver and dark blue color schemes at a price of $849.99, which is the equivalent of about 805 euros. When and at what price the device will come to Germany is currently still unclear.
