HP Spectre x360 15 AMOLED – Hands On at CES 2019

OLED is finally coming to laptops. Well, some at least. There’s been a lot of talk about the advanced display tech at CES 2019, but only one laptop actually had it available to try out. The 15-inch HP Spectre x360. The 2-in-1 is a great choice to be one of the first devices of 2019 to implement OLED. It’s already a fast, capable workhorse — and now it has a display to match. While that should be plenty of power for the average person, it should be noted you’re going to get more power in the non-OLED version of the device, which features the six-core processor and a more capable GTX 1050 Ti. In terms of raw power, that’s the better option. The same goes for other 15-inch options like the Dell XPS 15 or MacBook Pro. We had a couple of issues that held back last year’s model, which included AMD Vega graphics onboard. The biggest, though, was the battery life. The combination of those graphics and the 4K screen left it without enough juice. We’re concerned that an OLED screen might make that situation even worse, though we’ll have to test it ourselves to know for sure. We don’t have a price on the OLED Spectre x360, but don’t be surprised if that extra display tech comes with an extra fee. Until we start seeing more widespread support of OLED, it will remain an expensive, niche option on laptops. That doesn’t mean it isn’t beautiful, though, and it’s hard not to excited by the preview of that future the Spectre x360 offers. As we said, the price is currently unannounced, but HP says the system will arrive in March of 2019.
