CES 2018: HP Shows off Flexible New Spectre x360 15, ENVY x2 and Sprout 3D Camera

Out of HP's CES lineup, three new computers in particular have caught our eye: the newest version of the Spectre x360 15, the HP ENVY x2 laptops and the Sprout 3D Camera.

Let's take a quick look at these individually:

HP Spectre x360 15


Coming to shelves March 2018, the HP Spectre x360 15 laptop looks to be a powerful option for creative enthusiasts and professionals. HP promises that with the latest model, prosumers can “effortlessly produce, simulate, edit huge 3D photo and video renders, edit 4K video, create network designs, develop apps, stream movies, and play games without slowing down.”

“This PC can handle intensive tasks, features impressive performance and cutting-edge discrete graphics capabilities with eighth generation Intel Core quad core processor and a choice of Radeon RX Vega or NVIDIA GeForce MX 150 graphics options,” says HP.

It’s set to ship with Intel’s multi-chip SOC Imagination and to feature a Corning Gorilla Glass 4K UHD 15.6-inch diagonal touch display. It’s battery is also said to last up to 13.5 hours and can charge up to 50 percent within 30 minutes with Hp Fast Charge tech.



HP’s ENVY x2 is a 7.9mm, 1.65 lbs, fanless touch laptop that HP says “enables productivity and entertainment on the go.” It’s packed with a Intel 7th generation Intel Core processor and supports 4G LTE.

It’s as well said to be designed with a soft keyboard (that’s also backlit), a magnetic stand, and Corning Gorilla Glass 4K display. And its battery is reported to last up to 15 hours, useful for those on the go, and it can charge up to 90 percent within 90 minutes.

It will be hitting stores Spring 2018.

HP Sprout 3D Camera


The Sprout 3D Camera is a down-facing camera that attaches to your display and works to capture and digitize 3D objects, 2D documents and even live video.

“The Sprout 3D Camera’s unique design minimizes desktop space for real-time capture and visualization. It creates life-like digital images by rotating any object in your hands or positioning under the camera – SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) tracking and scanning technology constructs the 3D model in real time. Workflows are enhanced by scanning objects with computer-graphics-friendly resolutions that maintain separate texture maps for physically-based rendering (PBR) and Virtual Reality (VR) applications,” says HP.

You should expect to see the Sprout 3D camera in Spring 2018.

HP also unveiled OMEN Game Stream, that HP says acts like a game server that can connect an OMEN PC to any other PC over the internet, ultimately meaning that lower-end PCs can tap into OMEN power as well.

You can expect to see the Spectre x360 15, ENVY x2 and Sprout 3D Camera at CES 2018.
