Cherry Trail seems to be the key words for this year’s Computex, taking place in Taipei. We’ve already seen a few tablet makers announcing devices based on the latest Intel CPUs and now here comes HP, updating one of its Pavilion 2 in 1 models with the new chip.


The HP Pavilion x2 10 is a Windows tablet that has a detachable keyboard and an Intel Bay Trail processor. Now the new generation model gets some design tweaks and also gets bumped up to Cherry Trail. A prototype was handled by Mobile Geeks in the video below, at the company’s Computex booth. The slate looks like the model from last year, but with an improved keyboard.

Instead of the keyboard case, the newcomer adopts a keyboard dock with a solid base. A magnetic docking mechanism snaps the two together. It’s important to mention that the keyboard is slim and it has no ports. The entire machine weighs about 1.8 pounds, keyboard included. Inside we find the Intel Atom x7 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, as well as a battery that provides 12 hours of life.

Other specs include a USB 3.0 port, USB Type C port, micro HDMI, stereo speakers, dual mics and a microSD card slot.
