HP is betting big on the Intel Skylake processors, so after bringing them to the Pavilion x360 convertibles, it’s also making the same move related to the Spectre X2 series. Those are Windows tablets of the convertible kind and a new big screen model seems to be coming.


This newcomer has a detachable keyboard, according to Notebook Italia and a fresh FCC filing also showed that the new Spectre x2 model will come with a 12.5 inch screen and 3 config options. One of them involves a Core M-6Y30 processor, 4 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD. Another involves a Core M-6Y54 processor and 8 GB of RAM, plus 256 GB SSD and the third a Core M-6Y75 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB SSD as well.

All these 3 options bring WiFi 802.11ac support and the tablet is expected to weigh around 2.6 pounds. The Spectre x2 is thus expected to be lighter than the predecessor, that measured 4.4 pounds in weight. However, that was probably due to the fact it had a larger body and a 13.3 inch diagonal. A fanless design is also in the picture here and since the predecessor retailed for $1,100, a similar price range is also expected.
