HP has debuted another convertible Chromebook named Chromebook x2 11 in the market. It is packed with high-end specifications and features including optional 4G LTE connectivity as it is aimed at the premium segment. It is also one of the few Chromebooks powered by a Qualcomm chipset instead of the traditionally used Intel CPUs.
The Chromebook x2 11 sports an 11-inch IPS display with 2160 x 1440 pixels resolution. The panel offers a 3:2 aspect ratio, Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, and also has touchscreen input support. Under the hood, it has a 2.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c processor with Adreno 618 GPU.
There are various configurations featuring up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB onboard storage. The LTE version is available in two of them: 4GB/64GB and 8GB/128GB. The WiFi-only model has a single configuration option of 8GB RAM with 64GB storage space.
There is an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel wide-angle front camera on the convertible. It comes packed with a 2-cell 32Wh battery claimed to last for a little over 11 hours. There is a 45W USB Type-C bundled charger capable of delivering 50% of charge from 0% within 45 minutes.
The power button on the convertible doubles up as a fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication purposes. It features WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5 as connectivity options. HP has priced the Chromebook x2 11 at $599.99 for the base model. The good thing is that all the models come bundled with a stylus.
