HP seems to be preparing its next detachable Chromebook that will include the display resolution similar to the recently launched Pixel Slate. A refreshed model of the HP Chromebook x2 is listed on the company’s website with almost all the key details and one of the highlights is the 3000x2000 pixels resolution.
When Google Pixel Slate was launched, the HP Chromebook x2 was its only available competitor in the detachable Chromebook space. And, now HP seems to be ramping up the game and preparing a new detachable Chromebook for the next year. Well, the new device found on the website doesn’t only differ in terms of screen resolution but also in many other ways.
The other specifications of this model somewhat prove that such kind of product does exist and the display information isn’t a misprint. The name of the model is 12-f004Nf and a better processor is mentioned with better RAM and double storage. To be specific, the detachable Chromebook has a Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and 64GB storage when compared to the current model which is 12-F014DX.
Another fact that gives more strength to this story is the presence of a backlit keyboard. This model is likely to cost $250-$300 more than the model with standard configuration.
If the listing is true then the HP Chromebook x2 detachable will going to have a major upgrade over the current model. However, Google has already launched a competitor with the same display configuration but it’s yet not available.
