And it weighs 2.8 lbs. HP is also offering 4K OLED 400-nit display with True Black HDR for a 100,000:1 high contrast ratio for amazing viewing experiences. In addition to Nightfall Black with Copper Luxe accents and Poseidon Blue with Pale Brass accents, HP now has Natural Silver color option.

HP also claims that this new Spectre x360 13 offers double the performance when compared to previous year model, thanks to a quad-core 10th Gen Intel Core processor with Iris Plus Graphics. With 1080p display, this convertible will offer up to 22 hours of battery life.
