If you were expecting your HP Envy X2 to ship some time this week you are about to be disappointed, as HP has pushed back the release date for the device.

Back in December, HP announced new ENVY x2, their first Snapdragon-based Windows 10 device at Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit. The device became available for pre-order on the 22nd February with a ship date of the 9th March.

Now HP has pushed back the release date by 2 weeks, to the 23rd March 2018. The device is also marked as out of stock, making it difficult to place a pre-order.

The HP ENVY x2 is a detachable PC like Microsoft’s Surface Pro but it is powered by Snapdragon 835 processor. This device is extremely thin and it measures just 6.9mm thickness. And it weighs just 1.54 pounds. Using the nano SIM connectivity, you can enjoy 4G LTE speeds on this device. HP also claims that it will offer up to 22 hours of battery life. This device features 12-inch full HD display with support for Windows Ink.

Key Specs:

  • Windows 10 S
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor
  • 4 GB memory; 128 GB UFS storage
  • Qualcomm Adreno 540 GPU
  • 12.3″ diagonal WQXGA+ touch display
  • 1 headphone/microphone combo; 1 USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 (Data Transfer up to 5 Gb/s, DisplayPort 1.3 Power Delivery); 1 nano-SIM
  • HP Wide Vision 5MP Camera (front-facing); HP 13MP Camera (rear-facing); Three integrated digital microphones
  • Bang & Olufsen, dual speakers

The delay may be to get the latest version of Windows 10, Redstone 4, onto the device before it ships, as the OS has specific customizations for always connected PCs and is expected to hit RTM soon.

When available, the HP ENVY x2 can be pre-ordered from here.
