HP launches at CES the new HP Spectre 15 x360 featuring an AMOLED display, the Omen 15 gaming laptop with a 240Hz display and the massive Omen X Emperium 65 gaming screen.
HP's Spectre x360
HP's revamped version of its current-generation Spectre x360 15 convertible laptop comes with a 15.6-inch AMOLED display, which allows the laptop to offer very bright and accurate colors (covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space), a very high contrast ratio (100,000:1), wide horizontal viewing angles, deep blacks and fast response time.
It has a dual-chamfered design for easier opening, a privacy kill switch on the webcam and very narrow bezels. As before, it can flip around a full 360 degrees, letting you use it as a tablet or in a tent formation to watch movies in bed.
HP plans to start selling its AMOLED display-equipped Spectre x360 15 this March. The company says that it will disclose exact specifications and prices closer to the actual launch.
Along with the x360, HP unveiled an updated version of its Spectre Folio, a leather Surface-like device with a detachable keyboard. It includes specs like an Intel Core i5-8200Y dual-core CPU, 8GB RAM, a 256GB SSD and Windows Ink-certified pen. The updated model, however, will bring a new 4K touchscreen option and "Bordeaux Burgundy" color. It's available starting today for $1,309.
HP's Omen 15
HP has also upped the refresh rate ante with its latest Omen 15. The company says it's the world's first gaming laptop with a 15.6-inch 1080p 240Hz IPS display.
The laptop itself is equipped with NVIDIA's latest RTX 2070 Max-Q mobile graphics, an 8th-generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SATA HDD and a 128GB NVMe SSD and the latest 802.11ax wireless, aka "WiFi 6."
The design remains unchanged from the last model, with ultra-slim side bezels, an LED keyboard and fairly lightweight 5.3 pound weight.
The Omen 15 arrives in February at a starting price of $1,370.

Massive gaming screen with G-Sync HDR and a soundbar
HP's latest gaming display is the Omen X Emperium 65, a massive screen that supports NVIDIA's G-SYNC HDR for smooth playback and rich colors across a wide dynamic range. Plus, its refresh rate goes up to 144hz for fluid gameplay.
The display uses a 64.5-inch 8-bit AMVA panel featuring a 3840×2160 resolution, 750 – 1000 nits brightness (typical/HDR), a 3200:1 – 4000:1 contrast ratio (minimum/typical), 178° viewing angles, a 120 - 144 Hz refresh rate (normal/overclocked), and a 4 ms GtG response time with overdrive enabled. Just like other G-Sync HDR monitors released to date, this one is equipped with a 384-zone full direct-array backlight to offer a finer-grained HDR experience, and enhanced with quantum dots to guarantee precise reproduction of 95% of the DCI-P3 color space.
The Emperium 65 also packs its own 120 W soundbar, which comes with a low frequency array, vibration reduction tech and a three-way stereo crossover system.
There's also a light sensor on the back to activate the LEDs when it detects that you're fumbling around looking for the ports.
The OMEN X Emperium 65 also comes with built-in SHIELD TV console along with 802.11ac Wi-Fi as well as GbE connectivity. The integrated SHIELD TV allows the TV to directly to play some SHIELD TV/Android games. The monitor is VESA DisplayHDR 1000-certified, so it meets the highest standards for a PC HDR monitor.
In terns of connectivity, the OMEN X Emperium 65 has a DisplayPort 1.4 input and three HDMI 2.0b inputs that support HDMI ARC.
The OMEN X Emperium 65 with Soundbar comes with a massive price tag of $4,999 (to start), when it becomes available in February.
