The newest Hewlett Packard Spectre and ENVY laptops which debuted on July 28, 2022, were built with the flexibility to create and live seamlessly in a hybrid world. As the landscape of the economic world changes and shifts to an era where people are free to pursue part-time or full-time opportunities like never before, technology has become more important than ever. With e-commerce being an immensely popular way to do business and earn a side-income, the right tools will empower people to easily start and run their newfound ventures.
“With more professionals following their passions through their side hustles, they need devices that enable them to develop relevant and engaging products and services that delight customers wherever they are,” Alex Tan, Managing Director of HP Inc. Malaysia. “This is why HP has launched a spectacular line up of Spectre and ENVY PCs, as well as peripherals that will empower them to capture every idea, collaborate with anyone and create with no limits.”
The new line ups are built with HP Presence4 and HP GlamCam to deliver amazing video and audio call experiences, with features like:
• A 5 MP camera for picture-perfect clarity when collaborating with colleagues or pitching clients.
• HP Auto Frame and HP Dynamic Voice Levelling for an interactive video and sound experience no matter where you are in the room.
• Backlight Adjustment to autocorrect video images in any environment where you may be taking a call.
• Appearance Filter7 for the 60% of us who are more self-conscious on camera than in real life. This feature allows you to easily touch up skin, teeth, and eyes.
• Bi-directional AI noise reduction, directional beamforming mics, and quad speakers for a superb sound experience during video or audio calls.
• Network Booster for network bandwidth optimization to reduce screen freezes and dropped calls.
• AI-based privacy alerts to collaborate and create in public spaces, blurring the screen when someone is behind you.
A wide range of options including processors and displays that make sure the devices are able to help the user create whatever they want. These options include:
• A 3K2K OLED display for a more natural viewing experience on the HP Spectre x360,10 and a 120 Hz display for a 2x faster display refresh rate for smooth, response actions on the new HP ENVY 16.
• A touch display to leverage multi-gestures like pinch-to-zoom, double tap, and press and hold to create and easily manipulate drawings and other creative content. Easily take notes or sketch with pen-abled PCs.
• A variety of screen sizes and aspect ratios offer the best fit for your creative flow. Choose from a 3:2 aspect ratio device for web browsing and productivity tasks; and a 16:10 for video and audio editing.
• Intel® Evo™ platforms featuring 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors for improved multi-tasking and performance. 1 Battery life is an important aspect of technology, but so are the tools required to extend the battery charge. Available devices with Intel processors offer intelligent power management features like:
• Power Saver mode extends the battery life whenever there is a concern about charging accessibility.
• In-bag detection leveraging Intel® Dynamic Tuning Technology to adjust the PC’s power to avoid overheating or battery drain when put in a bag.
• Adaptive Battery Optimizer monitors battery temperature, battery-charging status, and usage time to preserve your battery’s health.
• Smart Sense optimizes a device’s performance, temperature, and more based on the application being used.
The new Spectre and ENVY devices all come with HP Palette pre-installed, a proprietary digital workspace to help simplify the creative flow and allows you for smooth cross-device collaboration. Find any face in photographs with HP PhotoMatch. Enjoy infinite, flexible sketching with Concepts. Drop anything to any device seamlessly, wirelessly with HP QuickDrop20.
