To know more about the beautiful device, keep reading this HP Spectre x360 review focused on the latest offering from HP.

The Improvements to Expect in HP Spectre x360 16

Any new release of laptops means a new-gen processor, and it’s no different for the X360 16, which has Intel 11th Gen ‘Tiger Lake’ processors. These new processors bring several improvements like improving the 10nm architecture of Intel processors and even include the new Intel Iris XE Graphics. It’s a super-powerful GPU than the earlier generations while easing specific GPU-focused tasks.

Another significant development of the new processor is that it supports Thunderbolt4, essentially derives the maximum capacity of Thunderbolt3, and standardizes it. The biggest advantage is that you get 40GBps of bandwidth which is a boon for connecting the peripherals.


Let’s have a look at the HP Spectre x360 16 specs. An Intel Corei7-11390H processor powers the laptop with a 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD drive, and a discrete 4GB Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU. The computer has a few USB-C ports, an SD card reader, and a 3.5 mm Headphone Jack.

Design and Build

The HP Spectre x360 16 laptop has a distinctive design with angled rear corners to facilitate the placement of a couple of ports. The solid recycled CNC aluminum chassis provides a solid body, and the sleeve supplied with the laptop protects it from scratches and minor dings. The laptop measures 24.53cm (W)x 358 cm(D)x 199 cm thick and weighs 2.01 kg. But that’s what it comes to when you want a 16-inch screen.

As you can gather some hints from the name, the laptop’s screen rotates 360 degrees so that you can make it face outwards if you want to use it in tablet mode. But the device might be too big and heavy for use in tablet mode, which could make you feel uncomfortable operating the laptop. However, you can make some adjustments in computer placement to get better results.

Screen and Speakers

The screen and speakers are quite pleasing whether you use the device for leisure or productive purposes. The Bang and Olufsen speakers deliver superior audio quality without distortion but plenty of volumes. The sound emitting from upwardly angled grills on the front base of the chassis is soothing for the ears, and the placement of the grills ensures maximum audio access regardless of laptop or tablet mode. The AI-based noise cancellation system activates automatically during video calls.

The laptop has a superb screen, and it’s hard to describe how good it is. The UHD+ OLED touch screen (283 PPI and 3840×2400 pixels) maxes out at 400 nits and produces sharp and bright images even when running on the battery. You can adjust the screen settings to extend the battery life for daily use.

The screen-to-body ratio is 84.6%, which ensures more document visibility. However, there is scope for further improvement by narrowing down the bezels, which might happen in the later models.


The webcam placed above the careen centrally needs special mention. You can activate the 5 MP camera’s shutter with a hotkey; this might cause some vulnerability. With the help of the HP Command Center, you can control a host of camera features like the Auto Frame that ensures you always remain within the frame when you move around.

The keyboard of the HP Spectre x360 16 will inspire you to keep typing to enjoy the supreme convenience of the responsive and springy keys.
