You are probably familiar with the name HP Pavilion 10 X2. That’s because this convertible tablet was introduced last year and HP decided not to change the name for the newer iteration. Now, that doesn’t mean it’s the same device. In fact, they are completely different.
HP Pavilion 10 X2 specs
- Windows 10 OS
- 10.1-inch 1366x768p display
- Intel Atom X7 8700 Cherry Trail processor
- 2 GB of RAM
- 32 GB of internal storage
- 12 hours of battery life
- Around 800 grams (including the keyboard)
As you can see, we can’t get all the details just yet. This is because HP hasn’t really announced this device and it’s pretty much a prototype. This means it could very well be changed before it goes official, but we must say the device looks pretty close to final.
For starters, this is night and day compared to its predecessor. This tablet comes with a sturdy keyboard dock you will actually love, as opposed to that lame keyboard case the other version had. The processor was also upgraded to Intel’s Cherry Trail architecture (coming from Bay Trail).
The keyboard is also pretty good, as the magnets that connect it to the tablet are strong and solid. We also love that HP was able to provide good space between keys and all buttons seem to be the right size. That’s a hard feat to accomplish with any 10-inch tablet.
Another big change is the addition of that USB-C port. It seems all manufacturers are jumping on this new technology. It works for data transfer and other features, but it’s also the tablet’s main charging source. Keep that in midn when getting your accessories and converters.
And of course, we also have no pricing and availability information on this prototype tablet. Hopefully some news on it will be unveiled soon!
