German website WinFuture leaked official images of the new ultra-compact HP Envy 8 Note, the first HP tablet with Wacom Active ES digitizer.
If the new HP Envy 8 Note is not a completely new device, since Microsoft introduced it during Computex 2015 and HP Switzerland with the FCC revealed the full datasheet few days ago, the still-unannounced Tablet PC is now esthetically defined thanks to German website WinFuture.
Powered by an Intel Atom x5 “Cherry Trail” processor, the new 8-inch tablet is a consumer-oriented Tablet PC that comes with a very particular 10-inch Bluetooth keyboard/case that also support the device in desk use through a small furrow in witch the user can snap the tablet – in a way similar to what happens with the 10-inch Lenovo Miix 3.
The leaked images show a small and plastic device, with only a microUSB port and a 3.5 mm audio jack. The only new thing coming from the pictures, in addition to the presence of Bang & Olufsen Play stereo speakers, is the new HP Active Stylus with Wacom Active ES technology – a new technology for Hewlett-Packard, that at the same time uses Wacom EMR, Atmel and Synaptics digitizers on its extremely large portfolio of consumer and business Tablet PCs.
