The French chain store FNAC unveiled a new, still unannouced Tablet PC from Hewlett-Packard: it is the HP Pavilion 12 x2 (12-b000 series) a 12-inch hybrid with Core m3 processor.
Hewlett-Packard is ready to launch a new hybrid Tablet PC with Windows 10: the new device is the HP Pavilion 12 x2, a 12-inch 2-in-1 that is an expanded version of the Pavilion 10 x2 (10-n*00 series) which has proven a bestseller in this pre-Christmas period.
The new Pavilion 12 x2 12-b000 series is still unannouced – most likely HP will present it officially during the CES 2016 in Las Vegas – but it has been unveiled by French store FNAC, that released an apparently complete datasheet on its website (unfortunately there are no photos).
According to FNAC website, the new device will be a €699-priced, Core m3-based hybrid device with a 12-inch Full HD (1920×1200) IPS display. Like the Pavilion 10 x2 (10-n*00 series) there is a USB Type-C port for data and charging (a 45W USB-C charger will be included in the box), a full-size USB 2.0 and a microHDMI; a couple of B&O Play (by Bang & Olufsen) speakers are also present.
The full datasheet of the 12-b000nf configuration shows:
- Intel Core m3-6Y30 (2.2 GHz)
- Intel HD515 Graphics
- 4 GB LPDDR3 SDRAM
- 128 GB SSD
- 12-inch (1920×1200) IPS display
- USB 2.0; USB-C 3.1; microHDMI; audio combo
- microSD reader
- WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac; Bluetooth
- B&O Play stereo speakers
- 33 Wh internal battery
- Weight: 1470 grams
- Dimensions: 300 x 220 x 19 mm
- Windows 10 Home (64 bit)
Highly probable but unconfirmed is the presence of a Synaptics digitizer. At the moment there is no official confirmation of the product from Hewlett-Packard, but most likely the new HP Pavilion 12 x2 will be officially announced during or before the Consumer Electronic Show, that will start in Las Vegas on January 5th, and will be released in the first months of 2016. At the moment there is no evidence of non-French configurations.
