French chain store FNAC unveiled a larger, 15.6-inch Spectre x360 with Intel Skylake-U processors, up to 16 GB of RAM and a 4K IPS convertible display.
There is a bigger Spectre x360 out there: the French store FNAC unveiled the still unannounced HP Spectre 15 x360 (15-ap000 series), a 15.6-inch convertible 2-in-1 with last-generation Intel Core Skylake-U processors, UHD (3840×2160) 4K display and large connectivity.
According to the FNAC website, that revealed the datasheet of two different configurations (15-ap000nf and 15-ap001nf), the new high-end convertible will have a larger screen but also 3 full-size USB 3.0 ports, a USB-C 3.1 port and two video out (HDMI and miniDisplayPort). An high-quality, four-speakers Bang & Olufsen audio system is also present.
No photos or description are available, but most likely the new Spectre 15 x360 will be a larger version of the Spectre 13 x360 – with a similar aesthetic and a full-metal hull. The full datasheet shows:
- Intel Core i5-6200U or i7-6500U
- Intel HD520 Graphics
- 8 or 16 GB LPDDR3 SDRAM
- 256 or 512 GB M.2 SSD
- 15.6-inch (3840×2160) IPS display
- 3x USB 3.0; USB-C 3.1; HDMI; miniDisplayPort; audio combo
- SD Card reader
- WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac; Bluetooth 4.0
- Miracast support
- Four Bang & Olufsen speakers
- Backlit keyboard
- 64.5 Wh internal battery
- Weight: 1820 grams
- Dimensions: 378 x 247 x 16 mm

According to the FNAC website, the Spectre 15 x360 will be available in France at least two different configurations, priced €1499 (Core i5, 8 GB, 256 GB) and €1999 (Core i7, 16 GB, 512 GB); highly probable but unconfirmed is the presence of a Synaptics digitizer.
At the moment there is no evidence of non-French configurations or official confirmation of the product from Hewlett-Packard, but most likely the new HP Spectre 15 x360 (15-ap000 series) will be officially announced during the CES 2016 in early January.
