HP has refreshed their OMEN and Pavillion Gaming lineups which includes the world’s first dual-screen gaming laptop, the OMEN X 2S laptop.
HP OMEN X2S
The new OMEN X2S laptop comes with a 15-inch display (either 1080p or 4K resolution) and a smaller 6-inch 1080p touch display just above the keyboard. The laptop is just 20mm thin and has a metal chassis. The keyboard on the OMEN X2S comes with RGB per-key lighting.
The second screen can be used to control the OMEN Command Center and also watch livestreams on Twitch/Mixer and talk to your friends. Basically, it’s like having a smaller display instead of having an external monitor. Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with game-changing evolutionary and revolutionary products reflects the philosophy of reinvention at HP,” said Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager, Consumer Personal Systems, HP Inc. “The OMEN brand continues to think big and OMEN X 2S is a prime example of how we are setting new standards and changing how a gaming laptop is used.”
In terms of specs, the OMEN X2S can be equipped with the 9th Gen Intel Core i H-series 6 or 8 core processor, DDR4 RAM and up to Nvidia RTX 2080 with Max-Q design.
The HP OMEN X2S is set to be released in June, starting at $2,999 CAD ($2,099 USD).
