AMOLED displays are pretty common in high-end smartphones, where they’re known for offering vivid colors, darker blacks, and high contrast ratios, among other things. But it’s a lot harder to find a laptop with an AMOLED display… in a few months there should be at least one more option though.
HP plans to begin offering an AMOLED display option for the HP Spectre 15 x360 convertible laptop this spring.
HP first launched the high-end laptop late last year, but at the time it was only available with LCD display options. That’s not surprising, since that’s true of most laptops.
The company hasn’t revealed how much the new display option will cost, but if I had to guess, I’d say “a lot.” The starting price for a model with a standard display is $1390.
HP says the AMOLED display has a 100,000:1 contrast ratio, wide viewing angles, and support for 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut, with 33 percent more colors than sRGB.
The laptop features Thunderbolt 3, USB Type-C and Type-A ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, a headset jack, and a microSD card reader and HP offers models with up to an Intel Core i7 Coffee Lake-H processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphics.
