The laptop has privacy-focused features including a fingerprint reader, physical shutter for the 720p webcam and the dedicated mic mute key on the keyboard. The AI noise removal tool removes background noise when you are on a call or recording audio. The laptop will also feature HP’s enhanced lighting feature, centered around a selfie light with on-screen lighting controls to help you look better during video calls. This feature should be available in February.
The latest HP Envy 14, that starts at $ 999, is expected to arrive later this month.
Elite wireless headphones are also joining the HP product line. They are designed for seamless switching between devices using a Windows 10, iOS, and Android app. Features include adjustable noise cancellation, custom audio tuning, and audio situation presets, while they come with a USB-C charging case. HP has yet to reveal pricing, but the Elite wireless headphones are expected to arrive in April.
The HP 635 Wireless Multi-Device Mouse has a one-year battery life, according to the company. You’ll be able to connect up to three devices via the USB dongle or two using Bluetooth for “seamless transitions” between your PC and tablet, says HP. The ultra-small mouse features four programmable silent click buttons on the sides. It should arrive next month and will cost $ 60.
In addition, HP has updated its range of monitors. The M-series FHD displays feature Eyesafe-certified low-blue light technology that doesn’t impact color accuracy, according to the company. The monitors, which are borderless on three sides, are made with recycled plastic bound to the ocean. They will start at $ 139 and will likely arrive in March.
Additionally, HP has unveiled a pair of monitors that can supply up to 65W of power to laptops via USB-C. The E24u G4 and E27u G4 support serial connection and multi-port connectivity, as well as permanent Eye Ease blue light protection. You may be able to wake up your monitor and laptop (or put them to sleep) by pressing a single power button on the screen. The monitors should be available in February. The E24u will cost $ 219 and the E27u will set you back $ 339.
