HP Elite Dragonfly G2 will come with Qualcomm X55 5G modem and Intel 10th Gen Comet Lake processor
At the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, HP Inc. has lifted the covers off the new HP Elite Dragonfly G2 — a minor update over the previous Dragonfly which was launched just a couple of months ago. The HP Elite Dragonfly G2 features Intel’s 10th Gen Core vPro Comet Lake processors, along with a couple of optional upgrades over the previous generation. While the Elite Dragonfly G2 hasn’t changed a whole lot on the outside, it does pack a couple of surprises on the inside.
Along with the 10th Gen Intel processors, the laptop will bring 5G support, thanks to the optional Snapdragon X55 5G modem. The modem was announced early last year and it can already be found on a number of 5G enabled Android devices. However, prospective buyers will have to wait until much later this year in order to get 5G support. In a statement regarding 5G support on the Dragonfly G2, Alex Katouzian, SVP and GM of the Mobile division at Qualcomm Technologies was quoted saying, “Qualcomm continues to lead in LTE connected PCs, allowing users to have blazing fast connectivity while on the go, and we are thrilled to drive 5G connected PCs in collaboration with HP.”
Additionally, the Elite Dragonfly G2 will also feature HP’s upgraded third-gen display privacy technology called Sure View Reflect. The technology, which can also be found on the new HP Spectre X360, works better in more lighting conditions ensuring user privacy. With this technology onboard, Dragonfly G2 users won’t have to worry about people peeking over their shoulders, thanks to the distinct copper-colored privacy screen. On top of all this, the Dragonfly G2 is also the world’s first laptop with built-in Tile support. This is also an optional upgrade and will allow users to keep a track of their laptop’s location at all times. Another cool thing about the Dragonfly G2 is that it’s the world’s first notebook made with ocean-bound plastic material and over 82% of its mechanical parts are made from recycled materials.
Along with the HP Elite Dragonfly G2, the company also showcased the new HP Spectre X360 15, HP Envy 32 AiO, and a few new displays and sustainable accessories at the trade show.
