The newest HP gaming laptop incorporates a mini LED touch screen on the keyboard so you can see other applications while playing your favorite games.
The Omen X 2S
It is the world's first dual-screen gaming laptop, according to HP. The main screen of the device reaches 15 inches, but in case you want to chat through Twitch or access Spotify while playing, you can easily do it with the help of the 6-inch screen below.
HP designed the product to attract players, particularly in China, who often use their smartphones to chat with friends, listen to music or watch videos while playing on a PC.
The second screen
It has a resolution of 1080p, it can also be used to improve your existing gaming experience. According to HP, it may reflect any part of the laptop's main screen in the smaller panel below.
"You can have it show the game map to a strategy title or a first-person shooter"
The touch screen can also allow you to view the Omen Command Center application, so you can see how well a game performs on the laptop and adjust its hardware settings accordingly.
The second screen will affect the battery life of the laptop, but can be set to dim after a period of inactivity to help save energy.
The Omen X 2S
It will arrive next month starting at $ 2,099. As a high-end gaming laptop, it will come equipped with a Max-Q version of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card.
You can also configure it with a 9th generation Intel Core H-Series CPU that runs six or eight cores.
Other configurable specifications include the 1080p screen, which can support 144Hz, 240Hz, or you can exchange it for a higher resolution 4K HDR 400 60Hz panel.
He is not the first to present a laptop with more than one screen.
In 2017, Razer unveiled a laptop with three screens, but the general idea seems to have been a concept. Before that, Acer pulled out the Iconia 6120, a laptop that replaced the keyboard with a touch screen. However, the device received largely negative reviews.
So we are interested to see if the second screen of the Omen X 2S is worth the high price. Stay tuned for our full review.
