HP Goes Big On Displays At CES 2019

From Forbes: This week I’m in Las Vegas attending CES 2019. The annual consumer electronics conference is a virtual who’s who of consumer tech, with most companies seizing the opportunity to announce flashy new products for the new year. Industry stalwart HP Inc., the #1 unit share PC manufacturer, kicked off the conference with a slate of new products geared towards what it calls “the changing ways people live, work, and play.”

HP has been executing its strategy of providing powerful, stylish PCs that cater to the blurring lines between work and leisure, called “One Life”, and the growing consumer desire to do both of those things, anytime, anywhere. Moreover, it has been executing this strategy well—last year’s HP Spectre Folio was one of my favorite devices I’ve used in a long time. The big story from this round of announcements is that HP is going all-in on its display game. Let’s take a closer look (note: Moor Insights & Strategy associate analyst Anshel Sag will be covering HP’s gaming related announcements here).

HP Inc. announced a new slate of immersive displays for its Pavilion laptop line. The one that I’m most excited about is the HP Pavilion 27 Quantum Dot, which I believe is the first Quantum Dot on glass display in the world, featuring a billion plus viewable colors. At 6.5mm wide, it’s the company’s thinnest display to date, with a three-side micro-edge display that makes the most of the available space. As for connectivity, the new display features USB-C video, DisplayPort, HDMI, and a USB 3.0 port. Quantum dot-based displays are known for their exceptional color reproduction as traditional displays are based on only three main colors. Quantum dot displays produce billions of colors where regular displays emit millions of colors. I am excited to try one of these new Quantum Dot displays out myself as I have never used one before.
