There have been rumors from various tech news sources lately about the development of HP SlateBook 10 X2. It seems that after the release of the HP Slate 7 tablet, the brand is now focusing on its very own smartphone that runs on an Android OS. The speculations were fueled when a German website called TabTech apparently discovered the details of the new device through an Antutu benchmark.
According to the site, the HP SlateBook 10 X2 will be equipped with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor and its operating system will be the Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. Then, based on the benchmark results pointed out by Android Authority, the SlateBook X2 scored better as compared to the HP Slate 21 AIO despite their similarity in terms of processor. The SlateBook X2 actually got a rating of 27,259 which is more than the Slate 21’s 23,584 score. However, the source pointed out that the benchmark scores from tests may vary so the difference may not be that significant.
Ubergizmo said that the SlateBook 10 X2 will have a 10-inch screen, as its name implies. But there is no word yet about its resolution. Moreover, its processor will be clocked to go up to 1.8GHz. There are no details also about its pricing yet and availability.
Some find the name of the SlateBook 10 X2 quite unusual too. So, others are wondering what the “X2” name means. However, it should be recalled that this is not the first time for the company to release a device with an “X2” name. They have released the HP Envy X2 before, wherein the “X2” means “the power of two devices in one product”.
On the other hand, the “SlateBook” could indicate that smartphone can be converted into a tablet or notebook. On a second thought, that could only be a brand name that has no meaning.
