HP on Friday brought world’s first dual-screen gaming laptop “OMEN X 2S” to India for a starting price of Rs 209,990.
HP has added an additional second screen to the “OMEN X 2S” in the form of a six-inch (1080p) touchscreen in between the main screen and keypad that lets players message friends on WhatsApp, browse music streaming services, watch YouTube or even serve as a hub for “OMEN Command Center” software.
The “OMEN X 2S” has a real-time, screen mirroring feature that can cut and magnify parts of the main screen — including copying the map portion of a racing game — to the second screen, ensuring that vision is centered and head movement more vertical than horizontal, the company said in a statement.
“At HP, we share our users’ passion and love for the game — be it beginners, enthusiasts or professionals. We have engineered the best experiences based on user insights to enable a holistic and exciting gaming ecosystem for the modern gamers in India,” said Sumeer Chandra, Managing Director, HP Inc. India.
The OMEN X 2S is 20-mm thin (20 percent reduction in thickness over previous versions) with a full-metal chassis and is the first 15-inch diagonal gaming laptop to come with an applied liquid metal compound to the thermal system called “OMEN Tempest”.
The company also launched a new lineup of OMEN and HP Pavilion gaming devices in India to raise the bar for gaming experiences.
HP OMEN 15 Laptop is available now from a starting price of Rs 124,990 while HP Pavilion Gaming 15 Laptop is available from a starting price of Rs 70,990. Gaming Mouse would cost another Rs 1,799.
