HP Inc. today introduced the new ENVY x360 13, a creative powerhouse 2-in-1 laptop, and the Elite Dragonfly Folio G3 Laptop, a next-generation convertible PC for business, giving professionals today the right tools for the ultimate work experience.
With nearly half of workers having at least some flexibility in where they work in 2023[i], it is critical for people to have the right technology to make personal connections and meaningful contributions while having an equal seat at the table. Beyond faulty technology and unstable Wi-Fi, 90% of technology users in Asia said background and other environmental disturbances are derailing productive meetings[ii]. They want devices with personalized experiences that enable them to securely collaborate, create, and be productive anywhere and at any time.
“The hybrid workplace is giving businesses and professionals more freedom than ever before, and HP is in an excellent position to deliver innovative experiences that support this ongoing work transformation,” said Yogesh Bhatia, HP Singapore PC Category Lead. “Savvy professionals today are constantly on the go; what they prize most are premium devices that empower and delight with every interaction. The ENVY x360 13 and Dragonfly Folio G3, together with accompanying peripherals, meet these expectations and more, allowing creative and working professionals to reach their full potential in the work arrangement of their choice.”
Your New Mobile Office
Delivering a premium experience, the HP Dragonfly Folio G3 showcases a pull-forward design that seamlessly transitions from laptop to tablet, empowering collaborative thinkers to work from anywhere, capturing and sharing ideas whenever they strike.
Immersive Experience: Enhanced by HP Presence, the Elite Dragonfly delivers an exceptional collaboration experience with Audio by Bang & Olufsen and four discrete amps working together to create immersive sound, HP Dynamic Voice Leveling automatically optimizing voice clarity, and AI-based noise reduction 2.0 enhancing audio so people can be heard even when wearing a mask. The 8MP camera ensures users show up naturally and the 100-degree field-of-view makes it easy for collaboration. When users want to think on their feet, HP Auto Frame[iii] keeps users in frame even when they want to stand, stretch, or move around – perfect for days with back-to-back meetings.
Increased Performance: Powered by Intel vPro® with 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, the Elite Dragonfly Folio G3 allows users to handle resource-intensive projects and demanding business applications with ease. Experience powerful PC performance with a new thermal solution that helps optimize the PC’s performance without adding significant weight or thickness.

HP Privacy Alert[v] lets users know when prying eyes are viewing their screen so they can quickly switch on optional HP Sure View[vi] to blur the screen from unwanted eyes.
