At CES 2021 in Las Vegas, HP is focusing on its business laptop, but adding a novelty for the general public: the Envy 14, a multimedia PC that intends to cast a wide net.
HP’s Envy line already has 13 and 15-inch computers. The Envy 14 which has been announced by the manufacturer only, will link between the two with a 14-inch screen in 16:10 format. This full HD touch screen is supposed to provide good color accuracy from the factory with a Delta E of less than 2. Anytime (without using Post-It) some new features are expected with a physical shutter to hide the webcam, as well as a key on the keyboard dedicated to stopping the microphone.

Fast charging will also be accessible with Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi. The keyboard is backlit and there is a fingerprint reader to unlock the screen.
