In appearance, the new product resembles other folding devices of the brand from the Specter family. When placed on a desk with the built-in stand folded down, the Specter Fold becomes a 17-inch all-in-one. If you fold it and connect it with a wireless magnetic keyboard, then this is already a 12.3-inch laptop. Without a keyboard, it’s a tablet.

The basis of the device is a 10-core Intel Core i7-1250U processor, complemented by 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of solid-state drive. The OLED display with an aspect ratio of 3:4 is capable of displaying images in a resolution of 1920 × 2560 pixels. In the top frame, users will find a GlamCam camera. According to the company, the battery will last for 12 hours of active operation.
