Toshiba announces world’s first 4K Ultra HD convertible notebook
The US branch of the Japanese Toshiba has announced the Satellite Radius 12, a compact 2-in-1 notebook for business users. The notebook comes with a 12.5-inch convertible 4K Ultra HD display, which makes it the first such device in the world. In addition to this the Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 sports Intel Skylake processors, an excellent display, great sound quality and a sleek and lightweight design.
“Through our deep relationships with our partners at Microsoft, Intel and Technicolor we have designed a top-of-line compact PC that delivers the new gold standard in screen, sound and performance for an unmatched computing experience on Windows 10,” said Philip Osako, senior director of product marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “The Satellite Radius 12 expertly blends the latest technology into an extremely powerful, yet compact and easy-to-carry PC that is not only versatile, but durable enough to handle a highly mobile lifestyle.”
The Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 can be configured with a brilliant 12.5-inch diagonal IPS touchscreen display that works at a native 4K Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) that yields four times as many pixels as a Full HD display. The wide gamut display also supports 100 per cent Adobe RGB color space reproduction and meets the same strict standards for color fidelity used in Hollywood movies. In addition to all this the display is protected by all-new Gorilla Glass NBT, which offers 8x-10x higher scratch resistance than soda lime glass displays.
The new notebook also offers Intel Skylake processors for higher performance, enhanced graphics and better power efficiency. All the hardware is housed in a chassis made of durable aluminum that weighs just 2.9 pounds (1.3 kg) and has a slim 0.6-inch (1.5 cm) profile. The chassis features a 360-degree precision hinge that offers smooth transitions between its five viewing modes – Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience. The laptop features a Brushed Metal Finish in Carbon Gray and includes an LED backlit keyboard.
The Toshiba Sattelite Radius 12 will be in stores in October 2015. There’s no information how much the new notebook will cost.
