HP’s Omen X 2S: The world’s first dual-screen gaming laptop

HP has joined the crowd with the Omen X 2S, a gaming laptop that features a primary 15-inch display along with a secondary 6-inch screen that’s built into the deck. THP takes its dual-screen approach further with a nifty feature called screen mirroring that lets you zoom in on a portion of a game and show it on the second display.

The main screen in the HP Omen X 2S is 15.6-inches in diagonal and can be configured at purchase as a 1080p display with 144Hz or 240Hz max refresh, or you can swap it out for a 4K HDR 400 60Hz panel. Inside you can choose from Intel 9th Gen Core processors up to an octa-core Core i9, and up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics  alongside up to 32GB of RAM  and storage options maxing out at two 1TB NVMe M.2 SSDs configured in RAID0.

In an interview with Engadget, HP’s VP of Product Management, Josephine Tan, said that the second screen feature is very much inspired by the Chinese market — including some 500,000 local Omen fans HP gathered over the past couple of years, according to Su-yin Yam, VP of Consumer PC & Mobility. In a survey conducted by HP, 89 percent of the Chinese gamers said they keep their phones right next to them while gaming, mainly for strategic chats with fellow gamers on WeChat as well as playing music.
