It’s open season for laptops as demand surged with more people working from home. To capitalise on this trend, Digit has learned that HP is planning to launch a laptop with a SIM card slot to target small and medium businesses and professionals working from home.

HP 4G LTE Launching mid-June

Our sources tell us the HP laptop will launch in the middle of June. HP will be collaborating with a leading telecom player to provide dedicated data plans through a SIM card so that users remain always connected. The laptop will be marketed under the “Always Connected” banner, which indicates an Intel-based 4G LTE modem, if marketing speak is anything to go by.

Having said that, Qualcomm also made a big splash in this emerging “Always On-Always Connected” category in December 2019, with the launch of the Snapdragon 8c and Snapdragon 7c SoCs made specifically for mobile PCs. If so, this could be the first laptop to bring the technology to India.

HP 4G LTE Aggressively priced

We also learnt that HP is planning to launch the PC which is priced at least half of the current prices for “Always Connected” premium notebooks. This is to help target the mainstream masses who are working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Presently, all laptops with 4G LTE connectivity fall in the premium thin and light category. That includes top tier variants of Lenovo ThinkPad and Dell Latitude. Undercutting the status quo can be a good way to acquire more customers.

The aggressive pricing may also target the likes of the iPad Pro, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, and the Microsoft Surface devices, all of which come with dedicated 4G LTE SIM card slots.
