The HP Pro x2 612 G2 is the latest 2-in-1 detachable from the company to compete with Microsoft's Surface lineup. The Pro x2 is aimed at consumers who want productivity from a compact device.

The HP Pro x2 features a 12-inch Full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on top. The device is powered by 7th gen Intel Core m3, i5 or i7 processors. It offers 8GB RAM and up to 512GB onboard storage. The HP Pro x2 also offers modern connectivity options like WLAN, optional WWAN and NFC - features that would appeal to mobile professionals.

The HP Pro x2 turns into a full computer by connecting keyboards via pogo pins. The collaboration keyboard features dedicated keys to manage voice and video conference calls. It is backlit and offers a trackpad with multitouch gesture support. The Pro x2 comes with ingress protection rating of MIL-STD-810g standard and HP says the device will be ideal for government, healthcare and retail usage. The detachable device also offers security options like TPM 2.0/1.2, integrated smart card reader and optional pad fingerprint reader.

Since the introduction of the Microsoft Surface lineup, PC makers have been trying to figure out a winning formula around convertibles. With Intel's 7th generation Kabylake chipsets and a rugged design, HP's Pro x2 might appeal to a niche userbase. The HP Pro x2 starts at $979 (Rs. 65,300), and the company is also selling a rugged case for the Pro x2, priced at $49 (Rs. 3,300).
