HP has now launched its all-new HP Omen 16 laptop in India after a long wait. This laptop was launched earlier today and boasts some exciting features that we are yet to see at this price point.
The Omen series is HP’s most famous series and is heavily focused on gaming for some background information. All Omen laptops have well-optimized specifications for gaming, and the design language is on the same page. HP is trying to compete with Asus ROG, Lenovo Legion, and Dell Alienware with this series.
As for this newly launched model, namely, the HP Omen 16 2021 Edition, it will start in India at Rs 1,39,999, which is a very high price point. HP launched this exact model in the USA earlier this May for USD 1,049.99, roughly Rs 75000. This gaming laptop does offer a lot to justify its price, though. You can buy this laptop from HP’s offline and online stores as well as online retailers.
Coming to the actual specifications, the HP Omen 16 (2021) features a 16.1″ 1440p screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio and 165Hz refresh rate. What makes this display unique is that it is 100% sRGB. This crucial feature boosts the display’s colour accuracy and is often overlooked by brands.
As for the inside, this laptop ships with an Intel Core i7-11800H processor and options in graphics cards up to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 with 8GB of dedicated memory. This perfect combination balances both CPU and GPU performance to give you the best experience. This laptop can also be equipped with up to 16GB of RAM. The downside is that the RAM is capped at 3200MHz, which is disappointing at this price point.
The laptop can be kitted out with up to 1TB (1000GB) PCIe Gen 4×4 SSD storage. This new generation of SSDs claims to deliver over 2x the speed. The laptop also has an improved internal design and enhanced airflow mechanism, with blades that are 2.5 times as thin and have over a 200% increase in blade count compared to the Omen 15.
This laptop weighs 2.3 kilograms which is a relatively lightweight machine. It is all powered by a whopping 83WHr battery that should satisfy all your needs. This machine is made using post-consumer recycled ocean-bound plastic and includes a recycled aluminium stamped cover to help maintain a sustainable environment.
The HP Omen (2021) is an excellent machine for hardcore gamers and delivers the expected performance for its extravagant price tag!
