Toshiba will be releasing two new convertibles and a 2-in-1 in the coming months that can be used as either a laptop with a full keyboard, or converted into a tablet device for easy mobility. Two models of Satellite Radius convertible and a Satellite Click detachable device will debut later this year.
Toshiba Satellite Radius 12
The Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is a convertible laptop with 360 degrees of rotation allowing it to quickly convert into a tablet-like device. The 12.5-inch display features a ridiculous 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) that the company said is calibrated and certified by Technicolor, and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass NBT reinforcement.
The Radius 12 also comes equipped with an HD webcam (we presume it's an Intel RealSense camera) that is capable of facial recognition to support Windows Hello biometric authentication. It's equipped with an unspecified Skylake "Core" processor.
Toshiba Satellite Radius 14
The Satellite Radius 14 is a slightly larger device featuring a 14-inch, 10-point multi-touch device, though it features a much lower HD resolution. The Radius 14 offers five different modes of use: Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience. The company did not specify what the difference between each "Presentation" and "Audience" are.
The two Radius models do explicitly share a number of features, though. They each come equipped with Harmon Kardon speakers with DTS technology. Both Radius models also feature Bluetooth Link, which will let you stream music from any Bluetooth device, such as a smartphone, directly to the speakers.
Radius 14 devices have the option of Intel or AMD processors and the choice to add an SSD. Toshiba was not as clear about the options available for the smaller Radius 12.
Toshiba Satellite Click 10
Toshiba also announced a detachable 2-in-1 device, the Satellite Click 10. The full-size keyboard has the ability to completely detach from the rest of the unit. The company said it will come equipped with the latest Intel Atom processor and up to 4 GB of memory, and it features 64 GB of eMMC storage space with the ability to add 128 GB more via microSD card. Audio is handled by a pair of side-firing speakers with Dolby Digital Plus technology.
Toshiba claimed the Satellite Click 10 will be capable of up to 14 hours of use between charges, and said that it has developed an intelligent discharge system for the device. While charging, the tablet will be prioritized, and the keyboard will only charge after the main device is fully charged. While discharging, the keyboard battery will be run down first, conserving the main battery until it has been depleted or disengaged.
Designed For Windows 10
Toshiba has designed all three of these upcoming devices to be used with Windows 10, and they will come with the OS pre-installed. Each of these three Satellites sport a designated Cortana button to bring up the digital assistant, and Toshiba has included hardware to improve its use. All three of the upcoming models feature dual-array microphones, which Toshiba said will make voice recognition more reliable in noisy spaces.
Toshiba said all three will support Continuum, Microsoft's technology to aid transitioning from one device to another within the Windows 10 ecosystem. Continuum will make it possible to switch between tablet and laptop modes without impacting running applications.
Toshiba has not released any specific pricing information, nor has it announced specific release dates for these devices, though the company said they will be available in Q4 of this year.
