Another of HP’s announcements today is what they are claiming as the world’s first 14-inch USB Type-C portable display and is HP’s first 1920x1080 portable display. The new S14 portable display is designed to provide users the ability to quickly connect another monitor to their laptop or tablet expanding screen real estate while being able to carry it alongside the other device for ease of transport. HP claims that productivity is said to increase with more screen space as well as making collaboration easier when using a second display. 

The EliteDisplay S14 14-inch portable monitor features a wraparound easel cover with which to support the monitor when in use – no other attachments are needed. When not in use, the cover protects the monitor when traveling, similar to a tablet cover. HP claims that the design aesthetic will compliment other HP PCs and in this case, comes in black with the only standout look being the HP logo on the back as well as the base of the panel. There is a single USB-C port that will carry both video and power in order to minimize additional dongles and clutter in the workspace. Power is fed from the notebook or tablet it is connected to, so battery life of the laptop can be shorter when in use. The panel is rated to use around 5W with a maximum of 15W according to HP.

Specifications wise, the 16:9 aspect ratio 14-inch monitor measures in at 12.91” x 0.34” x 8.24” and weighs in at 2.2 lbs without the stand. HP says these values translate to a 46% thinner and 12% lighter device than previous generations. Comparing this to the S140u, the bezels are unquestionably smaller along with a smaller overall footprint. Color gamut nor the specific IPS panel type was not listed in the specifications. 


The panel is an IPS LED backlit display with 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles using a native Full HD (1920x1080) resolution at 60 Hz refresh (5ms GTG). Brightness comes in at 220 nits with a 700:1 static contrast ratio. The display features anti-glare technology, language selection, LED backlighting, and on-screen controls. Users are able to adjust brightness, color, contrast, and it has buttons for accessing the menu, plus and minus control, input control, and power on/off – a typical array of controls on a monitor.

    14 inch 1080p...price is "ok" considering is IPS (if the actual in use performance justifies it of course)

    but size is not IMO...should be minimum of 15 inch (which is still really small) would preferably be 17+ to actual get decent screen real estate especially for something like Win 10 which chews up a bunch of room when open start 7 is not so bad because is fairly compact way it was designed, but still, screen too tiny is never a good thing.

    they should make a "fold out" style so it could be a single 14 inch and if you feel you need the extra screen space, "fold out" the second screen which is also 14 inch, tada 28 inch combined

    am sure it would not be that hard to accomplish ^.^

    there is no way to stitch 2 rectangles with 14 inch diagonal in order to get a rectangle with 28 inch diagonal. You need to stitch 4 together for that.

    How do you expect a user to carry around a >17" display? This is a *portable* display first and foremost. 14" is probably the same screen size as most laptops it'd be used with. I would prefer 15 to match my laptops, but the choice makes sense.

    Also, two 14 inch displays don't make a 28 inch display. If you tiled them, you'd get an 18" 16:18 display or a 25" 32:9 display.

    Huh... the same way people have been carrying a 17" laptop since forever?
  • Inteli - Wednesday, May 16, 2018 - link

    I meant *larger* than 17 inches.

    2.2lbs? How?!?!?!?! There is no computer in this thing, no battery, no nothing. It is a panel and backlight. My laptop is considered heavy at 3.5 lbs, and almost that entire weight is the battery and heatsink. Somehow I would expect this display to weigh in at ~1lb. Maybe a little more than that with the cover/stand.

    I think it has integrated external GPU (mostlikely a cheap one), as it's not stated as a dp over usb3. That's probably why.
  • mr_tawan - Tuesday, May 15, 2018 - link

    corrections: over usb type-c (not usb3)
  • inighthawki - Tuesday, May 15, 2018 - link

    "integrated external" GPU. Interesting...

    Make it more awesome: allow for daisy chain up to 6 external monitors
