Toshiba’s Satellite Radius 12 Brings 4K & Facial Recognition To A 2-In-1

4K isn’t just for laptops anymore.

Toshiba has unveiled a new top-of-the-line convertible two-in-one laptop with a 4K Ultra HD display. The Radius 12 is also said to be one of the first small-screen PCs to enable facial authentication with Windows Hello, powered by an onboard infrared camera. Windows Hello enables customers to log in to the laptop instantaneously using only their face.

In other specs, the device features a sixth-generation Intel Core processor, a wide-gamut 12.5-inch Technicolor-certified RGB touchscreen display, a slim 0.6-inch profile weighing in at just 2.8 pounds, LED backlit keyboard, and a brushed-metal Carbon Gray finish.

A 360-degree precision hinge offers smooth transitions between five viewing modes: laptop, tablet, tabletop, presentation and audience.

Regarding the display, Technicolor senior VP Manuèle Wahl commented: “Technicolor has certified that the color accuracy offered by the Satellite Radius 12’s 4K Ultra HD display delivers color faithful to the intention of all content creators for viewing and enjoying digital content.”

The laptop’s display is reinforced with all-new Gorilla Glass NBT, which offers eight to 10 times higher scratch resistance than soda lime glass displays, the company said.

The Satellite Radius 12 will roll out in the U.S. starting in the fourth quarter. Pricing and configurations are to be announced at a later date.
