    Ok folks, here is the updated post with the official specs:

    Three major changes.
    • The biggest change vs. the 1012 G1 is that the G2 now uses i-U CPUs and it is fan-cooled.
    • Bigger and higher-res display, same as the Surface Pro 4
    • Bigger battery, now 47 Wh vs. 40 Wh on the G1

    A couple days ago a new FCC application for a tablet from HP was published. It offers only little concrete information, but it seems to to be for the HP Elite X2 1012 G2.

    The model no. mentioned in the FCC filing is "HSN-I07C" and further research on that model no. leads to a UL listing that mentions this:

    Tablet, Model(s) HSN-I07C, HP Elite x2 1012 G2 Tablet, HP Elite x2 1012 G2X (f4)

    Source: http://productspec.ul.com/document.php?id=NWGQ.E131920
    The FCC application also mentions the same model no. for the keyboard, HSTNN-I72K, as the current Elite x2 1012 G1 tablet:

    Keyboard: 1. Model No.: HSN-D06K, Supplier: HP 2. Model No.: HSTNN-I72K, Supplier: HP
    Finally, HP put a video online that gives us a 360-degree spin of the Elite x2 1012 G2. The design is mostly the same, with only few differences:
    • On the right side, the USB-C/TB3 port and the micro-SD slot have switched positions
    • On the top, the speaker grills (?) are bigger
    • The bezels seem to be a tiny bit smaller, so maybe this one will be 12.3"?
    What is alse interesting from that FCC filing's page is that it might accept all different voltages that USB-PD offers.

    Also, in November already there was a FCC publication for a "HSN-I06C" tablet, which mentioned the HSN-D06K keyboard, which is now also included in the above Elite x2 1012 G2 filing. That listing showed a ~12" tablet with LTE, which is presumably a successor to the current Spectre x2.

    FYI, the OEM manufacturer for these is Inventec.

    Here are the Spectre x2 2017 (presumably) documents:

    Thanks for the info. The same as previous year. :( They could have at least offer better resolution.

    Is this a business model or is the Pro the business model or do I have HP's naming schemes wrong?

    @bloodycape Both the "Pro x2" and the "Elite x2" are business models.

    But the Elite x2 seems aimed more at the office folks, while the Pro x2 seems more aimed at workers in the field, in retail, etc.

    Though in general, HP's naming scheme totally sucks! :confused:

    Vents? That implies an "i" core processor instead of the "M" of the G1 series.

    edit: my M7 HP Elite has no vents, just speakers at the top.

    Oh, I thought these were for better passive ventilation. My mistake, then I guess those are simply bigger speaker grills as well.

    Agree with your original observation. Those sure look like vents. Not just speakers. To me that implies a non core M processor, but an i series.
