Toshiba unveiled a new top of the line Windows 10 2-in-1 laptop ahead of the IFA that will turn heads.

The Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is a compact 2-in-1 laptop. What makes it special? It is the world's first 12.5-inch convertible laptop with a 4K Ultra HD display. And that is not all.

The Satellite Radius 12 runs Windows 10 on the new 6th Gen Intel Core processors.

Toshiba also is one of the first to support the Windows 10 Hallo facial authentication feature.  An on-board infrared camera enables user to log in to the laptop using only their face.

The highlight of the Radius 12 is the screen. The 12.5-inch diagonal IPS touchscreen display has a native 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) resolution that yields four times as many pixels as a Full HD display.

The wide gamut RGB display supports 100% Adobe® RGB color space reproduction.

Toshiba says that the color experts at Technicolor certify that the Radius 12 display also meets the same strict standards for color fidelity used in Hollywood movies. 

“Through our deep relationships with our partners at Microsoft, Intel and Technicolor we have designed a top-of-line compact PC that delivers the new gold standard in screen, sound and performance for an unmatched computing experience on Windows 10,” said Philip Osako, senior director of product marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “The Satellite Radius 12 expertly blends the latest technology into an extremely powerful, yet compact and easy-to-carry PC that is not only versatile, but durable enough to handle a highly mobile lifestyle.”

The 6th Gen Intel Core processors deliver significantly improved computing performance, enhanced graphics and better power efficiency than the previous generation, resulting in a long battery life rating.

The new processor offers improved performance for streaming video, offering life-like HD video conferencing using popular apps like Google Hangouts and Skype, while its increased graphics performance is ideal for Xbox gaming on Windows 10 with DirectX 12 support.

The Satellite Radius 12 weighs just 2.9 pounds with a slim 0.6-inch profile and includes a 360-degree precision hinge that offers smooth transitions between its five viewing modes – Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience. The laptop features a Brushed Metal Finish in Carbon Gray and includes an LED backlit keyboard.

The laptop’s  display is reinforced with all-new Gorilla Glass NBT, which offers 8x-10x higher scratch resistance than soda lime glass displays.

The Satellite Radius 12 will be available for purchase in the U.S. starting in the fourth quarter of 2015. This Toshiba laptop should end up as one of the hottest new Windows 10 2-in-1 laptops this Holiday Shopping season. Toshiba has not yet revealed the pricing, but might do so at the IFA 2015 later this week.
