HP’s new monitor has a pop-up webcam and mediocre specs

HP has a new slate of monitors on the horizon, and the most exciting option might be the new “HP Z24m G3”.

Beyond its terrible name, the monitor has a cool pop-up webcam in the style of the OnePlus 7 Pro or Vivio NEXT. That said, the actual display it’s attached to is a little underwhelming.

It’s a relatively small 23-inch 2560 x 1440p panel with a pixel density of just 123 pixels per inch and a refresh rate of 90Hz. It should look pretty sharp on 23-inch screens, but in As someone who thinks 4K is the only way to go, I’m a little upset about that.

It doesn’t appear that this monitor is marketed to content creators, but rather to office workers. As well as being just 23 inches, the panel only covers 99% of the sRGB spectrum. However, it uses USB-C to connect to laptops and PCs, and a report of Ars-Technica says it can deliver 100 watts of power.

HP has also integrated an HDMI port (2.0) and a display port (1.4) and 4 USB type A sockets. There are also built-in stereo speakers.

The webcam on the top is 5 megapixels, and it also has technology that allows it to crop and stay locked on a user. This means that if you get up and walk around, the camera should follow you slightly. This is similar to video calling on a modern iPad with “Center stage”.
