IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Toshiba’s Digital
Products Division
(DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information
Systems, Inc., today announced the availability of the Satellite Radius™
12, the world’s first 12.5-inch convertible Windows 10 laptop with a 4K

“Our design goal was to develop a highly compact, versatile PC that does
not compromise on performance or functionality to meet the needs of
today’s discerning content creator,” said Philip Osako, senior director
of product marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital
Products Division. “Toshiba has created the ultimate companion for the

Technicolor Certified 4K Display Enhanced by Corning Gorilla Glass NBT

The Satellite Radius 12 can be configured with a brilliant 12.5-inch
diagonal touchscreen display with a native 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160)
resolution that yields 352 pixels per inch, four times as many as a Full
HD display. The display is calibrated and certified by the color experts
Technicolor® and the device includes Chroma Tune™ for Toshiba software,
which allows the user to select the best color scheme for the content
they are using. Also available with a Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display
option, both models feature a high-brightness 350-nit screen for use
outdoors and IPS technology that provides wide viewing angles.

The laptop’s display is built with Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™, which
offers 8x-10x higher scratch resistance than soda lime glass displays,
plus reduced incidence of damage when inadvertently closing the display
on top of an object and a better ability to withstand the shock of
accidental bumps.

“Taking full advantage of touch notebook displays exposes the device to
potential abuses that come with gripping, swiping, wiping and tapping.
Today, a higher level of damage resistance is essential,” said John
Bayne, vice president and general manager, Gorilla Glass, Corning
Incorporated. “We developed Corning Gorilla Glass NBT to withstand the
rigorous lifestyle of the latest generation convertible touchscreen PC’s
and Toshiba’s Satellite Radius 12 is the perfect example.”

Small Laptop, Big Listening Experience

Continuing Toshiba’s tradition of offering high quality audio across its
line of laptops, the Satellite Radius 12 includes a custom-designed
adaptive audio system engineered by Harman Kardon® and Toshiba
specifically for convertible laptops. Embedded sub-miniature speakers
designed and tuned by the audio experts at Harman Kardon deliver
sophisticated, rich audio that changes automatically depending on the
laptop’s viewing mode so the sound quality and reach aligns with the
screen viewing position. Audio processing software by DTS® further tunes
the speakers for volume and quality.

“Convertible laptops offer a distinct challenge when trying to deliver
great audio in multiple modes as the speaker placement is not stationary
anymore,” said Michael Mauser, EVP and President of Lifestyle Division,
HARMAN International. “Through our long-standing collaboration with
Toshiba, we have designed an innovative adaptive audio solution that
achieves optimized high-quality audio no matter what position the laptop
is in so customers experience great sound from every angle.”

Facial Authentication with Windows Hello

The Satellite Radius 12 is one of the first PC’s to enable facial
authentication with Windows Hello. Powered by an on-board infrared
camera that provides a personal, convenient and password-free way to
instantaneously log into the device and quickly get to work or play.

The Satellite Radius 12 also accelerates the new features and
capabilities of Windows 10. For voice apps like Cortana and Skype, the
Satellite Radius 12 features multi-directional TruTalk™ microphones,
which offer clear voice detection, even in noisy environments and a
dedicated Cortana key for easily calling up the personal digital
assistant in Windows 10.

Maximum Mobile Performance, Maximum Connectivity

The laptops are powered by a 6th generation Intel Core processor, 8GB of
RAM2 and can be configured with a 256GB or 512GB solid state
drive3. In addition, the Satellite Radius 12 features
ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® plus a full range of ports
including HDMI® capable of 4K output, one reversible USB Type-C
connector that enables lightning fast data transfers over USB 3.1 and
