The two new models are designed for the home printing market, with use cases such as creative projects, hobbies and business documents.

The HP Envy 7640 e-All-in-One Printer is designed for households with busy print needs, with advanced mobile printing features such as in-OS printing from iOS and Android. The design has been updated from previous models and new features include a dedicated photo tray, 25-page automatic document feeder and automatic two-sided printing. It will be available Sept. 1, starting at US$199.

The HP Envy 5640 and 5660 e-All-in-One Printers offer print speeds up to 12 and 14 pages per minute, respectively, and include mobile print solutions. Both will be available Sept. 1, starting at US$129 and US$140. The 5660 will initially only be available in the US.
