As reported earlier, HP has unveiled its first Windows 10 powered smartphone, the HP Elite X3, at the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016, in Barcelona, Spain.
The Elite X3 features a 5.96-inch WQHD (1440×2560 pixels) AMLOD display with Gorilla Glass 4 and anti reflective coating. The smartphone is powered by a 2.15 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, which is paired with 4GB of RAM. The smartphone runs on Windows 10 operating system and is backed up by a powerful 4150 mAh non-removable battery.
The Elite X3 offers 64GB of internal storage, which can be further expandable up-to 2TB via micro SD card. The smartphone flaunts a 16-megapixel rear smapper with LED flash and an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. The smartphone has dual biometric with Iris Scanner, and a fingerprint scanner. Elite X3 also offers 256-bit key full disk encryption, secure boot, 128-bit key unified image encryption.
Besides, the smartphone offers Dual SIM, 4G LTE, WiFi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, and USB 3.0 Type-C (USB-C). The handset measures 83.5 x 7.8 x 161.8 mm and is IP67 water and dust resistant. The sensors include Accelerometer, Proxemity, Ambient light Sensor, Hall effect and Gyro sensor.
HP, meanwhile, has also unveiled two accessories – HP Desk Dock and HP Mobile Extender. With the Desk Dock, which is quite similar to Microsoft’s Continuum display dock, allows the Elite X3 to be used as a computer. Just put the X3 in the dock and then connect it to a larger monitor and enjoy your phone’s content on a big screen.
The Mobile Extender is even more useful. The Mobile Extender has a 12.5 inch full HD display, a keyboard and a 47 Whr battery. Ofcourse it has speakers and ports like a laptop. It is basically a laptop like device but it doesn’t have processor, RAM or storage. Instead it uses the Elite X3’s chipset to use.
HP though has not revealed the pricing and availability details of Elite X3.
