HP has already unveiled its first Windows 10 powered smartphone, the HP Elite x3. Now, the company has confirmed that the smartphone will be available for purchase from the company’s US website starting September 5. HP Elite x3 was first showcased in Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February.
“The US HP.com website is one of many channels we use for our commercial solutions,” the company said. “So the August 29th date is accurate. But for the US HP.com site, orders will begin on September 5.” So, on August 29, a $799 (INR 53,500) bundle containing the phone, a desk dock, and a handset will be launched. While, the HP Elite x3 comes with a price tag of $699 (INR 47,000).
Just to recall, the HP Elite x3 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. The device also features Microsoft’s Continuum that helps to transform the small-scale interface into an integrated Windows desktop environment. As per the reports of Engadget, once you connect a monitor, the Continuum feature will help to display content from your phone on the screen. Users can easily convert from a phablet screen to an external screen.
The device comes with dual-SIM slots, 802.11 ac WiFi, 4 GB LPDDR4 RAM, a micro-SD card slot and a 64 GB internal storage space. One of the most special features is a biometric authentication feature like fingerprint reader and iris detection on x3. You can quickly turn the Elite X3 into a laptop as it can be hooked up to your smartphone through a USB Type-C cable or wirelessly.
