Are these the final specs for the high-end HP Elite X3 Windows 10 Mobile phone?

A 16MP camera adorns the back of the phone, and an 8MP front-facing camera takes selfies. The specs call for both a fingerprint and iris scanner, and the IP67 certification means that the phone is protected from dust and water. In fact, the Elite X3 can be submerged in up to 3.2 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes, and escape unscathed. MIL-STD-810-G compliance means that the unit can survive a fall measuring 4-feet or less.
The HP Elite X3 will come with a USB Type-3 port and a 5 pin connector for battery cases or credit card readers. It offers Dual SIM capabilities and supports LTE Cat 6. And the phone will work with a laptop accessory called the Mobile Extender. The latter will come with a 12.5-inch screen containing the battery, and works over USB-C or Miracast. For those who want to use the handset to drive a desktop device, the Elite X3 will be sold bundled with the Desk Dock. The latter is equipped with USB-C, two full-size USB3 ports, DisplayPort and Ethernet connectors. There is also a Kensington security slot.
The HP Elite X3 is expected to be introduced at MWC, but won't launch until mid-to-late summer. Windows Phone fans in the market for a new phone might want to wait for the HP Elite X3 before shelling out cash for their next handset.

I'm sure the 1520 successor is the 950XL.

This will be a beast. Also, I read somewhere else, it will be able to run Windows Desktop apps in virtualized mode under continuum. Wow, I have always been saying that we need some stronger contenders to Android and iOS. We don't want 1 or 2 OS taking over the entire world.

This phone is clearly aimed at Lumia 1520 users. All HP needs to do next is to make a smaller 5.1 inch model of the phone with same screen resolution and other specs and they will have Lumia 930 users hop on their side too. That Bang and Olufsen sound system would surely pack quite a punch.
