HP Elite x3 (formerly HP Falcon) to be a smart-looking Windows 10 smartphone?
It's been ages since HP last released a Windows-based smartphone (it looks like the Windows Mobile 6.5-powered iPAQ Glisten from 2009 is the company's last such device), so we're somewhat intrigued by the fact that a new HP-made Windows handset might be coming soon. The handset in question is the HP Falcon (of which we first heard of in December), though it won't have this name when it launches.

According to Evan Blass (@evleaks), the Falcon will be released as the HP Elite x3. As previously reported, the device will run Windows 10, and should offer high-end features, including a pretty large 5.8-inch Quad HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, and 64 GB of storage space. A 20 MP camera should be found on the back, while the front-facing camera might be a 12 MP, or 13 MP one.

Evan Blass notes that the HP Elite x3 "looks pretty smart - except, maybe, for the odd pattern of speaker grille holes." We're not sure what to make out of this, but we're hoping to see a great design anyway. For the record, HP is already selling an Elite x2 (pictured below): a sleek-looking, shock-resistant 2-in1 Windows tablet made out of a magnesium alloy. Will the Elite x3 smartphone have similar physical characteristics? Only time will tell.

While there's no word on when the HP Elite x3 will be announced, we might see it later this month at MWC 2016. Stay tuned!
