HP Elite x3 price allegedly set for about $770 in Europe, release date rumored for September
According to a new rumor, the HP Elite x3 will be priced at €699 when it launches in Europe this upcoming September.

The upcoming HP Elite x3 is as interesting as it is elusive. Officially introduced all the way back in February at MWC 2016 in Barcelona as a premium Windows 10 Mobile smartphone that can morph between a smartphone, a laptop, and a desktop PC with the help of a few accessories, the HP Elite X3 has yet to become available for purchase. 

The last time we've heard about the HP Elite X3, the phone was getting its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth certifications, which is usually a sign that the actual release date isn't far off.

The source of this rumor claims that HP will launch the Elite x3 in September at a price of €699. At the current exchange rates, that's equivalent to a price of $770, although smartphone prices usually vary consistently by region. 

The Windows 10 Mobile powerhouse will come with extreme hardware specifications such as a 6-inch display running a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4GB of RAM, and a large 4,150mAh battery. 

Other notable specs for the HP Elite x3 include 64GB of expandable internal storage, wireless charging, Microsoft Continuum support, and dual front-facing speakers. For more details on the enterprise-centric handset check out these HP Elite x3 videos.


Although the high-end components and the premium build quality of the HP Elite x3 are to be appreciated, it remains to be seen if the Windows 10 Mobile operating system will strike a chord with enterprises, which are HP's main target with the Elite x3.
