Announced back in February at MWC 2016, the HP Elite x3
has yet to hit the market, though we now know that it should be released in the coming months
. Before the device is launched, maybe you'd like to know its price: in the US, the Elite x3 will cost $799 unlocked, as currently indicated by HP's official website.
$799 is not cheap by any means, but we have to keep in mind that the HP Elite x3
is a very large, powerful smartphone with high-end features.
The Elite x3 impresses with its 6-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, and its dust- and water-resistant body (IP67-certified). The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor,
further featuring an iris scanner, dual front-facing speakers, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of expandable storage space, and a generous 4150 mAh battery with support for wireless charging
. On the back, the HP Elite x3 has a 16 MP camera, and a fingerprint scanner (though this wasn't included on the units demoed at MWC).
The HP Elite x3 is certainly an interesting option for customers who are planning to get a new Windows 10 smartphone. For a closer look at the device, check out our HP Elite x3 hands-on
: HP just removed the Elite x3 from its US website. Perhaps the company is not yet ready to launch it?
