New Lap Dock for the HP Elite x3 sequel made an unassuming appearance at MWC

New Lap Dock for the HP Elite x3 sequel made an unassuming appearance at MWC
As we told you the other day, the most powerful Windows 10 Mobile handset of all time, the HP Elite x3, could be getting replaced real soon. At MWC, HP had the successor to the Elite x3 enclosed inside a glass container. The new phone looks similar to the Elite x3, although it has thinner bezels and the front-facing camera has been moved to the opposite side. It also appears to no longer carry the speaker at the bottom of the handset.

Also making an appearance at MWC was a new Lap Dock meant for the next version of the Elite x3 (Elite x4?) that seemed to get lost in the excitement of the next phone's appearance. With the Lap Dock, the HP Elite x3 can drive a laptop computer. The new Lap Dock will sport a larger 13-inch to 14-inch screen, up from 12.5-inches on the current model. And instead of coming with only USB-Type C ports, it will include some USB-A ports instead to improve compatibility.

The new Lap Dock is going to be cheaper than the current version of the device. Part of that price cut is due to the fact that the new dock will not be equipped with a touchscreen.

While there is no information about the launch of the HP Elite x3 sequel and the launch of the new Lap Dock, both are expected to be released before the end of this year. The appearance by both at MWC would seem to indicate that the new models will be coming as soon as mid-year.
