Windows 10 Mobile-powered Lumia series of smartphones didn’t make much of an impact, and Microsoft’s Surface Phone is still a matter of rumors. So the new Windows 10 Mobile-powered Elite X3 smartphone from HP has come under the spotlight.
The device was first introduced in February at the Mobile World Congress 2016, but there was no news about a commercial launch until now.
Slash Gear says HP’s Elite X3 is a “premium” Windows 10 Mobile smartphone. The phablet will reportedly feature the tech giant’s business-centric design. This handset will also likely come with a "Mobile Extender" dummy laptop, which will make use of the Continuum feature for phones to give seamless interface across devices.
The X3 is rumored to be a big device complete with a killer design, and the device will also come with a keyboard, much like a 2-in-1 smartphone and laptop, according to Slash Gear.
Win Future took a slew of photos of the HP Elite X3 displayed at the Computex 2016 event. They show a prominent circle at the back of the device, just below the camera and LED flash, believed to be a fingerprint scanner.
The HP Elite X3 will reportedly hit the store shelves in summer this year.
Windows fans can check out new videos teasing the powerful X3. In one of the videos, Executive VP Terry Myerson says Windows phones are not a priority for Microsoft this year.
