HP Elite X3 Finally Gets A Price Tag And A Release Date – Much Awaited Windows 10 Mobile Powerhouse
After enduring months after months, HP Elite X3 is finally going to be made official, and if you have the money to purchase it and you don’t have an issue sticking with Windows 10 Mobile, then the upcoming flagship smartphone is definitely yours for the taking.
HP Elite X3 Is Going To Be Announced During The Month Of September, But Its Price Tag Is Only Slightly Lower Than $800
According to a Chinese website, HP Elite X3’s announcement is going to be held in Italy during the month of September, and for consumers who are stuck with financial constraints, the device’s asking price is definitely going to discourage you. For 699 Euros, or $770, the flagship is definitely going to be a hurdle for most users wanting to use Windows 10 Mobile on an expensive smartphone, and we wonder if HP would have received a more positive response had its offering been cheaper than the rest of the competition.
In terms of hardware specifications, HP Elite X3 features a Snapdragon 820 SoC with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. While this configuration is quite common on Android handsets, it is possibly the first time that we have seen such a configuration adopted on a Windows 10 Mobile phone. The screen size of HP Elite X3 is a massive 5.96-inch QHD display, and that screen size alone has allowed HP to incorporate a 4,150mAh cell inside. HP has not specified the amount of talk time that will be available to the user with that massive battery capacity, but we expect that it will effortlessly last an entire day.
Despite featuring 64GB of internal storage, HP Elite X3 provides the user with massive amounts of storage expansion options with a MicroSD card slot that can support cards up to 2TB. A 16MP rear shooter will ensure footage and image capture will be smooth as butter and since this is a flagship offering, we expect that that it will also be able to capture 4K videos very easily. At first we were disappointed to not being able to figure out the price of the smartphone, but it looks like the handset is finally going up for sale, albeit at an expensive price tag.
