You’ll be Paying More For HP Elite X3 Than You’re Paying For An Unlocked iPhone 6s In The US
HP Elite X3 is possibly going to be the first Snapdragon 820 powered Windows 10 Mobile device out there, and the rest of its hardware do warrant its high price tag, but would anyone actually be enticed to start using a device running Microsoft’s mobile version of the OS on it? Well, turns out that the latest price tag details of HP Elite X3 in the United States have been leaked, and it is not for those looking to purchase a price/performance handset.
HP Elite X3 Sports A Huge Price Tag Of $799 – The Accessories Are Not Going To Be Included In This Price
Information taken from Nokiapoweruser shows a screenshot shows that the price tag of HP Elite X3 is listed as $799, which is a bit on the high side, and the disappointing thing is that the company is that it is not going to provide an accessory along with it, which ranges from the Continuum dock and the Mobile Extender. This is honestly frustrating for the user, since not all of us have the capacity to sell out $1000+ in a single go. If HP honestly wants to get the sales meter rising, then bundling accessories in the first act it is going to have to take win the hearts of consumers.
Irrespective of that, the handset is incorporated with an impressive array of hardware and you’ll be pleased to know that 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.
