HP's Elite X3 with Windows 10 a new flagship phone will be available next month


HP is just about ready to release its new high-end Windows phone to the world. The Elite x3 is now scheduled to "[roll] out across the globe at the end of the month," with shipping beginning August 29th in the US.

On its own, the phone will sell for $699; bundled with a charging dock that lets it connect to a monitor, the phone will sell for $799. HP is also planning to release what's essentially a laptop with (next to) nothing inside of it that can be wireless powered by the x3 — pricing and availability for that product is still forthcoming.

HP first announced the Elite X3 at the Mobile World Congress trade show in February.

It has a 5.96-inch AMOLED screen that can display images at a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, matching top smartphones like Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and LG’s G5. The rugged screen has Gorilla Glass 4 technology.

The device weighs 194 grams and is 7.87 millimeters thick. Other features include dual-SIM slots, a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, 64GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for expandable storage up to 2TB.

The Elite X3 has Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chip, which has a graphics processor capable of processing 4K video. The smartphone also has biometric authentication features like iris detection and a fingerprint reader.

The launch signals HP’s re-entry into the smartphone market, which hasn’t been kind to the company. HP’s last big play in smartphones came with the ill-fated 2010 acquisition of Palm, which it jettisoned in 2014.
