We first saw HP’s powerful Windows 10 Mobile handset at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year in February. The company didn’t confirm back then when this handset is going to be released. Recently the price for the HP Elite x3 was spotted on the company’s website but it was later pulled. HP has now confirmed how much this Windows 10 Mobile powerhouse is going to cost and when it’s going to start shipping in the United States.
HP has confirmed that it’s going to release the Elite x3 across the globe later this month while customers in the United States will start to receive their shipments on August 29th.
The HP Elite x3 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 processor with 4GB RAM, 64GB expandable storage, and it also features a fingerprint sensor, IP67 water and dust resistance certification as well as a 6 inch Quad HD AMOLED display.
Customers can either purchase the handset itself for $699 or go with a bundle that costs $799. This bundle includes a charging dock which can also be used to connect the handset to a monitor for use as a desktop PC.
HP has also revealed plans for a laptop that has no internal hardware of its own and is rather powered wirelessly by the Elite x3, though the company is yet to confirm when this product will arrive and how much it will cost.
