The HP Elite x3 is a Windows based phone from HP designed for enterprise or corporate customers. We have already seen this type of smartphone from Nokia that comes with Microsoft Continuum support but this is the first one from HP. While we have already seen smartphones designed for “corporate customers”, this approach is slightly new. Here, we will discuss about the specs and HP Elite x3 release date UAE. However, let’s take a look at the HP Elite x3 Dubai price first which has not been officially announced yet. Judging from the specs, it’s easy to say that the smartphone will cost around 2800 to AED 3200 . Let’s see if this smartphone is worth trying or not.
If you are familiar with the designs of HTC phones with front facing speakers, you will find the HP Elite x3’s design to be similar. It’s quite big with a 5.96-inch screen showing 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution and 493ppi of pixel density. There are stereo speakers on the front part as mentioned earlier by Bang & Olufsen. The best part about this design is that it’s IP67 certified which means you get dust and water resistance. There is also MIL-STD 810G which makes the phone quite durable and shock resistant. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and its 7.8mm thickness makes it quite thin with a big battery like this. If it’s a big phone you want and don’t care about the operating system inside, you can check out the Huawei Mate 8 and LG V10 you can check out without waiting for the HP Elite x3 release date UAE.
One of the major features of the HP Elite x3 is its Microsoft Continuum support which allows users to use it as a desktop as well by connecting it to a “Display Dock”. You can connect mouse, keyboard and a monitor in order to use it as a basis PC and use all the Office apps found in Windows 10. HP is also making a Chromebook or laptop like dock specifically for this smartphone. The company is focusing on the security part as well and promoting it for corporate customers. The phone includes heavy security features like 256-bit key full disk encryption, dual biometrics, TPM 2.0, FIPS 140-2 cryptography and more. There is the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL offering the same Continuum feature for less price compared to the HP Elite x3 Dubai price.
Most of the latest high end flagship smartphones are packing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and so does the HP Elite x3. This quad-core processor comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB built in storage which can be expanded to up to 256GB using the dedicated microSD card slot. In the camera department, you get a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front one. There is an Iris scanner as well other than all the common connectivity options. The battery is also comparatively bigger, a 4150mAh one which is removable as well. If it’s just a phone with big battery you want, there is the Asus Zenfone Max (2016). It’s quite cheap compared to the HP Elite x3 Dubai price.
HP is yet to announce the release date for this highly anticipated Windows 10 phone. However, it’s expected to show up sometimes in July, 2016.
