This MWC has been currently a disappointment for Windows Phone fans till now, with no new phones being announced. While not announced yet, prying eyes have discovered an unannounced version of the HP Elite x3 in the HP booth.
As spotted at MWC 2017, the new version of Elite x3 has some noticeable differences from the original one. Firstly, it doesn’t have the Bang & Olufsen speaker grill at the bottom. Also the position of the front camera has been moved. The phone appears thinner, the bezels are thinner and there are strange looking marks on the top of the phone.
The phone appears super thin than its predecessor and also quite sleek. While no announcements were made till now, an HP spokesperson told.
As for the software, the phone runs Windows 10 Mobile and it will also utilise Windows 10’s Continuum that would allow it to connect to docks.
The phone is rumoured to have the Snapdragon 835 chipset and better specs than its previous iteration. HP is yet to reveal anything about this new device, so it may also be a concept or a tease for the hard-core Windows Phone fans.
The original HP Elite x3’s selling point is Microsoft’s Continuum, a Windows 10 mobile-exclusive feature that allows the device to serve as both PC and smartphone. The flagship handset from the American company features an elegant and metal-clad body that feels very premium.
The 5.96-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display panel is difficult to operate using one hand, though support for Microsoft Office apps and sharp colour make up for it. The other features include 4GB of RAM, 64GB of in-built storage, 4150mAh battery, support for microSD card, 15-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
