HP’s “consumer” Elite x3 counterpart might not be as beefy

If you’ve had your hopes up that HP’s next Windows 10 Mobile will be as good as the Elite x3 though not as pricey, it’s perhaps time to temper those expectations. Don’t worry, it might not be as bad as the Moly X1. According to sources, HP’s consumer-level smartphone will instead be a mid-range device, sporting a processor from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 series. While not as powerful as an 820, it will still be enough to comply with Continuum’s requirements.

Sources: Microsoft and HP will launch consumer Windows 10 phone in 2017

Microsoft and HP are working on a consumer-tier Windows 10 Mobile phone, according to sources.

Here’s how the HP Elite x3 becomes a true PC, with a catch

Here’s how the HP Elite x3 becomes a true PC, with a catch

HP’s Elite x3 giant of a phablet is probably what Microsoft should have launched as the Windows 10 Mobile champion. Aside from having the best specs in any Windows 10 smartphone, it also embodies Microsoft’s dream of seamless computing anywhere and everywhere. While that is already possible via Windows Continuum and something like a Lap Dock, HP adds one more interesting piece to the puzzle: the HP Workspace service that lets you “run” full Windows desktops apps on the Elite x3.

HP Elite x3 “Lap Dock” is finally on pre-order

The HP Elite x3 is undoubtedly the highest end Windows 10 Mobile smartphone so far. But as interesting as the giant smartphone is by itself, it is actually made more interesting thanks to one of its accessories. Not the desktop dock, which Microsoft and even Acer have.
