Product of the week: HP's Elite x3 Smartphone
February 29, 2016, 4:21 pm

The Elite x3, the new Windows 10-based smartphone from HP is being pitched by the company as the “one device that is every device.” In essence, they mean it is built to take advantage of Continuum, the feature that turns Windows 10 phones into lightweight desktop operating systems. Continuum allows the phone to connect to an external display and act more like a traditional Windows 10 computer.

Two accessories (the HP Desk Dock and HP Mobile Extender) are what make this possible. The dock, which includes ports for HDMI, USB and Ethernet, gives users the ability to place the phone in the dock and connect to a large display as well as a mouse and keyboard. If you prefer a more portable experience, you can also connect to the Mobile Extender, which is essentially a laptop without any internal components.

The phone sports high-end specifications, including the brand new Snapdragon 820 processor, and a 5.95-inch quad HD display that offers 2560x1440 AMOLED (538 PPI). It has 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage that can be further enlarged with a microSD slot that provides up to 2TB of storage. The rear camera is 16 megapixels and the front gets an 8 megapixel shooter. The 4,150 mAh battery offers sufficient usage time and the phone, whichh weighs 195g and has a dimension of162 x 84 x 8mm, is expected to arrive this summer in more than 30 countries.
