HP's new Elite x3 smartphone can turn into a laptop, desktop PC

PanARMENIAN.Net - HP on Sunday, February 21 unveiled the Elite x3, a high-end smartphone running Windows 10 that's designed to be your one and only device — smartphone, laptop, and desktop PC, the Verge said.

With a 6-inch, quad HD display, HP is proudly defining the Elite x3 as a phablet, and a powerful one at that. It has a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded to 2TB using microSD. There's an iris scanner on the front and a fingerprint sensor on the back, right beneath its camera (although a scanner wasn't present on the pre-release model that HP showed us during a briefing). It also has a large 4,150mAh battery that supports wireless charging.

HP needs people to use Elite x3 as more than a phone. The Elite x3 is designed around Continuum, a Windows 10 feature that lets Windows smartphones plug into a larger display and function almost like a full Windows computer with mouse and keyboard. It's the kind of potentially killer feature that could make someone want a Windows phone over an iPhone.
