Home » Fingerprint support coming to to Windows 10 Mobile, making HP Elite x3 a great choice

The Anniversary Update that will be released this summer is expected to bring many changes and users are already testing out some of the features that will be introduced in Windows 10 Mobile. But this time we won’t talk about a new build that Microsoft has released for Insiders, as we’ll focus on fingerprint support, a feature that will surely be useful for owners of the HP Elite x3 smartphone.

Biometrics, a technology that Microsoft has included in 2012, is giving users easy access to systems, services and resources, and older Windows operating systems received Windows Biometric Framework, a set of services and interfaces that brought fingerprint biometric devices support using a set of components.

Then, in Windows 10 was introduced Windows Hello, a feature that offers users the possibility to authenticate on their devices based on their… presence. So, no one else but them was able to unlock a device, because only the owner could do that by scanning his/her face or fingerprint. Windows 10 Mobile received Hello facial authentication support last year, while fingerprint support is expected to be brought this summer, as Microsoft has confirmed this information at WinHEC conference.

An upcoming smartphone that will run on Windows 10 Mobile and which will use fingerprint biometrics as part of the Windows Hello sign-in feature is the HP Elite x3, which will have a giant 5.96-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels at 493ppi.

The device will be actually a flagship that will be powered by the next Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 quad core processor formed from two cores running at 2.15GHz and two cores running at 1.6GHz, it will support 4GB of RAM and the internal memory will be expandable from 64GB up to 200GB. The rear camera will have a resolution of 16MP, while the front camera will support half of its resolution.
