HP’s Elite X3 Windows 10 phone is one the more anticipated smartphones of the summer and for good reason. This phone is a powerhouse, bringing impressive specs to the table despite that it’s HP’s first Windows 10 mobile device.

The Elite X3 will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 processor which sports two 2.15GHz cores and two 1.6GHz cores to help to facilitate heavy-duty tasks. The phone will also be extremely fast thanks to its 4GB of RAM while its internal memory can be expanded up to 200GB, perfect for storing pictures taken with its 16MP rear camera.

One feature that was expected to be incorporated on Elite X3 was a fingerprint sensor but up until recently, the presence of such a feature was only a rumor. Now, clear evidence confirms this phone is indeed equipped with a fingerprint sensor, enhancing the security level of the terminal — an inspired choice since this device is positioned at business professionals.

The device brings a new level of business mobility thanks to HP’s Workspace feature, letting user run their most frequently-used Windows and corporate applications virtually.

HP presented an Elite X3 prototype at COMPUTEX 2016 with a fingerprint sensor, ending the debate around this feature. The manufacturer also assures this terminal is secure at every level:

Secure at every step.

The Elite X3 is expected in June, one month before the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The phone will have a price of $599, which is quite affordable if we think of Microsoft’s Lumia 950 $549 pirce at the Microsoft Store.
