A new wave of rumors have recently emerged around the awaited HP Elite X3, this time concerning the release date and the price tag. Little do we know for sure about the upcoming HP Elite X3, and the recent rumors only deepen the fog.

New information suggests that the HP Elite X3 phone could actually be launched in September and it will have a price tag of $775. The information was first published by the Italian site Plaffo, and apparently it was revealed by HP employees at an event in Milan, Italy.

Since HP hasn’t confirmed anything about Elite X3’s price tag, as always, this rumor should be taken with a grain of salt.

However, there are two elements that suggests the rumor could indeed be true. Microsoft has already confirmed August 2nd as the official launch date of its Windows 10 Anniversary Update. If HP rolls out the Elite X3 in September, it has enough time to install the latest Windows 10 Mobile OS on its terminals.

Secondly, the phone has recently gained Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certification, which means it edges closer to release. However, there will be differences in the phone’s Wi-Fi configurations as the Wi-Fi certification documents confirm two phone models will be available, one for the US and one for other countries.

Here’s a quick reminder of what we know for sure about HP Elite X3’s specs: it will sport a fingerprint sensor enhancing the security level of the terminal — an inspired choice since this device is positioned at business professionals. Also, the Elite X3 will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 processor with two 2.15GHz cores and two 1.6GHz cores for heavy-duty tasks.
