If you plan on purchasing the HP Elite x3, you’ll have to wait a few weeks more. Due to a technical issue with a camera driver, eager buyers will have to wait until mid-October to get their hands on the anticipated smartphone.

The biggest Windows 10 Mobile star of this year, the HP Elite x3, was originally set for a September 26th release, but with this delay, we should see the phone hit store shelves a few weeks later. The device was already in the US, but Microsoft is forced to wait until October 11 to make the HP Elite x3 available to customers.

This was confirmed by a potential buyer:

“Just received confirmation at a Virginia Microsoft store that the Elite x3 cannot be sold until October 11th. They are waiting for updates to fix camera issues, etc. They have them in stock but cannot sell them, unfortunately,” said one customer to Windows Central.

Apparently, Microsoft and HP are working together on a new software update which will reportedly come out on October 11. Therefore, the HP Elite x3 cannot be released until this date. This isn’t the only negative news about the Elite x3: HP recently stated the Anniversary Update for this device was delayed for a few weeks.

However, Microsoft’s online store is still accepting pre-orders for the HP Elite x3, listing the release date as September 26. So, if these reports and claims are true, those who pre-ordered this device will probably have to wait until mid-October to receive it.
