Home » HP Elite x3 to receive Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update in a few weeks

HP fans recently noticed that a FAQ page on HP’s support website has been updated with some new information. It appears that the HP Elite x3 phone will receive the Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update in a few weeks, instead of the initial date that was announced, September 13.

HP confirmed that it’s currently working on some tests for the update, to detect and fix any possible stability and performance issues.

However, if you’re anxious to get your hands on the Anniversary Update sooner than the rest of the world, you can do that via the Release Preview ring. The Windows Insider Program lets you install the update and test it out if you want.

The HP Elite x3 smartphone was released on the US market in the beginning of this month, in the company’s own store and also on the Microsoft Store website. It was such a success that currently both websites are out of stock, so if you want to buy one right now, you should wait a little more.

The new smartphone is not aimed at consumers who are looking for the latest smartphone technology. It is in fact a business to business device which is sold along the HP servers, PCs, printers, services and others. Of course, no one will tell you not to pay $700 for the phone because it’s a B2B device, but they are not trying to match the offers of LG, Samsung or other similar companies.

If HP would have wanted to release just another smartphone on the market, it could have simply went for Android as an OS and that was it. But the fact that it chooses to use Windows 10 instead, shows that the company wants to offer something new to the business segment of the market.
