Many rumors have been circulating about the potential price of the HP Elite X3 terminal. While previous rumors suggested the device could be launched in September and would sport a $775 price, new information suggests the Elite X3 will most likely be released in August priced at £68/$905.
This time, we tend to believe the numbers mentioned above are real as the information was provided by the UK online retailer Clove. The information was sent by the retailer to a customer interested in purchasing the Elite X3:
You requested to be notified when the HP Elite X3 became available. Whilst the first stock has not yet launched. we are contacting you today to inform you that we now have a price and expected availability on this model. A premium Windows Phone, the Elite X3 will be coming with 64GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM and a Desk Dock included in the package for £566.67 plus VAT [£680 including VAT].
You can order now for dispatch in early August. We will contact you later this month/early August once a release date has been confirmed.
The same information is also available on Clove’s webpage. It’s surprising to see how easily the retailer revealed information the manufacturer has been so secretive about.
The August launch date for the Elite X3 doesn’t seem far-fetched as the device gained Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certification at the end of June, one of the last preparation stages before the official launch.
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.
