    Isn't that phone announced with fingerprint reader? This will be supported in Windows 10 Mobile as of Redstone. So releasing it before redstone is officially released wouldn't be smart.

    Well releasing stuff with the promise of a feature later isn't unheard of. I expect it to ship with Redstone though, perhaps before it launches on current devices.

    ESPECIALLY ENTERPRISE !!!

    Global smartphone sales figures published by Gartner show that Windows-based devices have a market share of just 0.7 percent. The latest figures cover the first quarter of 2016 and reveal that fewer than 2.4 million handsets with Microsoft's OS installed were sold.

    Microsoft's share of the mobile market plummets to below 1% as Android continues to rise
    So when will we see this released?

    Some Czech company said June. I don't see why they would release the phone before Redstone release. But really, I can't wait anymore. I need to take the next exit and go pee...Wait what are we talking about again?

    Chances are that the phone itself will be ready and beautiful in June. MSFT will probably launch Redstone some time in early 2017 just based on their history with updates and big things.

    Yes I exaggerate but I fear if HP waits for Redstone (which I am 100% convinced will get botched at release) their phone will be outdated on arrival.

    I have confirmation that this phone will in fact ship with a dumb fingerprint sensor that will eventually be enabled with an update in Fall 2016.
    Oh I am such a stalker :) scavenging the web for any info on my baby

    in fact, ask me any questions about the Elite X3 and I'll give you an answer. This phone might also come in a gold color and might release in June. I was told 2-4 weeks

    Lol I don't know about that but I do know the phone will release next month and due to that fact, the fingerprint scanner will not work until the anniversary update arrives. I'll just hold back and get it when it ships with the update

    This phone will also have a host of accessories like a passive stylus, gigabit Ethernet adapter, HDMI adapter and so on. The non removable battery is also looking to be quite the performer. Can't wait for reviews

    I would suspect that HP will release as soon as they can - like June - as their sales teams will need months of demos to overcome the "damage" that Microsoft has created and all of the negative Press about Windows Phone "is dead".

    Adjaero, I think the HUGE question for me and others is will the HP X3 Elite have all the active radios necessary to be activated on the Verizon Wireless network in the US? If so, do you know if this will be able to be activated immediately upon release on Verizon, or at some point further down the road?

    Any and all info is truly appreciated.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news man but it says no CDMA 1X and EVDO, No SVLTE, No TD-SCDMA.
    So am guessing it won't be coming to Verizon or Sprint, at least not on the initial release.

    This phone and its accessories are the only reason I am considering staying on Windows for mobile.

    My thinking is that I will either get the X3 'Laptop' + X3 phone or if HP sell separately X3 'Laptop' + Lumia 950 (now discounted and more manageable size) providing that the laptop extender is compatible with the 950s continuum. The Lumias processor and RAM is weaker than the X3 though, so I'll likely get the HP phone providing the Camera is good enough.

    My vision is that I will be able to remote desktop my full desktop Windows 10 pro PC to work from anywhere with these devices. This feels like the future. The only other concern I have is that maybe this would be slightly unhealthy for me in that work/leisure time will have zero boundary lol. Perhaps I'll get a iPod Touch or cheap Moto G to carry around for fun and missing apps. I don't know but this X3 certainly sounds like the future to me.

    Since the phone hasn't be formally released yet, isn't it possible that the radios are there - how do we know for sure as it would be ridiculous for HP to target Enterprise and NOT has ALL US carriers?

    I have read numerous technical posts that stated that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor "has ALL of the radios built-in" but must be enabled via firmware and certified to operate on Verizon's network.

    This was an extensive debate on the Lumia 950 XL discussion boards. The general conclusion was that the 950XL and 950 "both had all of the radios" but EITHER Microsoft - OR - Verizon or BOTH just couldn't come to terms and Microsoft chose NOT to independently "certify".

    Another perspective that was discussed was that when Verizon WON the 700 MHz "spectrum auction" that Verizon can NOT "block any certified phone"?

    This is a long running and deep discussion topic - and I doubt that HP "will cave to Verizon" and LOSE hundreds of millions of dollars of sales to large Enterprises.

    We shall soon see !!!

    Lol, I do hope it comes to verizon but I am certain it won't be coming at launch. Hopefully they get it to work with a firmware update!! I think the S820 does have all the radios so it is certainly possible!

    I say I am certain because it specifically states that on the document I have

    Assuming X3 "laptop" means the lap dock (that laptop powered by the phone), then yes it will be sold separately as an accessory. But I don't know if it would work with other phones or if it only works with the elite X3... HOPEFULLY it works with others like the 950/XL
    The package comes with the X3 phone, a 10W (5V/2A) charger and a USB-A to C cable.
    As for the camera, it's a 16.0MP f 2.0 one with low light capabilities (HAS PDAF and should have OIS as well) so it should be okay

    Initial speculation says that in addition to enterprise channels, the Elite X3 and accessories will be offered to private individuals via HP website and possibly at Microsoft Store online and retail centers.
