HP Elite x3 at a Glance

HP’s newest piece of Tech, the Elite x3, is a near all-purpose mobile device perfect for any business seeking to make their workplace more efficient. The device serves as both a smartphone and a fully functioning PC that can be docked onto other devices or displays. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC processor, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and 64 GB drive (which is expandable up to 2TB). It also features dual-SIM functionality, the ability to run two separate work and personal profiles, making it a very convenient device for you on-the-go professionals. It also sports some very impressive security capabilities, featuring not only fingerprint recognition but also a retina scanner and security measures built into the operating system.

Possibly the most impressive aspect of the phone is its seamless workstation to mobile transitioning. The x3 can re-format PC applications to be compatible with the mobile interface, allowing users to continue important work in or out of the office.

The Phone can be connected to a device called a Lapdock, which is essentially a laptop display with a keyboard and battery but without any of the processing power of a regular laptop. The phone can run the OS on the system either through a wired or wireless connection. It has three USB Type-C ports for connecting to the phone, charger and other accessories, along with a Micro-HDMI port for a projector. It offers approximately 14 to 16 hours of battery or 12 hours if charging the phone during usage.

The name of the game with this device is versatility. HP is attempting to provide a completely integrated workspace with all the advantages of doing work while away from the office.
