During MWC 2016 we met the HP Elite x3, one of the latest high-end smartphones launched with Microsoft’s mobile platform, Windows 10 Mobile.
His proposal was quite interesting, delivering a business-friendly device that could function as a kind of 3-in-1 thanks to the Continuum feature, allowing for use as a desktop, laptop and of course smartphone.
Little did we know that the Elite X3, however, would not gain an official successor, seeing that the company decided to discontinue its work with Windows Phones – but still, a device that could be the potential successor of this model was even presented at Next year’s MWC without much fuss.
We’re talking about the HP Pro X3, which was leaked at the end of 2017, including a Snapdragon 820 chipset, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. Interestingly, the Elite X3 brought 1 GB more RAM and twice as much internal memory, not forgetting the OLED Quad HD panel.
Apparently, despite the name “Pro”, it was a less powerful version of the Elite X3, bringing a Full HD LCD panel and dispensing interesting extras such as Bang & Olufsen speakers.
Unfortunately, in the current situation in which Windows 10 Mobile finds itself, we will hardly see any release including the platform as the operating system.
