HP Elite X3

The Elite x3, HP’s massive new Windows 10-powered smartphone, is now available to pre-order in Canada via the online Microsoft Store.

Priced at $1000 outright, the Elite x3 comes with a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable internal storage, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, 4,150 mAh battery, 16-megapixel rear-facing camera and a massive 5.96-inch WQHD display.

Pre-orders come with the HP Elite x3 desk dock, which allows anyone who buys this phone to use it, with the help of Windows 10’s Continuum Feature, as a full-fledged desktop PC — provided they have access to a monitor and mouse and keyboard.

Announced back at Mobile World Congress, the Elite x3 was originally set to come out in Canada this week, but, at least for people who order it via the Microsoft Store, the phone is now set to come out on September 12.
