According to a report in PocketNow, HP Elite X4 will be a mid-range device unlike the business-focused ‘3-in-1’ Elite X3.
Some other reports also suggest that the device despite its mediocre specifications will feature Continuum and the Desk Dock support.
HP introduced its Windows 10 Mobile-powered Elite X3 smartphone at MWC 2016 last year. Aimed at business users, the HP smartphone boasts of top-end specifications which comprise 64GB internal storage, microSD card support up to 2TB, 4GB RAM, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, Bang & Olufsen front speakers and dual-sim support. It has 5.96-inch QHD screen, Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4,150mAh battery.
HP positioned Elite X3 as the device that can replace laptop for enterprise users. Courtesy Windows 10 Mobile’s Continuum feature, users can port key apps to a connected screen and use the smartphone as a PC-on-the-go.
The company also offered a wireless dock as well as a Mobile Extender to further improve Continuum’s use. While the dock is similar to what Microsoft offers, the Mobile Extender is a little more interesting. It is essentially a laptop that requires the smartphone for power and consists of a 12.5-inch Full HD screen, keyboard, trackpad, 48Wh battery and USB Type C.
