Speaking of price, HP?s Elite X3 will set the buyers back by a whopping $799 in the US and $999 CAD in Canada. However, for this price, you will also get a desk dock as part of the device bundle.

Moving on to key specs, the HP Elite X3 features a huge 6.0-inch tablet-like AMOLED display, complemented by a QHD resolution. Qualcomm?s Snapdragon 820 chipset powers the handset with a quad-core processor in tow.
This smartphone has 64GB of native storage space onboard and the internal components are backed by a good 4GB of RAM. HP has also added a microSD card slot to help facilitate expansion of up to a whopping 2TB.
Speaking of connectivity, the HP Elite X3 supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB Type-C port. Plus, there is a headphone jack as well. Usually, tech portals never mention if there is a headphone jack available or not, precisely because it used to be a norm. But now, this quotient has changed thanks to the jack-less Apple iPhone 7 and the Bluetooth Apple AirPods.
