After the successful launch of the Window 10 Mobile-powered Elite X3 at the MWC 2016, reports according to PocketNow show that the, Palo Alto-based tech firm, Hewlett-Packard Inc. might unveil Elite X3 successor the “Elite X4” at the upcoming Mobile World Congress, suggesting that the Phablet will be a mid-range device with average specs and features unlike the business-focused 3-in-1 Elite X3.

Another report by PhoneArena reveals that despite being a mid-rang smartphone, it will still feature Continuum and the Desk Dock support.

The HP Elite X3 spots among the most powerful hardware on a smartphone, with highlighting features like 5.96-inch QHD screen, Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4150mAh battery, 64GB internal storage, an expandable microSD card support up to 2TB, 4GB RAM, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, Bang & Olufsen front speakers and dual-sim support.

With Continuum on-board, Elite X3 is being positioned as a device that will replace the laptop of enterprise users. Windows 10 Mobile’s Continuum feature allows users to port key apps to a connected screen in order to use the smartphone as a PC-on-the-go.

The company also offered a wireless dock as well as a Mobile Extender to make use of Continuum. 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.

We shall let you know about the specs for the Elite X4 ASAP!!
