Leaked! 6-inch HP Elite X3 phablet ahead of MWC launch

Hewlett-Packard's Elite X3, a 6-inch phablet with a 4,150 mAh battery, has been leaked ahead of its official launch at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Leaks suggest that Elite X3 will feature a 6-inch OLED display, a 4,150 mAh battery and the latest Windows 10 mobile OS.

As per Phone Arena, detailed specifications and images of Elite X3 are doing the rounds ahead of its official launch. With a pixel density of 490 ppi and a resolution of 1440 x 2560p, the OLED display is way ahead of Microsoft's Lumia 950 XL flagship phone.

The superiority doesn't end there though. HP Elite X3 is slated to pack a 4,150 mAh battery, which as of now is probably the most powerful among phablets and way ahead of the 3,420 mAh one in Sony Xperia Z5 Premium phablet.

The internal configuration of Elite X3 are impressive as well. The latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC with Adreno 530 GPU will work with a 4GB RAM to power the engines. The phablet will also come with internal storage options of 32GB and 64GB and there'll be a microSD slot as well that will support up to 200GB of additional storage.

Running the latest Windows 10 Mobile operating system, Elite X3 may also feature Windows Hello Iris scanner, a fingerprint sensor, a USB Type-C port, support for Qi wireless charging as well as two SIM slots. The phablet will have an IP67 dust-proof and water-proof certification and will hold impressive 16MP and 8MP cameras.

Phone Arena adds that the phone will weigh at 190g and will measure just 7.8mm in thickness, which means that even though the phablet is slightly on the heavier side, it will be easy to hold and work on.

Once the Elite X3 is launched officially at Mobile World Congress, we will bring you all the confirmed specifications as well as a comparative review of the phablet with other phablet giants like the iPhone 6s Plus, Xperia Z5 Premium, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus as well as Google's Nexus 6P to see if it really is as premium as the leaks make it sound.
