Design & display

Unlock the phone with your eyes

Using the on-board iris scanner, embedded inside the front-facing camera, you can unlock the smartphone by looking at it. Simply line your eyes up with the camera, and it will read your unique biometric information. 

Top quality display

The HP Elite x3 is fronted by a powerful display, with Quad HD resolution. And all that quality is spread out over 5.96-inches, meaning you’re guaranteed a pin sharp visual experience. 


Perfect photos

Capture the moment with the 16MP camera, built with advanced sensors and optical image stabilisation to keep any blur at bay. 

Bright and clear conference calls

The 8MP front-facing lens means you’ll not only be able to take top-notch selfies, but also enjoy crystal clear conference calls using Skype. 

Under the Hood


Microsoft’s virtual assistant, Cortana, is built into the phone, on hand to offer help whenever you need it. Ask it to diarise important meeting, search the web, and even remind you to pick up flowers the next time you’re near a florist. 

Plenty of power

You won’t be slowed down even if you’re using several powerful computing apps at once, with thanks to the quad-core processor and 4GB RAM. 

Desk Dock

The included Desk Dock lets you use Microsoft’s Continuum programme. The Continuum system means you can not only upscale what you’re doing to big screen, but also have an actual desktop experience, powered by the phone.

Simply connect using the Display Dock and transform your mobile into a full Windows computer.
