evLeaks: HP to release the HP Falcon as the HP Elite x3 (updated)

There has been a lot of activity yesterday in the blogosphere after Microsoft showed off a new Windows 10 Mobile handset to a select group of bloggers.

Now the secret has been revealed by evLeaks, who confirmed the event was for the HP Falcon.

The handset has been spotted previously by German publication Dr Windows who confirmed the device from their own sources, and that handset the will likely be announced at Mobile World Congress in February 2016.

Leaked benchmarks have revealed that the handset is powered by the new Qualcomm SnapDragon 820 processor and Adreno 530 GPU, and is supposed to have a 5.8 inch 2560×1440 screen, at least 2 GB RAM, 20 megapixel rear and 12 megapixel front facing camera and probably 64 GB of storage.

While evLeaks did not release a picture he noted the device looked “pretty smart” except for an “odd pattern of speaker grille holes“.

Of note is that the HP Elite X2 is a Surface Pro-like Windows 10 tablet with keyboard and fingerprint reader, and we hope HP’s new Windows 10 Phone will share some of its properties.


Also of note is that is not evLeak’s “mindblowing” news, which in itself is interesting.

With specs that exceed Microsoft’s own top-line flagship, the Lumia 950 XL, and with the handset likely cheaper, will any of our readers pick up this device instead? Let us know below.
