Back in December, a Windows 10 Mobile gadget was spotted on a benchmarking site, identifying itself as the ‘HP Falcon’. Some extra details emerged later that month, recommending that HP would be focusing on the gadget at business purchasers – much the same as VAIO’s new Windows 10 Mobile handset, the Phone Biz, which was unveiled a week ago.
What’s more, thanks to serial leakster Evan Blass (better known as @evleaks), it appears that the future identity of the gadget has been uncovered as well.
Windows 10 Mobile-powered HP Falcon is coming to market as the HP Elite x3.

According to Evan, the handset – which has so far just been known by its “Falcon” development codename – will go on sale as the HP Elite x3. That certainly lines up with the thought that it will be gone for business purchasers; HP uses Elite marking for its business-focused gadgets, which includes the Elite x2 tablet.
Another HP gadget that shares that branding is the organization’s new EliteBook Folio, which it unveiled a month ago; notably, a press picture of the new notebook included a unidentified Windows 10 Mobile handset, which might well have been a teaser for the Elite x3 telephone.
The Elite x3 is expected to have a 5.8-inch display with Quad HD resolution, and the most recent Snapdragon 820 processor, along with support for the PC-like as Continuum feature in Windows 10 Mobile.
