The HP Elite X3 was duly announced last year and is now available for purchase in several countries around the world, including the United States. However, it now appears that it is coming specifically to an American carrier. That’s because a new application for company certification makes clear the intention to launch the Elite X3 at Verizon.
The FCC certification request does not show the smartphone’s technical specifications, but it is already known that it has top-of-the-line configurations, including a Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4 GB of RAM. At Verizon, the Elite X3 is expected to be sold at a discount, especially made for those who purchase the device along with a plan.

- Four-core Kryo processor running at up to 2.2 GHz

So far the Elite X3 is not available in some countries where unfortunately it is believed that this will not change in the future. That way, the only way to get a unit is through import. Because of this, FCC certification may be good news, as it will increase their options. Nothing has been confirmed about the price that will be charged by the Elite X3 at the carrier and for this we must wait for the official statement from HP.
