Hewlett-Packard said it will ship the HP ElitePad 900 tablet for business and government clients in January. Reuters

HP has released the Elite x3 in the US and the UK but it has failed to meet the deadline to push Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary update (Redstone 1), thus disappointing the users. It is not sure when the company will bring the update, and reports have suggested that it may be delayed by a few weeks.

The HP Elite x3 was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016, Barcelona, in February, but was released into the market only in August, and that too only in the US and the UK so far. It comes running Microsoft's latest operating system Windows 10 Mobile.

The company had promised that Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary update would come to the Elite X3 in mid-September but it didn't happen, disappointing its users. Now, it has emerged that the device may get the software update after a few weeks. Testing of the software is currently in progress, and it will be rolled out once it is done.

The Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary update will bring new features like fingerprint reader support, Windows Information Protection, Microsoft Edge and Notification synchronisation.

The HP Elite x3 sports a 5.96-inch capacitive touchscreen with 1,440x2,560 pixels (494 ppi pixel density), measures 161.8x83.5x7.8 mm in dimension, and weighs 195 g. Under the hood, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, a Microsoft Windows 10 operating system, a 64GB internal memory expandable up to 256GB via microSD card, 4GB RAM, 16MP main camera with f/2.2 aperture, autofocus and LED flash, an 8MP secondary camera, and a 4,150mAh battery.
