If you have a look at the leaked photos embed below you can see that Hewlett Packard has done a pretty good job with the design of the phone. It looks sleek and well thought through but nor only the design is cool, also the inside of the phone does pretty much have everything a phone needs, except the size might be a matter of choice.
As Tech 2 reports, the flagship phone has a 5.95 inch QHD screen, so a big screen with a fabulous resolution. To get enough power with this phone HP has decided to go with a Snapdragon 820 Quad-Core processor which is working together with 4GB of RAM. Apart from that you will have 16GB of internal storage in order to have enough internal storage for all your music, photos and videos. In case you free storage is running low, there is the ability to expand the in-build storage with up to 200GB via MicroSD card and there is of course still the free OneDrive storage which Microsoft is still offering.
Now wer are coming to the true highlights of the phone, it will have an iris and a fingerprint scanner for the Windows Hello feature in order to make unlocking your phone faster. Furthermore it will have IP67 Water and Dust Resistance Certifications. It will be hard to break since it has STD810 military MIL-rating for 1-foot drop protection, Dual SIM support, and it is supporting Microsoft’s Continuum Mode which is available for mid and high end phones running Windows 10 Mobile.
If this is not enough for you the phone might be able to convince you with a thickness of only 7.8mm. Additionally you are getting a docking support on the back of the phone to support dockable credit cards and similar stuff. The USB 3.0 Type C connector ensures for high data transfer rates between the phone and your PC.
