Finalized HP Elite x3 has rear-mounted fingerprint sensor

As Windows 10 Mobile continues to shrink back to strictly business, please, it’s been scary to watch Microsoft shed its mobile unit. And with the rumored pain to come, the wincing is near constant these days.

But Microsoft definitely has takers for its hardware, mobile and all. HP has taken up the Windows 10 Mobile banner with its office-targeted, spec-packed Elite x3. One of the features that’s supposed to be on the device is a fingerprint sensor — we didn’t see one in our hands-on time at MWC this year.

Well, the good folks at WinFuture were able to get their eyes — though not their hands — on what the company’s calling a finalized unit. And yes, we do see a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. That surface on the back has also been revised to a more matte one.

No specifics yet on ETA or pricing, though we have heard that HP has also opened up the potential sales targets to individuals, too, and not just enterprise. Windows Hello fingerprint sensing is also up in the air.
