The HP Elite x3 may soon have some awesome augmented reality capabilities similar to the Lenovo PHAB2 Pro and just like how the Microsoft HoloLens does.

PCWorld talked with HP’s mobility head Michael Park about how some Universal Windows Apps made for the HoloLens could be usable on the new phone some time down the developmental roadmap.

While the Elite x3 has some intense silicon behind it, it does not have special camera and depth-sensing hardware built onto it. In all likelihood, we’ll have to see a head- or arm-mounted peripheral come out — and if that’s the case, we’ll have to see whether it will be compatible with other Windows 10 Mobile phones.

Whatever the case, HP is committed for the time being to serving mobility products to its enterprise customers.

“There are a lot of people in the commercial domain who are not using Pokemon Go,” Park said. “We’re not trying to hit the volumes and scales of Android. We’re going after IT shops.”

Whether it can and will with a shrinking mobile platform may depend more on what Microsoft is willing to do with it than HP.
