The unlocked 5.96-inch smartphone is scheduled to start shipping from both sites on September 12 (via Neowin). The HP Elite x3 is currently supposed to begin shipping to some European countries sometime this coming week. HP's U.S. site won't begin taking orders for the phone until Sept. 5. Keep in mind that some features for the HP Elite x3, such as its fingerprint scanner and its support of HP Workspace for running legacy Windows apps, won't be available until sometime later this year via software updates.
