HP appears to be still tidying up the Elite x3. The company's Windows 10 Mobile device that can simulate a desktop or laptop PC hasn't seen an update since late winter, but it looks like that is coming to an end.

Firmware 0002.0000.0037.0001 is now available, which is a jump from the previous 0002.0000.0026.0118 released in February.

Today's update is the sixth firmware update from HP since the Elite x3's release nearly one year ago.

Microsoft and HP had reportedly been working on improvements with the Elite x3 for more enterprise features that the company has requested.

Update July 21st 2017: HP has provided the following changelog:

  • Fix cam/scanner not working in Threema app (using a non-standard camera resolution of 864x400 which is not supported on Elite x3).
  • HP Device Hub update [v2.2.2.0] supporting Raven accessory upgrade and removed publisher cache dependency.

  • Update APN configurations for India carriers.
  • Enable call forwarding on ATT via win10 settings UI, or via **21*xxxxxxxxxx#
