HP is offering £150 cashback on Elite x3 Windows 10 Mobile flagship and Desk Dock in the UK

Trying to keep up with HP UK's nonsensical pricing of its Elite x3 and Desk Dock bundle isn't easy - just look at the timeline below this article to get an idea of what we mean. After months of the bundle's price rising and falling, the company has now launched another deal to encourage people to buy its Windows 10 Mobile flagship.

If you buy an Elite x3 before July 31, 2017, HP will give you £150 cashback. Unlike its other recent £500 cashback deal - which is no longer available - this latest offer doesn't require you to trade in your existing handset.

However, as you might expect, there are terms and conditions to be aware of, and you'll also have to follow a strict procedure to claim your cashback after purchasing the device:

  • Wait 30 Days
    Keep hold of your purchase receipt/invoice and wait 30 days from your purchase date.
  • Claim
    Complete the online claim form within 30 - 60 days of your purchase date.

  • Reward
    Receive your cashback reward.

HP says that once you submit a claim, you'll receive notification of whether or not it's been 'validated' within three business days. If your claim is validated, you'll receive the cashback reward within 45 days after that.

Even if you do everything as quickly as possible, you won't receive the cashback for months after you actually purchase the device. But assuming that you do eventually get the £150 cashback, it will effectively reduce the cost of the Elite x3 and Desk Dock bundle from its current price of £673.20 to £523.20.

The Elite x3's key specs include:

  • 5.96-inch AMOLED with Quad HD (2560x1440px) resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass 4, and anti-reflective coating
  • Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB onboard storage (plus microSD card support)
  • 16MP rear camera

  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • NFC support
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • Optional dual-SIM support
  • USB 3.0 port with Type-C connector
  • Iris scanner
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • IP67 rating for dust- and water-resistance

  • 161.8 x 83.5 x 7.8mm; 194g
