The rumored 5.8-inch business smartphone could come with its own docking port and removable battery.

Tech site Dr. Windows claims to have sources close to HP who say that the manufacturer is indeed working on a Windows flagship smartphone. Such a device was recently spotted on GFXBench, which may suggest that the device could be revealed as early as CES 2016 next month or MWC 2016 in February. Nonetheless, HP will still need to weigh the economic benefits of the full launch and marketing plans for the device before officially revealing the smartphone, according to the source.

The GFXBench database has already revealed a few key specifications on the supposed HP Falcon smartphone:

  • 5.8-inch 2560 x 1440 resolution display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC
  • At least 3 GB RAM
  • 32/64 GB eMMC
  • 20 MP rear + 12 MP front cameras

Dr. Windows is also speculating that HP may even offer a dedicated docking station for the Falcon and that a replaceable battery would be likely since the smartphone will be marketed towards business users.

We expect to hear more from HP in the coming weeks about its notebook and tablet plans even if the Falcon rumors prove to be hot air.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
