Elite x3’s characteristics are significantly more powerful than those of the premium smartphone Lumia 950 XL from Microsoft. The device is also equipped with 820 Snapdragon processor, four gigabytes of RAM and 64 gigabytes of internal file storage (expandable up to two terabytes using microSD). In addition, Elite x3 boasts a fingerprint scanner on the back panel, and the battery capacity of 4150 milliamp-hours supporting wireless charging.
