HP’s Elite X3 smartphone has garnered a fair amount of press, being the premier Windows 10 Mobile device released in the last few months. Indeed, the device is arguably carrying the torch for the platform, representing the one truly innovative product to represent Windows 10 Mobile until Microsoft decides to release its Surface Phone sometime in 2017.

Apparently, Microsoft has decided to formally recognize the Elite X3’s existence by adding the device to the Windows Device Recovery Tool. According to Windows Central, version 3.10.24401 of the principal tool for updating a Windows 10 Mobile device to its most recent available version of the operating system can now be used to return an HP Elite X3 to its pristine state.
