alternative: top consumer level Android phone
LG's G5 is a radical reinvention of the flagship Android smartphone | The Verge

Both have something in common: hardware extensions.

HP device can attach to external monitor and keyboard to act as a desktop,
and there is even a laptop-like shell to hold the phone inside.

LG has extenders to work as a camera, a music device etc.

The "only" problem with this logic is the price. It is likely that for less money one can purchase
a decent phone and decent laptop, or a phone and a camera.
