Qualcomm introduces Always Connected PC

The best Android processors are coming to Windows PCs, and it could change laptops forever

HP and ASUS have reportedly worked with Microsoft very closely to make this a reality.

It's just the beginning here at the Snapdragon Tech Summit, so stay tuned for more announcements from Qualcomm as the week progresses! (Credit: Qualcomm/YouTube) While not revealing every detail about the Snapdragon 845, Qualcomm said the newest mobile processing platform would focus on six features: cameras that could take 360-degree photos, VR and AR immersion, artificial intelligence, security, Gigabit LTE and, of course, more power.

At just 1.54 pounds, the HP Envy x2, which is the company's latest Surface clone, is lighter even than the 12-inch MacBook (2016), which weighs a mere 2 pounds.

The powerful processor will likely also drive always connected Windows 10 PCs and will hopefully offer better benchmarks that those leaked for existing devices so far.


Built upon the Snapdragon 835 SoC, the Envy x2 will be available in configurations featuring up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. The tablet PC comes with cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity onboard. We're talking 20 hours of battery life, rather than 8; devices that turn on as fast as an iPad, rather than taking 20 seconds to resume from sleep; and always-on LTE connectivity that doesn't drain your battery life.

HP didn't provide any pricing information for the Envy x2, but it did say that customers can expect to buy it next spring.

The HP Envy x2 is otherwise as well specced as any Intel-powered Windows machine with as little as 4GB of memory and a 64GB SSD for $599 (about £450, AU$790). Interestingly, the Asus NovaGo will run Windows 10 S, but customers will be able to upgrade for free to Windows 10 Pro through September 2018. Whether these devices live up to their expectations or not we are sure of one thing that it will create a homogeneous opportunity to take this revolution forward.
