HP, Asus announce first Windows 10 ARM PCs

06 December 2017

Along with a range of 'Always Connected PCs, ' Qualcomm also announced its next-gen Snapdragon 845 SoC. Xiaomi also confirmed that the company's next flagship smartphone will be powered by the new mobile platform. Luckily the Snapdragon Summit in Hawaii has brought good news.

HP didn't provide any pricing information for the Envy x2, but it did say that customers can expect to buy it next spring. As with the outgoing Snapdragon 835, Samsung is the fabrication partner, and the 845 will be built on the company's 10nm process.

One edge features a USB-C port to connect peripherals or the charging cable, while the other edge hosts a volume rocker and a headphone jack. So on the outside it doesn't really look any different to other 2-in-1s that run Intel or any other chip. Qualcomm boasts battery life of up to 25 hours, plus instant power on and performance that is on par with an Intel computer. It features a 20-hour active battery life and 4G LTE2 connectivity.

The HP Envy x2 is more akin to a Microsoft Surface, with the ability to be used as a tablet, placed upright with a hinged stand on the back of the device, or connected to a keyboard mat. Impressive stuff, especially when it comes to the 22 hours of playback on a notebook. This is a huge advantage for mobile users, who can simply add these devices to their cellular accounts and receive internet connectivity anywhere in the world, allowing them to simply turn on their device and start working instead of hunting for Wi-Fi hotspots. Asus has already revealed that prices will start at just $599 United States for the base model, which includes 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage.

Having a Snapdragon 835 also meant a promise for thinner designs and the Envy x2, made from machined aluminium is just 6.9mm and 680g.

Microsoft today unveiled its first line of "Always Connected" PCs, a new generation of computers with built-in LTE connectivity and extra-long battery life.

The Envy x2 has a 12in screen with a 1920x1280 resolution and supports stylus input.
