Qualcomm make their move on Intel with Snapdragon on Windows

Qualcomm make their move on Intel with Snapdragon on Windows

Until then, it's worth mentioning that, once again, the Snapdragon 845 is the result of the collaboration between Qualcomm and Samsung. The main USP of the device is the promise of all-day computing.

Today marks the beginning of a new era of personal computing and ASUS is proud to be paving the way with Qualcomm Technologies and other companies to develop this new landscape for "Always Connected" Windows on Snapdragon PCs. Asus NovaGo also features Windows 10 features such as Windows Ink with stylus support, Microsoft's virtual assistant Cortana, and Windows Hello for biometric authentication. Qualcomm and Microsoft together hope that this family of thin, light, Windows 10 device will reverse those fortunes. The machine will come with Windows 10 S pre-installed and will only run applications from Microsoft's Windows Store.

The Asus NovaGo is expected to be available from early next year. The Envy X2 is very similar to numerous Surface Pro types of computers that already exist, while the NovaGo feels just like any other budget to midrange laptop.

Veteran actor Shashi Kapoor no more
Kapoor's death has been widely condoled in India. "Condolences to his family", said Kovind in a message on Twitter. Shashi started his film journey as a child artist and, in his lifetime, appeared in over 150 films.

The combination of Windows 10 and Snapdragon aims to offer various things including fantastic battery life, performance and connectivity. Qualcomm says that devices running the just-announced Snapdragon 845 processor and X20 modem will arrive next year.

Qualcomm promised higher battery life when it announced the endeavor to create Always On Windows devices with its Snapdragon 835 SoC, and if Asus and HP's claims are true, these devices certainly appear to deliver on that promise.

No need to tether with a smartphone, and no need to deal with offline mode in documents as this always-connected Windows machine has a built-in eSIM, plus a battery that's capable of up to 22 hours of video playback. ASUS will offer the device for $599 ($799 for 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage) first in the US, UK, Italy, France, Germany, Mainland China and Taiwan, and is working with T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon to offer the NovaGo. Both devices will ship with Windows 10S, but ASUS and HP are offering free upgrades to Windows 10 Pro before September 30, 2018. Stay tuned for more.
