Asus, HP Debut Snapdragon-Powered Windows Laptops

Qualcomm takes aim at Intel in PC processors

These type of PCs, such as the ones from HP and ASUS are running Windows 10 on ARM, and they can deliver all-day battery life, better security, and much more. HP Envy x2 is slated to launch next sprint, the company hasn't provided the pricing and availability details yet.

If you've picked up a flagship phones from the likes of Google, Samsung or HTC in 2017 then the likelihood is that it'll be powered by the Snapdragon 835 mobile platform - now Qualcomm has unveiled its successor.

There are plenty of Microsoft Surface rivals - or clones if you like - out there and the HP Envy x2 is now another one.

You can also detach the keyboard cover completely and use the Envy x2 as a standalone tablet akin to the iPad Pro.

Contrary to what you might expect, the new Windows 10 ARM computers don't look hugely different from their Intel counterparts. We already had a chance to check the Envy x2 out - check out our hands-on here. That's local video playback with the NovaGo offering an every more impressive 22. This conversion is cached both in memory (so each given part of a program only has to be translated once per run) and on disk (so subsequent uses of the program should be faster, as they can skip the translation).

That's not all as standy time is quoted at 700 hours and HP says you can get 0-90 percent charge in just 90 minutes.

The company says the 845 features "billions" of transistors and took three years to build. Qualcomm will be pairing it with its X20 LTE modem, which allows for gigabit speeds if a wireless network allows it.

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.

Asus tells us that it will also offer a 128GB of storage option, and there may be a 6GB of RAM configuration available too, but it will vary depending on regions and what retailers want in terms of spec. There's audio by Bang & Olufsen, a microSD card slot, a USB-C port, a 13Mp rear camera and 5Mp front camera.
