A while back I reported testing of Windows 10 on Snapdragon 820, but this testing was just a proof a concept and to get the idea out to the public.

Step forward a bit and we have Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 devices ready to be released in the first half of 2018.

Proof of the readiness is Qualcomm showing off the first set of Snapdragon Windows 10 laptops at an electronics show in Hawaii.

The devices hail from HP and Asus. HP’s Envy x2 Snapdragon 835 laptop will be a detachable 2-in-1 with a folio-style keyboard similar to Surface Pro and will carry a WUXGA+ (1920*1280) display. Asus’ 835 is called NovaGo and takes the form of a typical 2-in-1 convertible laptop.

While there is no final release date set, HP has hinted at a Spring 2018 release.

According to Qualcomm, most laptops using Snapdragon SoC will be some type of 2-in-1.

The benefits of an ARM-based powered laptop are the excellent power efficiency and the possibility of an always-connected laptop. The latter bit would allow us to use a laptop much like we use our phone, leaving it in a deep-sleep state which uses almost no power, yet, for example, will still allow emails to come through. HP claims up to 700 hours standby time.

Head-to-head with Microsoft’s Surface Book

HP’s device has a SIM slot and Asus’ laptop has an embedded eSIM. Additionally, these laptops will benefit from Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology.

According to the hype, the Snapdragon 835 Windows laptops may see upwards of 24 hours screenon time thanks to ARM efficiency; HP touts 20 hours of local video playback for the Envy X2.
