Xiaomi's next flagship smartphone will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip

Qualcomm takes aim at Intel in PC processors

Earlier Tuesday, the company showed off the first 2-in-1 PCs that run Windows 10 and are powered by its Snapdragon mobile processor. The tech firms have jointly just about managed it by introducing the NovaGo.

There's now no firm Asus NovaGo release date, but an Asus spokesperson told us that it's expected to arrive in early Spring in the U.S., while it's likely to arrive in Europe (the UK, France, Germany and Italy) during Q2 of 2018.

Besides an always-on PC and huge battery life, one of the other benefits of a Snapdragon processor is that no cooling fan is required, so the Envy x2 will always be free of annoying fan noise. It's no secret powering these PCs with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chips would enable this functionality, so it makes sense to capitalize on it.




Contrary to what you might expect, the new Windows 10 ARM computers don't look hugely different from their Intel counterparts. HP, Asus, and Lenovo will all be launching laptops and convertibles with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor in them, with prices expected to range from $600 to $800. Always connected to a battery supporting 30 days of standby and 22 hours of active use.

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. The device runs Windows 10 S out of the box, you will however able to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. 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. The Snapdragon 835 SoC is complemented by up to 8 GB RAM and up to 256 GB UFS 2.0 storage. However, connectivity on the NovaGo includes 2x USB 3.1 Type-A ports, as well as an HDMI Port and Micro-SD card slot for memory expansion allowing for more options than the HP Envy x2. Microsoft's Terry Myerson came on stage today to briefly talk about these Windows 10 on ARM PCs, he later detailed the benefits of this new platform via a post on the Windows Experience Blog.

The screen flips 360 degrees and supports a stylus.
