Qualcomm, Microsoft Announce First Windows 10 Laptops With Snapdragon 835 Processors

Xiaomi confirms Snapdragon 845 will power its Mi 7

For improved security, to protect personal data such as mobile payment transactions, the Snapdragon 845 introduces a hardware isolated subsystem called the secure processing unit, which is designed to add vault-like characteristics to existing layers of Qualcomm Technologies' mobile security. It's also announced the upcoming Snapdragon 845, and a bevy of improvements to go along with it.

The 845 comes with support for Room-Scale VR where users will be able to move around virtual boundaries that emulate real-life rooms instead of moving and looking around randomly.

In my experience with an Asus NovaGo laptop, the older X86 utility Audacity ran absolutely fine, while the newer Firefox Quantum browser took several app restarts to get working.

While Microsoft itself isn't launching hardware, the company yesterday showed off new Windows 10 devices from Asus and HP that it's touting as the first 'Always Connected' Windows 10 devices. He said that taking the U.S. market is going to take a considerable amount of research and analysis. Users will also have a one-time option to switch to Windows 10 Pro11 to access the full ecosystem of Windows applications.

Talking to various experts here, I'm more and more convinced that Apple not only crippled its Snapdragon X16 modems by deciding not to turn on 4x4 MIMO but also tuned the X16 down to match the Intel XMM7480 modem's lesser performance. Qualcomm has essentially said that its biggest focus points for the 845 are video, AI, immersion, security, connectivity and performance.

"Always Connected PCs are instantly on, always connected with a week of battery life", said Myerson.

HP combines the best of a smartphone experience with the best of a Windows PC. Qualcomm too is doing it. As a company that powers majority of devices with a cellular chip in them - these are smartphones - Qualcomm is a key player for 5G.

So far, the laptops that were announced by Microsoft and Qualcomm are similar to previously released 2-in-1 tablet/laptops that have Intel processors.

Yesterday, Qualcomm gave us a sneak peek at its next generation mobile processor: the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform.

The laptop comes with different memory configurations: 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, 6GB RAM with 128GB storage and 8GB RAM with 256GB storage.

Interestingly, the NovaGo and the other Snapdragon-based device we saw, the HP Envy x2, both run the Insider (beta) version of Windows 10. Just in case the rumors turn out to be true, the all-new Xiaomi flagship will end up becoming the first Snapdragon 845 powered device. Unfortunately, no accurate and specific information about what the device is, yet, however, the American Corporation has recently opened a new vacancy.

We already mentioned that Qualcomm has added some of its own magic to Bluetooth 5. Qualcomm even believes the chipset will be better in these regards than many full-blown DSLR or mirrorless camera models today with 4K video recording. Combining AMD processors and advanced LTE connectivity technology leads in Always Connected Client Notebooks for customers in a mobile-first future. 4G LTE not available in all regions.
