HP ENVY x2 takes on Surface Pro with Snapdragon 835

ASUS Nova Go Windows 10 on Snapdragon laptop has 22hr battery

Utilizing the Snapdragon 835 SoC, both of these devices will also feature cellular connectivity from the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem.

The news comes nearly a full year after Microsoft and Qualcomm took to the stage at WinHEC to announce that they'd be working together to bring full Windows 10 to ARM processors.

The ASUS NovaGo is "the world's first Gigabit LTE laptop" and can reportedly download a two-hour movie in just 10 seconds (under ideal conditions, which rarely exist). As for availability, we haven't heard on the Asus machine, but HP says that the Envy will be out in the spring of 2018.

The 4GB RAM/64 GB storage version will cost only $599, while the 8GB/256 GB version will cost only $799. The Envy x2 also reportedly supports Windows Hello facial recognition and an active pen for inking. Asus is claiming 22 hours of continuous video playback and 30 days of standby.

Qualcomm first announced that Snapdragon system on chips were coming to Windows early this year, but we do finally have news that a real concrete product is going to be released.

HP's Envy X2 for 2017 - along with the Asus NovaGo - is a tablet/laptop hybrid designed for up to 20 hours of battery life. We are again at the beginning of another major technology shift: the ability to be connected anytime, anywhere with Always Connected PCs that are instantly on, always connected with incredible battery life. When I think about organizations and whether they are going to leverage the massive networks of mobile operators and adopt these new PCs - the answer is simple: "It is not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and how fast all mobile PCs become Always Connected PCs", the company explains.

Both of these devices will come preinstalled with Windows 10 S but will allow for a one-time upgrade to a full Windows 10 license which will allow users to install non-Windows store applications. Qualcomm and Microsoft together hope that this family of thin, light, Windows 10 device will reverse those fortunes. We also expect to see more devices like this launch at CES 2018 next month. This is a huge deal for a number of geeky tech reasons, but there's one huge takeaway for anyone who uses a PC: Battery life is about to get ridiculous.

What I find more interesting is that with the new smaller logic boards for ARM processors (compared to traditional x86) and long battery life manufacturers are free to create all sorts of new PC experiences and designs.

On the computing side, it'll run Windows 10 S, just as the Surface Laptop does.
