Asus, HP out first Windows 10 on Arm devices

Basically, that's Qualcomm saying that you should use Google Assistant more and that it should be faster to launch and do stuff for you. The cache gets purged after a full reboot, but the laptops are meant to be put into standby rather than shut down, so the cache won't get purged that often. Even in sleep mode, its instant on and resume capability means a quick press of the power button brings users back to their movie or spreadsheet immediately.

But for now, "we are talking about always-connected PCs", Chapple said in response to a question about Windows phones. However Qualcomm not only invited Microsoft, but OEM partners to showcase and talk about their upcoming Snapdragon 835 based devices running full fledged Windows 10.

Qualcomm has a long history of building some of the most powerful SoC (system on a chip) processors for tablets and smartphones, especially for powerhouse and flagship phones of the kind that also come with 4K ultra HD video recording or possibly even UHD display. It offers unparalleled performance up to 2.7X2 the CPU show and up to 2.2X3 the Graphic Processing Unit performance generationally.

The NovaGo is a $599 device featuring a 360-degree hinge. The new Snapdragon chip appears to be an enhanced version of its predecessor with some added features like support for AR and VR. Measuring 6.9 mm thick, it matches Apple's 12.9-inch iPad Pro in thickness and nearly matches its weight at 1.54 lbs versus 1.53 lbs. for a 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the cellular option.

ASUS NovaGo will first be sold in the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Germany, mainland China, and Taiwan.

It has fanless design and the small 10nm Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC platform has enabled it to keep it light weight. Combining AMD processors and advanced LTE connectivity technology leads in Always Connected Client Notebooks for customers in a mobile-first future. The device comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, HP hasn't yet revealed pricing and availability details.

This is the 845 and it's tagged to become the replacement to last year's extremely popular Snapdragon 835 chipset, which was installed in numerous phone models, including Samsung's Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus phones from 2017.

The striking HP ENVY x2 utilizes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC platform, giving users the freedom to be mobile with instant-on access to applications. The Spectra 280 of course also supports UHD capture (up to 16MP at 60fps), while slow motion video can be captured at up to 480fps at 720 resolution. "At thesecond annual Snapdragon Technology Summit, we are excited to highlight our role in the mobile ecosystem while we continue to execute on our strategy with Microsoft for the always connected PC".

The Pixel 2 made quite an impact with its Portraits, leveraging machine learning smarts instead of a second main camera to produce pleasant Portrait Mode shots.

eSIM is an integrated chip that provides an always connected experience, enabling users to switch carriers easily without having to physically swap out SIM cards.

The new Adreno 630 is designed to deliver innovations for new XR experiences that span virtual, augmented and mixed reality. The chipmaker also says Wi-Fi performance is now much better than before, especially when in crowded networks.
