Windows 10 is coming to Snapdragon 835

The objective of Windows 10 ARM is to allow manufacturers to build "connected PCs" with always-on capabilities, and the more power-efficient ARM chip from Qualcomm also makes it possible for OEMs to build thinner and lighter devices with better battery life. Al three OEMs have committed to delivering new computing experiences later this that will come with standard gigabit-class LTE (courtesy of the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem), all-day battery life (afforded by the efficient ARM architecture and 10nm manufacturing process) and always-on versatility. The Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform will also feature 802.11ac with 2x2 MU-MIMO for optimal Wi-Fi connectivity on the go.

"We are thrilled that OEMs are sharing our vision to bring the Windows 10 experience to the ARM ecosystem, powered by Qualcomm Technologies", said Matt Barlow, corporate vice president, Windows marketing, Microsoft in the press statement. See also: Snapdragon 835 benchmark results.

Qualcomm's recent efforts of bringing their chips to different device categories is on shape with the latest announcement done by the company in partnership with Windows-OS maker Microsoft.

Qualcomm also provided images that show the logic board size differences between the Snapdragon 835 platform (above) and rivals (below). Qualcomm made a decision to use its mobile processors in laptops because the Snapdragon 835 has a much smaller footprint than Intel or AMD's chips which will allow for manufacturers to add larger batteries to the devices. Microsoft further says that VAIO and Xiaomi are also committed to Always Connected PCs using eSIM.

While it's still unclear what and especially how many shapes "cellular PCs" will take starting this holiday season, HP, Lenovo and Asus have just been confirmed at a joint Microsoft/Qualcomm Computex event as the first companies in charge of Snapdragon 835-based hardware. The laptops with Qualcomm SoC 835 and Windows 10 will likely launch the fourth quarter for 2017. New PCs will include support for all Windows applications, including Microsoft Office. Thus, you will soon have a simplified Windows 10 experience at your fingertips.
