HP's LTE-ready PC wants you to leave your charger at home

Without divulging too much in the way of specs, Qualcomm SVP Alex Katouzian highlighted a few of the key focuses for the chip, including imaging/video processing, AI, VR/AR and battery life.

At its technology summit in Maui this afternoon, Qualcomm provided some additional details of the results of its partnership with Microsoft to bring Windows to the chipmaker's SoCs.

HP didn't provide pricing on the new Envy x2 but they did have a release window of spring 2018.

What it does mean is the Asus NovaGo is cheaper than some of the flagship Android smartphones that also feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset, which puts it into a reasonably affordable category. So on the outside it doesn't really look any different to other 2-in-1s that run Intel or any other chip. It has some edge over the Intel-powered laptops.

The HP Envy x2 can be detached and turned into a tablet.

The Envy x2, in keeping with Microsoft's always-connected PC vision, purportedly sports long battery life, almost instant wake times from a sleep state, and ubiquitous LTE connectivity.

Similar to the NovaGo, HP's Envy x2 is a thin and light Windows 10 S laptop aimed at creatives, and it also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, up to 8GB of LPDDR4 PoP memory, and up to 256GB of storage. Both of the devices have LTE connectivity built into it which makes them Ultra mobile PCs.

This means we're now seeing a laptop capable of 1Gbps speeds, which are three to seven times faster than your broadband speeds at home, depending on where you live. "The Envy x2 will have a Surface-like detachable keyboard and will be just 0.3" (6.9 mm) thick. The price of Asus NovaGo stats at $599 (4GB RAM with 64GB storage), which is approximately Rs 41,500.

The Envy x2 has a 12in screen with a 1920x1280 resolution and supports stylus input. 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.
