Qualcomm and Microsoft are working together to launch the first Windows 10 PC with ARM. At IFA 2017 in Berlin, Qualcomm has confirmed that the first Windows 10 ARM PC would come with Snapdragon 835 processor.
Recently, Qualcomm revealed Windows 10 ARM PC could be coming in the fourth quarter. Yesterday at IFA 2017, Qualcomm once again confirmed that Windows 10 PC with Snapdragon 835 is coming soon. The company hasn’t revealed any other details of the most anticipated device.
“Stay tuned to learn more about how Windows PCs powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform are delivering breakthrough user experiences,” Qualcomm said at the event.
Until now, Windows 10 has worked only on x86 chips but this is changing as Microsoft wants to stop the Intel’s dominance. The Windows 10 Device with ARM is going to be thin-and-light. It will have smartphone like features, as Snapdragon 835 was designed for smartphones, the device will also have a long battery life.
Apparently, the device will always be connected to a cellular network. We don’t know when Microsoft will announce the first Windows 10 ARM PC but it is said to be coming later this year.
