Xiaomi's next flagship will use Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip

Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit Snapdragon 845 always-connected PC 5G and other big announcements

This could see laptops featuring AMD's Ryzen Mobile processors shipping with Snapdragon LTE modems. The new version looks more like a Microsoft Surface Book, complete with a folding keyboard cover and a kickstand, and a holder for the included HP Digital Pen. Qualcomm didn't disclose how much faster the Snapdragon 845 would be relative to this year's top-of-the-line Snapdragon 835, but that chip was significantly faster than its predecessor when we tested it at the start of 2017 while consuming less power. Just that the NovaGo is running a mobile processor does not put the device into isolation.

Similar to the HP offering, the ASUS NovaGo will be available in configurations ranging up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of Storage.

Impressively, though, unlike the rest of the laptop and smartphone industry, the prices of these new machines will be very reasonable. The model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage runs to $799.

Korea tensions rise ahead of US-South Korea joint military drill
Western analysts said it is more likely the truck was one of about half a dozen vehicles obtained years ago from China, which North Korea has modified since then.

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. The Envy x2 will also support an active stylus that is Windows Ink certified for activities such as note-taking and illustration. "According to PC Magazine, the machine has a 12.3" screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio, a fanless 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 835, and just 4 GB of memory. "ASUS NovaGo reinvents the concept of laptop connectivity and productivity - it's the world's first announced laptop that is connected virtually anywhere, at any time, with the new Gigabit LTE network*; and lasts up to 22 hours on a single charge for "all-day" battery life". It also says that the built-in LTE connectivity will provide significantly faster speeds than other now available LTE-equipped Windows 10 computers.

Utilizing the Snapdragon 835 SoC, both of these devices will also feature cellular connectivity from the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem. The company didn't give many details about the processor but said Samsung's foundry business will be manufacturing the chip.

We expect to hear more about the Snapdragon 845 tomorrow, so stay tuned for more.
