Earlier today, Qualcomm and Microsoft announced the first Windows 10 devices with ARM-based processors will be arriving early next year. NovaGo is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 processor which runs most of today's flagships.

There's no word yet on the pricing or availability for the Asus NovaGo, but HP said that the Envy x2 would be arriving in the United Kingdom in February, starting at £999 with a keyboard and active pen included.

The news followed Qualcomm's confirmation at the event that it will be launching a new mobile platform - the Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip.

Asus NovaGo is the world's first Gigabit LTE laptop with superfast download speeds which will allow users to download anything within seconds. Just that the NovaGo is running a mobile processor does not put the device into isolation. Qualcomm boasts battery life of up to 25 hours, plus instant power on and performance that is on par with an Intel computer.

The Asus NovaGo is future of laptops, even if it looks a lot like other 2-in-1 foldable notebooks on the outside. Asus is promising up to 22-hour battery life and over 30 days of standby. ENVY x2 is incredibly thin, light, durable and of course always connected, the HP ENVY x2 offers lightning-fast 4G LTE2 and Wi-Fi. Frost said the Envy x2 can provide up to 20 hours of use between charges and has an X16 LTE modem inside that's good for a theoretical maximum of 1 Gbps bandwidth. Both devices will ship with Windows 10S, but ASUS and HP are offering free upgrades to Windows 10 Pro before September 30, 2018.

Asus tells us that it will also offer a 128GB of storage option, and there may be a 6GB of RAM configuration available too, but it will vary depending on regions and what retailers want in terms of spec. Whether these devices live up to their expectations or not we are sure of one thing that it will create a homogeneous opportunity to take this revolution forward.

"We are again at the beginning of another major technology shift: the ability to be connected anytime, anywhere with Always Connected PCs that are instantly on, always connected with incredible battery life".
