However, the 845 is also likely to appear in a host of "Always Connected" Windows 10 laptops like the ASUS and HP convertibles also announced today.

Rumors also suggests that the new Snapdragon 845 chipset could support dual-cameras up to 25-megapixel both on the front and back.

If you've picked up a flagship phones from the likes of Google, Samsung or HTC in 2017 then the likelihood is that it'll be powered by the Snapdragon 835 mobile platform - now Qualcomm has unveiled its successor. Both models will launch with Windows 10 S, but can be upgraded to the full Windows 10 experience. Are you excited about these first Windows 10 on ARM PCs?

As a result, first impressions from the new devices aren't hugely different from any other Windows 10 device. Retail prices start from US$599 for the 4 GB RAM/64 GB storage version and tops at US$799 for the 8 GB RAM/256 GB storage version. The device features a 2-in-1 design with a 360-degree hinge, a 13.3-inch HD touchscreen, 4 or 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, an HDMI port, two USB-A ports, stylus input, and a microSD card slot. The NovaGo is touted to run for up to 22 hours on a single charge, while the Envy x2 will run for up to 20 hours. This is a huge deal for a number of geeky tech reasons, but there's one huge takeaway for anyone who uses a PC: Battery life is about to get ridiculous. It also says that the built-in LTE connectivity will provide significantly faster speeds than other now available LTE-equipped Windows 10 computers.

More details are to come in a press junket, including the release timeframe. "OEMs around the world will now be able to combine the recently announced AMD Ryzen mobile processors with Qualcomm Technologies' leading wireless solutions via their Snapdragon LTE modem family to achieve new levels of performance, connectivity and capability for ultrathin notebook PCs". Stay tuned for more.
