The Snapdragon 845 was three years in the making, Qualcomm said, and the development team honed in one six core features: Content creation, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, wireless, and power consumption.
Although Windows devices running on the Snapdragon Mobile Platform have, for a while, been promised before the end of the year, it was looking a little unlikely. However, you'll be able to get a model with 8/256GB for an extra $200. The tech firms have jointly just about managed it by introducing the NovaGo.
Calling the machines "next wave in innovation" Myserson extolled the virtues of this new wave of laptops, which he said would also offer always-on connectivity, fanless operation and "better security". 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 optics are bad for the Labor Party, and Dastyari has been demoted again . However, the new laws "are not about any one country", he said.
HP and Qualcomm promise a 20-hour battery life on the HP Envy x2, and while it's a lofty promise, if it's true this could well be the longest-lasting Windows 10 device we've ever tested.
The NovaGo comes in a convertible form factor. The NovaGo offers up to 22 hours of battery life (video playback), up to 30 days of standby time, and comes with support for Windows Ink, Windows Hello, and Cortana. Both models will launch with Windows 10 S, but can be upgraded to the full Windows 10 experience. Until then, it's worth mentioning that, once again, the Snapdragon 845 is the result of the collaboration between Qualcomm and Samsung. 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.
For now, stay tuned for more information on the Snapdragon 845.
