What’s so special about the Snapdragon 835 processor? It will give you a higher speed of Internet. It may also almost double your battery life. It will increase the capabilities of your smartphones and tablets without increasing their sizes and without making them heavier.
But how does it make the upcoming Windows laptops act more like smartphones and tablets? More efficient chips mean just like your smartphones, you will be able to keep your laptop turned on and connected to the Internet all the time. Using a laptop will be just a matter of picking it up and awakening it by pressing a button or simply by shaking it. The latest processors also have a lesser need to be kept cool so the new laptops may see smaller designs without fans. With no fans and smaller hard disks, the laptops will be thinner and lighter. Touchscreen laptops have already become the default. Microsoft has been implementing a universal version of Windows 10 across all devices so that no matter what device you’re using, there is no difference.
Up till now, as reported in the CNET article, laptop and PCs haven’t been able to use the Qualcomm processors that are mostly available for mobile devices. It’s mostly Intel and AMD chips for laptops and PCs. With the new laptops coming in 2017 all the Windows apps like Microsoft Office, Outlook and Windows 10 games will be available in all the devices. The article says that Windows 10 PCs running on the Snapdragon 85 processor may be available by the second half of 2017.
