windows arm battery life

There is a lot of excitement around the prospect of a Qualcomm-backed version of Windows ever since Microsoft announced the idea last year. Alongside previously-seen demos on the graphical fidelity of the move, Microsoft has now announced that Qualcomm-powered Windows 10 on ARM will offer great battery life, too.

This is what Don McGuire, the VP of Global Product Marketing at Qualcomm, had to say:

To be frank, it’s actually beyond our expectations We set a high bar for [our developers], and we’re now beyond that. ” Pete Bernard added to the conversation and said “it just has a great battery life. So people are getting used to this concept of having a device that you don’t have to charge.

According to Microsoft, the new Qualcomm-powered devices are typically rated to offer 29 hours of Netflix viewing on Wi-Fi and 20+ hours on an LTE powered device.

The rated battery life for Qualcomm-powered Windows devices is twice as much as that of the Surface Pro at 9-10 hours, a figure generated without using Wi-Fi and putting the Qualcomm-powered Windows devices in a different league altogether.

This falls in line with what Qualcomm’s McGuire said earlier regarding users only needing to charge their devices “every couple of days or so.” As of now, both Microsoft and Qualcomm have already tested a handful of PCs and are set to start shipping starting this December. It is likely that the first Windows 10 PCs with ARM will debut with the Snapdragon 835 from OEMs like HP, Lenovo and Asus.
