Home » Windows 10 laptops to emulate smartphone specs in 2017

The WinHEC 2016 event hosted by Microsoft was full of interesting announcements that promised great things for the future of both mobile devices and computers. However, one particular announcement made by Qualcomm sparked the interest of many.

According to Qualcomm, we should see new Snapdragon 835 processing units coming out that offer compatibility for Windows 10-operated laptops. This announcement falls into Microsoft’s plan of uniting all platforms and creating overall unity in the tech industry. Following the initiation of their platform unification, which will see the Xbox platform merge with Windows 10, Microsoft seems to be ready for the next step. The Windows developer wants to give laptops smartphone-oriented characteristics.

One of the more noticeable changes that will occur will be that laptops will be way lighter. Qualcomm-powered laptops will also be more silent and won’t require a fan. The process of making computers lighter and easier to use on-the-go has been ongoing since the inception of the first computer. Laptops stand as proof to this theory. It was a major transition coming from full-blown desktop setups even if they were a lot bulkier than current laptops.

The same chip that will power future Windows 10 laptops will also be made available for Samsung smartphones in the near future. While it is unclear whether Qualcomm chips will be given a laptop line of their own or completely replace the traditional Intel or AMD configurations, users can expect to see them starting with 2017.

The Qualcomm laptops won’t be just cheap gimmicks as important functionalities have been promised. These include support for Outlook and the Office suite, as well as support for video games. Come 2017, we will have more information on what Microsoft and Qualcomm are planning.
