The presence of Windows 10 laptop powered by Qualcomm’s flagship mobile processor, Snapdragon 835, was officially announced by Microsoft through its participation in the annual Qualcomm 5G Summit held this week in Hong Kong. One interesting piece of information that could be mentioned is related to the battery life of devices that supposedly can last longer than a day of operation without the recharging of batteries (charge).
Battery support that can last more than a full day is still not very common in the laptop world, although there are advantages made in recent years. Just take Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon for example, the laptop is reportedly able to operate nonstop almost 9 hours in a trial video home that is playing to test the laptop battery life. Most of the laptops reportedly not one could approach it, but Microsoft seems so optimistic with what it has done.
As Pete Bernard, Principal Group Manager for Connectivity Partners at Microsoft, told Trust Review some time ago, the battery life of this upcoming laptop is “very good.” The battery life of more than a day is expected to be a new breakthrough that will change the development of mobile computing, and that’s what Bernard can describe. Not only promising for consumers, but of course also for developers to continue to exist.
When Microsoft first announced this laptop, it is expected to be released at least before the end of 2017. So far, Microsoft still seems to push the time frame, with the expected announcement in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, it will continue testing various models-hundreds of them used in Redmond every day, according to Bernard.
At least only three manufacturers are currently developing a Windows 10-based PC with Snapdragon support in it, namely ASUS, HP, and Lenovo. But if this laptop product becomes a hit on the market, however, it would make sense if many other manufacturers who are also lining up will follow.
