Ever since the announcement of Windows 10 supporting ARM processors and always connected devices powered by them, there's a question in the community that won't go away.
So we're talking it out in the Windows Central forums.
It's easy to understand why people want this to be a thing. Qualcomm powers a decent chunk of the world's smartphones, indeed, the last Windows phones used their chips, too. And there's still a community of fans who still use Windows phones and would love for there to be something else down the road.
Could we see phones? I suppose you can never say never, but if you ask the magic 8-ball you're likely to see "outlook not so good." And in the case of the forums post specifically, it'd be hard to see Windows on ARM being in a position any time soon to run well on a super-affordable device. Qualcomm has the dedicated Snapdragon 850 coming soon, but these are still premium ARM CPUs.
