A year after Windows 10 on ARM was first revealed, Microsoft and Qualcomm have finally taken the wraps off of the first two "Always Connected PCs." Neither is available just yet, but we were recently able to get some hands-on time with HP's offering, the HP Envy x2.
The HP Envy x2 is a Surface-like tablet PC running on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor. That allows HP to achieve instant-on capabilities, in addition to claims of up to 20 hours of battery life and LTE connectivity. Support for Windows Hello facial recognition and active pen inking are also on board, and the whole experience comes out of the box powered by Windows 10 S.
There's no pricing available just yet, but HP says it plans to release the Envy x2 sometime in spring 2018. The Envy x2 will also be joined by the ASUS NovaGo, another "Always Connected PC" with which we also recently had a chance to go hands-on.
