We live in a time where notebooks are trying to be mobile phones and phones are becoming PC’s. Optimising 4G connectivity and supporting LTE, mobility is all the excitement where now notebooks can compete with smartphones with the support of sim cards. Need a powerful machine to crunch your heavy reports due for submission, you need a mobility device, and HP has just got the answer.
HP Inc. today unveiled the HP Envy x2, two in one notebook running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile pc processor. You heard it right Snapdragon and not Core i. The notebook company has opted for Qualcomm to deliver its requirement of always connected on mobile bandwidth and still well on Wifi
Looking close to Microsoft Surface, the Envy x2 comes in 12.9 diagonal touch screen with Gorilla Glass 4 display. The main highlight has to be the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem built in which supports 4G LTE-Advanced and comes with 8GB RAM plus 256 GB of storage. Using the chipset also means less power consumption, unlike Intel processors, the 835 operates on low energy giving the Envy x2 20 hours of battery time.
Intel will be reeling over the announcement as more manufacturers are set to use Qualcomm for their mobility notebooks. Having lost out in the smartphone scene, Intel is looking precarious in its own home turf now.
