Following the footsteps of Windows RT Tablets, the ARM-powered Windows 10 devices are called “cellular PCs” and packed with Snapdragon 835 chipsets, the devices will be more powerful. In addition to this, these devices will be also backed with x86 apps, 2-in-1 designs, high-speed integrated modems, Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Gig capabilities. According to Qualcomm CEO, these devices are likely to arrive in the market by the end of this year.
The companies which are interested in the particular project are Dell and HP. But, companies are cautious about the initial phase of the project.
