The Second Video Worth Sharing Today: The Full Review on the HP Envy X2 Win 10 on ARM 2 in 1 PC

By Tim

This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the details on the HP Envy X2 using Win10 on ARM.

The battery life is amazing but the new tech here suffers from, well, being bleeding edge, but not yet refined. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 works okay, but doesn’t handle 64 software at all.

As usual this is another well made, brutally honest review, which is why you should be subscribed to Andrew’s channel! We did post the initial impressions review a few weeks back and you can find that one right here.

So let us get right to that video and see what Andrew has to say!

That will about cover it for the moment,

Tim

CES 2018: HP Envy x2 Debuts in 2018 Version, With Core-Y CPU, LTE

By Radu Iorga

HP just upgraded its Envy x2 laptop with a 2018 version, that was unveiled in Las Vegas over the last hours. The new HP Envy x2 from CES 2018 relies on an Intel Core-Y processor and also has LTE in the mix. It feels like a Surface rival and also a Windows on ARM rival.

The new x2 has an Intel 7th generation Y series processor inside and runs on Windows 10 Home. The power of the Intel-Y chipset has been raised to 6W from 4.5W, which means we get a performance bump too. Benchmarks are confirming it, with a 17% increase in 3DMark 11 and 20% in PCMark 8. HP Envy x2 with Y Series CPU is a derived version of the earlier model with Snapdragon CPU.

The new device has a promised battery life of around 15 hours. It also comes with HP Fast Charge technology, able to juice up the laptop to 90% in 90 minutes. WiFi and LTE are here, plus a detachable keyboard with 3 modes of use: laptop, reading and tablet. The chassis of the product is made from CNC aluminum and the design is of the fanless variety. Gorilla Glass 4 is also here and the screen is a 12.3 incher with Full HD res.

 

It all measures 7.9 mm in thickness and weighs 1.65 lbs. Other specs include up to 256 GB of PCIe SSD storage, a 5 MP WDR front camera and a main 13 MP WDR support. Dual Bang & Olufen speakers are also included. The kickstand/keyboard mechanism feels a lot like the Surface Pro one. No info about pricing, but the debut time frame is this Spring.

HP Envy x2 is a 2 in 1 Laptop With Windows on ARM, Snapdragon 835 Processor

By Radu Iorga

Yesterday we wrote about the debut of Windows on ARM and now we’re already seeing the debut of new machines with this platform. I’m talking about the HP Envy x2 for one, a 2 in 1 laptop with a Snapdragon 835 processor and 20 hours of battery life. Let’s see what’s so special about this newcomer.

Windows on ARM is a fascinating platform, that lets device makers offer smartphone-like CPUs and experiences on a laptop format. There are multiple pluses for this platform, ranging from LTE support to the generous battery life. HP Envy x2 is a real hybrid, that mixes the tablet and laptop experience, while also having a detachable dock keyboard in the mix.

There’s also a kickstand at the back, which lets us use the device in a variety of modes. The slate measures 6.9 mm in thickness, without the keyboard, which isn’t half bad. It also includes a 12.4 inch Full HD screen, that’s pretty bright. The specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU, Adreno 540 graphics and the RAM quantity is at 8 GB. Then there’s 256 GB of flash storage.

 

HP Envy x2 is an Always On machine, which means it can function as a smartphone and it also powers on and resumes instantly. It comes with 4G LTE, a nano SIM card slot and Bang & Olufsen acoustics. We’ve got a front 5 MP camera, a 13 MP main shooter, audio jack and an USB Type-C port, as well as a microSD card slot and a battery that offers 20 hours of usage.

Windows 10 S is the OS of choice, with the option to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. Its debut takes place in the Spring of 2018 and we don’t have a price, but I expect something like $500 or $600.

Microsoft Debuts Windows 10 on ARM Platform, With HP and ASUS Launching Snapdragon 835 Laptops

By James A.

Today is the big day that we’ve been previewing for months now. It’s time for Intel to take a Xanax, since they’re basically doomed. Windows 10 on ARM is here, with Qualcomm as a big partner and HP and ASUS already launching Snapdragon laptops.

Traditionally Windows laptops and tablets have run on x86 processors from Intel or AMD, but now it’s time for a swap. ARM was part of Microsoft’s plans at some point, when back in 2012 they experimented with Surface RT and Windows RT. It was a costly experiment, a $1 billion failure if I remember correctly, but now Windows on ARM is done right. This time around we’re talking about laptops with a fantastic battery life.

Windows 10 on ARM is now official and the first devices it runs on are called “Always Connected Devices”. The use of Snapdragon chips means you’ll be getting features also found on smartphones, like LTE connectivity, almost instant power on and huge battery life. The future is even said to bring us a week of battery life. Both ASUS and HP claim that their new laptops offer 20 hours of active use battery life and30 days of standby.

 

ASUS has the NovaGo foldable LTE laptop with Snapdragon 835 and HP the ENVY x2, which is basically a Surface clone. Keep in mind that this is no emulated Windows 10, but rather a full version of the OS. The DLLs have been compiled natively and the emulation layer is on top of that. A dynamic binary translator is used to translate X86 code into ARM64 code on the go.

Microsoft and Qualcomm have worked closely on the project for the past year. Legacy apps are said to run at “near native “speeds” and Qualcomm’s integrated X16 LTE modem is also here to keep users online. Windows Hello and Windows Ink are also part of the package. Prices go around $599 for the ASUS NovaGo model for example. We’ll be back with more details.

Just shy of a year after announcing that Windows was once again going to be available on ARM systems, the first two systems were announced today: the Asus NovaGo 2-in-1 laptop, and the HP Envy x2 tablet.

Branded as Always Connected PCs, the new Windows on ARM systems are positioned as bringing together the best of PCs and smartphones. They have PC form factors, with the productivity enabled by a real keyboard, touchpad, and general purpose operating system capable of running regular Windows software, but they bring with them the seamless switching between LTE and Wi-Fi, instant on, multiple working day battery life, and slimline, lightweight packaging that we’re accustomed to on our phones.

The Asus laptop boasts 22 hours of battery life or 30 days of standby, along with LTE that can run at gigabit speeds. HP’s tablet offers a 12.3 inch, 1920×1280 screen, 20 hours battery life or 29 days of standby, and a removable keyboard-cover and stylus. Both systems use the Snapdragon 835 processor and X16 LTE modem, with HP offering up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage to go with it.
