Microsoft first announced the Asus NovaGo, it will be the world's first Gigabit LTE convertible laptop.

ASUS has launched NovaGo which is the world's first Gigabit LTE-capable laptop designed for truly connected mobility, providing users with an always-on, always-connected experience.

The main part of the SoC includes Adreno 630 graphics that enables 30 percent faster performance compared to Adreno 540 in the Snapdragon 835. At the same time, it allows better Ultra HD Premium video capture and has 30 percent lower power consumption.

"Mobile intensive customers want a versatile device that keeps up with their busy lives and lets them be connected to everything that matters when they need to", said Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager, consumer personal systems, HP, Inc. "What we're thinking is how can we make the PC more like a smartphone".

Those efforts may struggle to move forward if Broadcom's attempt to acquire Qualcomm succeeds. Broadcom has offered $105bn for Qualcomm in an approach that so far Qualcomm has spurned.

Xiaomi is ready to debut their new phone Mi 7 with the Snapdragon 845 processor. Four antennas ensure ultrafast connectivity through LTE Advanced Cat 16 cellular networking, while dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and MU-MIMO technology provide download speeds of up to 867Mbps. It's enlisting phone service providers such as Sprint to help promote the products.

Qualcomm says computers based on its chips could get more than 25 hours of normal use from one charge. Of course everyone realizes now the importance of artificial intelligence on mobile devices. Its previous attempt failed due to poor performance of the tablets and lack of software and hardware options.

Developers will have access to specific cores, where they can tap the Hexagon 683 DSP, the GPU, or the Kryo-based CPU.

Furthermore, Jun revealed that they will not be debuting the Mi 7 in the U.S. market yet. "We've been delivering always connected PCs for years and remain laser focused on offering the latest technology that will bring value to consumers".
