Qualcomm says that the first Windows 10 ARM PCs will arrive in Q4

"Our Snapdragon 835 is expanding into Mobile PC designs running Windows 10, which are scheduled to launch in the fourth calendar quarter this year", said Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf during the company's latest investor call.

Back at the WinHEC 2016, Microsoft partnered with the Qualcomm to bring the entire Windows 10 experience on the ARM processor. Our Snapdragon 835 is expanding into Mobile PC designs running Windows 10, which are scheduled to launch in the fourth calendar quarter this year.

QUALCOMM HAS LET SLIP that the first ARM-powered Microsoft PCs will arrive in the fourth quarter.

Late a year ago, Microsoft and Qualcomm announced that the companies are bringing full Windows 10 to Qualcomm's ARM processors.

He also reveal that the Snapdragon 835 processor will be the first processor which runs the Windows 10. Microsoft billed the forthcoming devices as a "truly mobile, power-efficient, always-connected cellular PC". Qualcomm says the Snapdragon 835 consumes 25 percent less power than the chip that preceded it, and offers a fast charging technology called Quick Charge 4.0, which it claims generates enough charge to support five hours of smartphone use after five minutes of being plugged in.

Other key features in the Snapdragon 835 include Qualcomm's Kryo 280 octa-core CPU, Adreno 540 GPU, the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem with one gigabit per second downloads and Bluetooth 5.0.

PC makers like Dell and HP have expressed interest in cellular PCs but need time to test the devices. In the video, seen below, Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word and the game World of Tanks Blitz are briefly shown running smoothly on the emulator.

The Windows 10 ARM PC will emulate the functionality of x86, which could slow down applications.

These Snapdragon-based PCs will run Win32 apps using emulation, necessary in order to run this x86 software on ARM-based hardware. Moreover, the company wants to assert itself as an all-encompassing chipmaker that can take on Intel in PCs and servers.

After that event we haven't heard about this topic neither from Qualcomm nor from Microsoft.

As Qualcomm becomes more friendly with Microsoft, the chipmaker is having a rough time with its long-time partner Apple, which has filed a spate of lawsuits and complaints in China, the US, the United Kingdom, and Japan.
