ASUS announces NovaGo, laptop powered by Snapdragon 835
At this year’s Snapdragon Technology Summit in Maui, Hawaii, ASUS announced the NovaGo, a thin and light convertible laptop powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform.
Its main features being able to last all day while being connected all the time, it is the first Gigabit LTE capable laptop in the world, which is made possible by a Gigabit Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 LTE modem.
The laptop boasts up to a 22-hour battery life, over 30 days of modern standby, eSIM and Nano SIM support. The eSIM makes a state of always connected possible, as well as allowing users to switch mobile carriers without having to physically swap out SIM cards.
The 10nm Snapdragon 835 platform is so small and doesn’t need a cooling fan, which enabled ASUS to take thin and light to a new level. The laptop only weighs 1.39kg, and is only 14.9mm thin.
Design wise, it also has a 360-degree multi-gear hinge, effectively making it a 2-in-1. Its 13.3-inch Full HD LTPS display is actually a NanoEdge display, sporting a very narrow 8.9mm bezel for a sleeker look. It is also a 10-point multitouch display that features ASUS Pen support.
Aside from the Snapdragon 835, the NovaGo is equipped with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 2.0 storage. It runs on Windows 10 S.
