Back in 2016, Microsoft and Qualcomm announced that in the coming years, we’ll see Windows 10 PCs powered by Qualcomm’s ARM processors as these computers will run x86 apps through emulation. Shortly afterwards we saw a number of Snapdragon 835 laptops. However, these laptops didn’t live up to expectations as the products received mainly negative reviews. However, it didn’t stop Qualcomm as back in June, the chip manufacturer announced Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform based on the company’s Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform.
As expected, earlier today, Lenovo introduced Yoga C630 laptop powered by Snapdragon 850. Apart from the 30 percent increase in performance from the Snapdragon 835 powered laptop, the convertible PC has a 13.3 inch full HD screen, 4 or 8GB of LPDDR4X memory and 128 or 256GB UFS 2.1 storage. Apart from that, the laptop comes with 2 USB 3.0 Type-C pots.
Like its predecessor, the Yoga C630 comes with over 25 hours of battery life which is one of the most focused features of ARM powered laptops. However, if you want to get your hands on the latest convertible, you will need to wait few more months as The Lenovo Yoga C630 will be available in November, starting at $849.99.
