"Today marks the beginning of a new era of personal computing and ASUS is very proud to be paving the way with Qualcomm Technologies and other partners to develop this new landscape for "Always Connected" Windows on Snapdragon PCs", Jerry Shen, CEO, ASUS, said in a statement. Its NovaGo is a thin and light convertible laptop with a touchscreen. Instead, it rotates 360 degrees to go into tablet mode. It has a full-size backlit keyboard with 1.4 mm key travel.it also has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security. The convertible 13.3-inch laptop is powered by the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, with a Snapdragon X16 LTE modem and a battery life of 22 hours. It is clocked at 2.6 GHz. The notebook comes with an Adreno 540 GPU and 4GB / 8GB of RAM. Configurations also go up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of UFS storage. The connectivity options include two USB Type-A ports, a combo nano-SIM slot, a microSD card reader with support up to 256GB and one HDMI port. The laptop offers seamless connectivity b switching between Wi-Fi and 4G data.

It's touted to last up to 20 hours on a single charge, and in standby mode, it's shy of 30 days - about 700 hours, to be more accurate.

While there's no solid release date just yet, Asus does offer a free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro from Windows 10 S until September 30, 2018, which means the 2-in-1 should be widely available way before then. It is fully compatible with new features such as Windows Ink, Windows Hello, and Cortana.

In some ways, it's sort of a smartphone packaged in the form of a laptop that can run a full OS such as Windows 10, but of course, that may be oversimplifying things.
