The HP Envy x2 is more akin to a Microsoft Surface, with the ability to be used as a tablet, placed upright with a hinged stand on the back of the device, or connected to a keyboard mat. The Snapdragon 835 SoC is complemented by up to 8 GB RAM and up to 256 GB UFS 2.0 storage.

According to Myerson, Always Connected PCs enable a new culture of work, since they are instantly on, provide great battery life and are always connected to the Internet. That's the same setup found in many Android phones released in 2017, including Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Google's Pixel 2.

Along with a range of 'Always Connected PCs, ' Qualcomm also announced its next-gen Snapdragon 845 SoC. Xiaomi also confirmed that the company's next flagship smartphone will be powered by the new mobile platform. Stay tuned as we'll be expanding and upgrading this review very shortly with more info.
