At Qualcomm Technologies, we’re committed to an era of accelerated innovation, and today marks a historical milestone in mobile computing. Just over three years ago, we announced our collaboration with Microsoft to power Windows 10 PCs with Qualcomm Snapdragon compute platforms. Since then, we have worked relentlessly to bring the best of the smartphone to the PC by powering devices that deliver great performance and incredible battery-life, gigabit-class always-on LTE connectivity, in thin and light, fan-less designs.
Today, we are also proud to support the co-development of Microsoft SQ1, an evolution of the Snapdragon compute platform, for the iconic Microsoft Surface Pro X — a device that delivers premium PC power and performance on the go in an ultra-thin, 2-in-1 laptop. It joins a new class of modern, lightweight devices built upon our renowned DNA.
Announced today, the Surface Pro X is another proof point of our strong collaboration with Microsoft. The Microsoft SQ1 was developed specifically with Surface Pro customer needs in mind. In addition to best-in-class CPU, GPU and AI capabilities, it enables always on, always connected mobility, enhanced multitasking performance, high-quality 4K video, long battery life, and gigabit-class LTE connectivity.
With the versatility of Surface Pro X coupled with the Microsoft SQ1 powered by Qualcomm® technologies, we are excited that this device will help serve the needs of both consumers and enterprises and transform the way people stay connected and productive — ushering in a new era of mobile computing. The Surface Pro X is a powerful addition to the growing ecosystem of Always On, Always Connected PCs — a significant milestone for Qualcomm Technologies and Microsoft and one that marks an inflection point on the road to redefining the mobile computing experience with 5G!
