Ever since the Samsung Galaxy S8 was unveiled, fans and tech enthusiasts have been ogling about its impeccable design and game-changing innovations. Among its impressive new features, the new and extremely powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 remains one of the many reasons why Samsung will finally get out of the hole it dug itself into with the Galaxy Note 7. The processor, is, in fact, so powerful that it can run Windows 10.

According to ZDNET, Qualcomm has already indicated that it is possible for Windows 10 to run on its latest Snapdragon 835 processor. As a matter of fact, it has confirmed that always-on mobile Windows 10 PCs that run on its ARM-based SoC are coming real soon.

This is old news really as Qualcomm, along with Microsoft, already announced this late last year. Back then, the two companies only mentioned that the cellular Windows 10 PCs that will run on the ARM processors will arrive sometime in 2017. The new announcement makes things a bit more specific as the said devices will now supposedly arrive during the fourth quarter of the year.

Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf explained that the company's Snapdragon 835 System-on-Chip will expand into mobile PCs running Windows 10. As reported by BGR, the company wishes to see some smartphone technologies that are now possible courtesy of its new processor to Windows 10 PCs. If successful, mobile Windows 10 devices will have innovations such as Gigabit LTE. The devices may also get the battery-saving tech that shall also allow the devices to stay connected to a network at all times and to be ultralight, as well.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 already has an accessory that will allow it to run Windows 10 on the phone. That device is the Samsung Desktop Experience or DeX. If Qualcomm's wishes do come true, future Samsung devices and other mobile gadgets for that matter will no longer need an accessory such as the DeX to use Windows 10.
