Windows 10 on ARM project running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform brings cellular connectivity to PCs, and as Intel can’t really afford to let its competitor lead the always-connected internet project, the company has announced a partnership with Microsoft, Lenovo, HP and Dell to bring 5G to PCs as soon as second half of 2019.

We are expecting more details about this project at Mobile World Congress (MWC). The company says that a 2-in-1 PC with a early 5G modem will be demonstrated at MWC, though it would be a concept. The 5G-connected 2-in-1 PC will give us an idea about the potential of Intel’s new 5G chips, and as well the benefits for consumers.

Microsoft, Dell, HP and Lenovo have decided to create new PCs with 5G connectivity using Intel’s XMM 8060 5G multimode modem, which will be ready for consumers next year. Intel says that the PCs with 5G connectivity will be available for purchase in the second half of 2019, as 5G for many carriers is still a work in progress project.

“Intel is investing deeply across its wireless portfolio and partners to bring 5G-connected mobile PCs to market, with benefits for users, like high-quality video on-the-go, high-end gaming, and seamless connections as users traverse Wi-Fi and cellular networks,” the chipmaker said.

Earlier today, HP started taking pre-orders for their first Always Connected PCs announced at Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Technology summit last month. While the device is not budget friendly, it comes with impressive specs and battery life. It goes without saying that HP’s Qualcomm-powered Windows 10 PC isn’t exactly affordable compared to PCs with Intel processors, but the actual feature of this device is a longer battery life which can deliver up to 22 hours of usage. Windows 10 devices with Intel processors will support x86 desktop apps and drivers, while Snapdragon-powered PCs will deliver better battery life, it will be interesting to see how the Always-Connected PC category will evolve in the coming months.
