The newly introduced Surface Book 2 sports a battery life of up to 17 hours but Microsoft says we can soon expect devices with a whole lot more juice. The first Windows 10 laptops with Qualcomm Snapdragon ARM-based processors are expected to ship before the end of this year, and the promise is these devices will allow multi-day battery life:
News from Qualcomm's 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong this week suggest that deadline could be met. Trusted Reviews reports that Microsoft's principal group program manager for connectivity partners Pete Bernard told media at the event that hundred of Qualcomm-powered lappies can be seen in the halls at Microsoft HQ. Bernard also said that the machines are doing better than expected in terms of battery life as he now happily leaves his charger behind, safe in the knowledge he won't need it every day.
