Windows 10 on a Snapdragon 835? KS-PRO wants to make it possible
May 15, 2017
A Microsoft likes the idea that your operating system is in many different places, with a focus on mobile china shop, as ultraportable and phones. Another thing is that your partners get to create devices in conditions, or they have the best operating system for these lids. Today we bring a possible marriage, quite interesting.
More than the device in particular, we are interested in the encounter between the Snapdragon 835 and Windows 10, since the new hardware Qualcomm is called to be the ideal brain for the most powerful mobile devices of 2017, and part of next year. Would he get along? Khiron-Sigma thinks so.
The product under development is called KS-Pro and is being developed by Khiron-Sigma, a London start-up of former Microsoft workers. Okay, this is a project subject to crowdfunding funding, but the truth is that the concept is interesting and we wanted to show it.
Talking about the Snapdragon 835 is now complicated, it has not been able to get LG for its G6, but it seems clear that once the summer is going to be easier hardware to get for smaller manufacturers.
It’s not a phone, it’s a UMPC
The configuration is very interesting, it is not a phone despite having the necessary LTE connectivity. Rather it is a mini computer of those that we called in its day Ultra Mobile PC and they had Windows operating system. Not the only one looking for this, take a look at the Pocket GPD.
Does this make sense at this point? Well I would not know how to answer; I would like someone to give something with a decent hardware and keyboard, and to see if ARM and Windows are meant to be productive.
On technical specifications you can advance something, Khiron-Sigma wants your computer to have an 8-inch Super AMOLED screen, with especially panoramic dimensions, as you start to draw now. The camera would be 12 megapixels, there would be 8GB of RAM and 128GB for storage. A battery of 10,300 mAh would have to feed all this.
A gadget for 2018
The goal in IndieGogo seems complicated, since it’s $ 300,000 what they are asking to get KS-Pro on. For now they have raised $ 60,000, which is not turkey mucus: they are $450 per device, for the first buyers. The normal price would rise to about $600.
If everything goes as it should, it would be presented at the next CES 2018 in Las Vegas, that is, January next year. It is said that in order to take advantage of such interesting hardware, to be created an Android version that possibly left a few months before to the market.
