ASUS NovaGO was part of the initial wave of Windows 10 on ARM devices, with the promise of crazy battery lives, of up to 20 hours. Now that the device was launched in parts of the world, people started wondering when it was going to come to Europe. Today we have the answer… and prices.
Back at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit in December 2017 this product came to life together with the HP Envy x2. It wasn’t ready to hit the stores back then, on account of its lack of Windows 10 Redstone 4, which was not yet ready for release. Also, not all Connected PC features were ready, as some were targeted at Spring 2018, with the update. Now we learn that ASUS has finally confirmed the release date and price for the ASUS NovaGO, which will arrive in April 2018 in Germany.
The price is going to be 699 euros, which translates to $857. The specs we know have stayed the same, including the high power Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of SSD storage and LTE gigabit speed. The 22 hours of battery life promise is still here, plus Digital Ink support and Windows Hello login. Full emulation of Win32 programs is in the mix as well.
In the future such machines will also get 5G, as soon as the required chipsets are in.
