Windows on ARMWindows 10 on ARM is precisely what the name states; Windows 10 on ARM. It looks like Windows 10, acts like Windows 10, and can run Windows 10 apps and programs. It has a few notable restrictions, such as its inability to run x64 apps, but in general, it's simply a version of Windows 10 built to run on ARM processors.

Yesterday, we learned that a company called Emperion is making a Windows phone. Yes, a Windows phone. Windows 10 Mobile support ended over a month ago, but this device is running full Windows on ARM, using what's described as an overclocked Snapdragon 845 (which could be a Snapdragon 850).

It's been a month since the demise of Windows 10 Mobile, and by now, it should be clear that Microsoft isn't going to resurrect it.

The UK company is making a device that runs full Windows on ARM, as it teased on Twitter.

A new Preview Build lets Arm64 devices running Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise use Microsoft's hypervisor, Hyper-V.

Windows on ARMI know, we’re an Android website, but I find the ongoing transition in the PC space from traditional to mobile processors too fascinating to ignore. By which, of course, I mean Microsoft’s mission to support Windows on Arm, with the aid of Qualcomm providing the chips.

But now, we're in the era of the Snapdragon 8cx, a Qualcomm chipset that's built from the ground up for PCs and is meant to be on par with an Intel Core i5.

From the moment I opened up the Surface Pro X, I got the sense that Microsoft had entered a new chapter for its homegrown hardware. Gone are the huge bezels and hard edges found on the company’s previous detachables, and in their place you something that’s sleek and sophisticated, unlike anything Microsoft has made before.
