Windows on ARMMicrosoft's ambitious plan to bring full Windows 10 with x86 app emulation to ARM processors was announced in December 2016, and it was promised that the first devices would use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset. The first devices announced were HP's Envy x2 and the ASUS NovaGo, and they shipped with Windows 10 version 1709, or the Fall Creators Update.

Obviously, Qualcomm has a newer flagship chipset out, the Snapdragon 845, and we know that Windows 10 will eventually support the new SoC. SD845-powered PCs are coming in the second half of 2018, but it appears that we'll have to wait for the next Windows 10 feature update, codenamed Redstone 5.
