Microsoft Windows and Devices Group executive vice president Terry Myerson said: “Bringing Windows 10 to life with a range of thin, light, power-efficient and always-connected devices, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform, is the next step in delivering the innovations our customers love – touch, pen, Windows Hello, and more – anytime, anywhere.”
In July last year, the company released Windows 10, which introduced “universal apps”, apps that are developed to work on smartphones, personal computers, video game consoles, and HoloLens.
The technology giant said that it has applied for government approval in China for availability of HoloLens to developers and commercial customers in the country in the first half of 2017.
Microsoft has also announced a collaboration with Intel code-named Project Evo.
Under the partnership, the two companies will offer new ways for devices to light up with the latest in advanced security, artificial intelligence and Cortana, mixed reality, and gaming.
The collaboration will provide latest security capabilities to protect devices from malware and hacking threats and advances in biometric authentication with Windows Hello.
Besides, devices will be allowed to leverage sophisticated insights from Microsoft’s Intelligent Security Graph, and additional security intelligence and analytics from Intel.
Microsoft said: “Together, our work will extend these experiences to hundreds of millions of PC and HMD customers and raise the bar for what’s possible with Windows PCs.”
