Taiwanese tech major ASUS on Wednesday announced NovaGo (TP370), the world's first Gigabit LTE-capable laptop, at the second annual "Snapdragon Technology Summit" here. The notebook comes with a 360-degree rotatable hinge, which allows it to be used in several modes like laptop, tablet, stand and tent.
The ASUS NovaGo features a 13.3-inch full HD IPS NanoEdge display with a screen to body ratio of 78 percent.
The convertible laptop is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile PC platform and features a Gigabit Snapdragon X16 LTE modem that, the company claimed, offers download speeds exceeding that of typical home Wi-Fi. That, coupled with the device's keyboard design, makes it reminiscent of the Microsoft Surface Pro. Since it runs Windows 10, it will support all key Windows features like Windows Ink, Windows Hello and Cortana. It supports Embedded SIM (eSIM) as well as Nano SIM.
The device has up to 22-hour battery life with over 30 days of stand-by time and a built-in eSIM that ensures seamless connectivity across borders, the company said. The laptop is equipped with up to 8GB memory, 256GB of Universal Flash Storage 2.0 (UFS 2.0).
Thanks to connected standby mode, all data is constantly synced to the cloud. Connectivity options include two USB 3.1 gen 1 Type-A ports, and a HDMI port. Even in sleep mode, NovaGo wakes up periodically to check for new emails, receives notifications, and perform other tasks.
The ASUS NovaGo's 4GB / 64GB variant has been priced at $599 (~Rs 38,600), while the 8GB / 256GB model will set you back by $799 (~Rs 51,500).
