Qualcomm says that the new chip will bring a 20% battery life boost too (up to 25 hours of continuous usage), as well as a 20% increase in Gigabit LTE speeds (up to 1.2Gbps in theory), and 30% faster graphics.

In the realm of laptop-specific features, there's really not much to go on aside from the fact that Qualcomm is now promising native support in Windows 10 for ARM64 applications via the 64-bit Win32 SDK. It doesn't completely rewrite the current situation, and I expect we will still find the improved performance to be lacking when compared to Intel, especially when software emulation is utilized.
Sprint has said that it plans to offer its customers free unlimited data in 2018 with AutoPay on Qualcomm Snapdragon Always Connected PCs from Asus, HP and Lenovo.
