AnonD-442781, 05 Nov 2016None of those are laptop class. And the surface tablet is much bigger and different.well, intel claimed it as "laptop class" although it's more appropriate called as "netbook class" and I mean those old surface tablet which use windows RT

Cause windows phone was on rising and they still didn't want to invest in it. If only this people invested a bit of time in it, now we would have had 3 mobile system with good market share. But well, it is how it is.

Second, windows mobile is quite a great system, the only t... moreYou can't blame the developers, since it is just you and me who use Windows mobile, they don't have an incentive to make apps for us. Its okay though, even though a lot of the apps are buggy and I can't even read my email without it messing around, it still works... Sort of. Plus they added an extra feature where I can put it on my desk and use it as a coaster, totally awesome and definitely my favourite feature.
AnonD-606387, 05 Nov 2016What's the point in using a desktop class processor on a phone when it is running a smartphone... moreIt makes sense if the point is to run desktop class software when docked.
AnonD-442781, 05 Nov 2016Intel hasn't made a high end mobile chip before.I think Intel Atom Processor were not on par with SD or other ARM processors. Acer tried to push it but thats about it. Now desktop class with X86 architecture (micro) is not possible to fit within mobile phone without compromising size, battery etc...But Microsoft sort of indicated its direction with Continuum where desktop experience simulated using its docking....It would be interesting of course.
The design of the phone (concept) is similar to Sony Xperia Sola, See yourself . . . !!
Phone looks nice but it's useless if people refuse to buy because the windows store doesn't have proper apps. Put some more money in Windows store first.
XTR, 05 Nov 2016Yeah, that is correct. Wonder why those companies dropped intel procs in their newer phones hmmm.Intel hasn't made a high end mobile chip before.
"Laptop-class Intel processor", but for what?? - It only has sense, if Win32 API, and Desktop version of Windows will be available on phone, but this is useless on phone.
If it is a replacement fort the current continuum mode, it is not a bad idea, but it will be a layer demand. - And of course this will be the final nail to WP's coffin.

Yeah any of those under-powered intel processors. Unless there is something new, we already know that these procs heat fast and eat the battery like a champ. Those were not good in tablets, dunno how much better they'll fare in phones.
laptop cpu means it would have intel atom or pentium or core m which does not need active cooling

Either in the first tweet there are 3 different phones or the Photoshop is weak in that one.
In the second tweet there is also a 4th device with rounded corners and some REALLY BAD photoshopping where the left and right bezels have different sizes.
Pabliell, 05 Nov 2016Keep in mind that laptop CPUs have active cooling, which you can't fit into a slim smartphone.... moreit's not first time a phone or tablet got laptop class cpu by intel, zenfone deluxe, surface tablet, lenovo K900 and many more.. they've done it before with intel atom a couple years ago.. it's funny that you don't know this..
I wish windows to come back.
Sick of Android and ios.
We need more competition.
Not all laptops have active cooling, guessing you people have never owned a ultra book, be it dell, hp, Apple..
Note7 owner, 05 Nov 2016If they make a 4-4.5 inch version mark me down as a buyer. 4.7-5.5" in my case
