Qualcomm Snapdragon X-Elite and X-Plus: Launch Imminent?

Qualcomm is expected to unveil either the Snapdragon X-Plus processor or the first Snapdragon X-Elite-powered laptops next week.

Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon X-Elite processor with much fanfare last year as a direct competitor to Apple’s M-series processors. However, X-Elite-powered laptops have yet to hit the market.

Coinciding with the leak of images of a new Lenovo laptop with X-Elite, Qualcomm has now announced that it will make an important X-Elite announcement on April 24th.

It is not yet clear what X-Elite news we will see next week. Rumors have it that the first Snapdragon X-Elite-powered laptop will be the consumer Surface Laptop 6; however, this rumor is unlikely to be true as the Surface Laptop 6 is scheduled for launch in late May.

The Snapdragon X-Elite was unveiled in late 2023 and quickly grabbed attention. Experts believe that the X-Elite could turn the tide after years and make Windows-based ARM laptops a formidable competitor to Apple’s MacBooks.
