Microsoft and Qualcomm announced in late 2016 one of the most ambitious projects since the release of Windows 10: the full version of the desktop operating system on ARM processors, with the Snapdragon 835 said to be the first chip to bring this to production.
While the first Snapdragon devices running full Windows 10 are expected to launch later this year, a company named Khiron-Sigma (also referred to as K∑), is trying to develop an UMPC (ultra mobile portable computer) running Android Nougat and Windows 10 powered by an ARM chip.
Hoping to fund the project with a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, the firm is building two different versions for each operating system: the KS-PROID with Android and the KS-PRO with full Windows 10.
