JOI has just announced their latest product, the JOI Book SK3000. Unlike their previous releases which came with Intel processors under the hood, the JOI Book SK3000 is an Always Connected PC powered by Qualcomm. This marks JOI’s first ever laptop running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon Compute Platform.

The JOI Book SK3000 features built-in LTE connectivity, thanks to the Snapdragon 850. This allows the JOI Book SK3000 to be always connected as long by simply inserting a nanoSIM into the laptop. The Snapdragon 850 is essentially an overclocked Snapdragon 845, with its Kryo 385 Gold cluster clocked at up to 2.96GHz. If this sounds familiar, that’s because that is essentially the chipset that’s powering the first ever ROG Phone.

The chipset is mated to 4GB RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage. A 4500mAh battery keeps the lights on for up to 10 hours when you are away from the plug. While that might seem very much like your average Android smartphone’s specifications, the JOI Book SK3000 runs Windows 10 Pro.

With support for just about any Windows app out there, the JOI Book SK3000 is perfect for those who are always on the go yet cannot settle for an Android-based device. The JOI Book SK3000 is easy to carry around with a small 12.5″ FHD display, while weighing just 1.05kg and also measuring less than 15mm, letting you slip it into any bag and bring it with you everywhere effortlessly.
