Even though it is not the manufacturer’s intention to boost this market, the Snapdragon Dev Kit can give others an idea of ​​what a mini PC with the new chip would be like. This could open doors for others who wish to build smaller computers with the processor, bringing even greater diversity to the market.

Another important point worth mentioning is that Qualcomm does not restrict the acquisition of its Snapdragon Dev Kit. Even with the focus on development, anyone can purchase one and use it – as if it were a regular computer.

The manufacturer states that it will be available for sale on June 18, 2024 and the “mini PC” will be sold for $899.
