Will Snapdragon 835 supported in the near future?

#1

May we hope that Manjaro MATE runs in the near future on the ASUS NovaGo TP370QL-EL003T 13,3" FHD Touch / Qualcomm Snapdragon / 4GB / 64GB or similar devices (Snapdragon 835)?

#2

Very unlikely.
Qualcomm Snapdragons have very small change of mainline support.

#3

So the following statements are misleading?
Ubuntu 18.04 Now Boots on Some Snapdragon 835 Arm Laptops
It's Becoming Possible To Run Linux Distributions On The HP/ASUS/Lenovo ARM Laptops

And whats about this Project?

#4

No, not misleading. It's surely possible to get Linux running on it.
I'm saying getting Manjaro ARM on it is not likely.
Manjaro ARM is primarily a mainline kernel distro, meaning that we concentrate on devices that run on the mainline Linux kernel.
Those devices probably run on a highly modified Linux kernel to support the hardware.
