Will Snapdragon 835 supported in the near future?


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)?


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


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?

Please check this out.


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.
