Lenovo and Qualcomm’s 5G laptop handles faster file transfers, streaming in 4K and 8K, and offers longer battery life
A Lenovo ultra-portable laptop, showcased at COMPUTEX, is the first laptop with a Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem. A laptop that can connect to a super fast 5G network
“With real 5G in a PC2, it’s all about … faster file transfers and streaming in 4K, 8K and even AR/VR; faster and higher quality video chats on-the-go; even faster screen refreshes for mobile gaming…5G PC users the world-over will save time, stay productive, or get online entertainment from nearly anywhere, at any time,” said Johnson Jia, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Business of Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo.
The laptop is part of a new class of PCs that’s the outcome of Project Limitless, a years-long collaboration between Lenovo and Qualcomm to develop a new class of 5G-connected PCs that offer immersive connectivity and faster sharing.
With Project Limitless, mobile multi-taskers will enjoy the mobility of a smartphone, without a WiFi connection or a hotspot, but on the familiar productivity features of their PC.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx will meet the needs of highly mobile users with multi-gigabit data speeds, long battery life, enterprise applications, and security-rich capabilities–even in thin form factors, including laptops.
Such 5G-enabled PC experiences include (1) real-time translation when conversing with others around the world (ex. English speakers conversing with Mandaring-Speaking colleagues); and (2) film students collaborating online while editing video footage in real-time and then uploading the finished film almost instantly.
Lenovo’s ultra-portable 5G laptop paired with Snapdragon 8cx’s ultra-low latency and extreme performance is engineered to make these, and other, scenarios possible.
The next generation of always-on PC connectivity is here: Project Limitless is set to arrive in early 2020.Liked this post? Follow SwirlingOverCoffee on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.
