Qualcomm and Lenovo have teamed up and unveiled the world’s first 5G PC. The first Snapdragon-powered 5G PC with Lenovo is dubbed as Project Limitless.
Qualcomm made the announcement at its Computex press conference. The nano thin and multi-purpose platform is for PCs that offer 5G connectivity. Lenovo will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx Compute Platform, which is deigned to support both 5G and 4G connections. The platform is combined with the Qualcomm Adreno 680 GPU with the Qualcomm Kryo 495 CPU combined with 10MB of L3 cache and large shared system cache. Qualcomm claims that the battery in this device can last for several days on a single charge.
Snapdragon 8cx features two modems, the X24 LTE modem supports 22 LTE. The X55 5G modem offers blazing fast speeds. Lenovo has also added a Snapdragon X55 5G modem that assures download speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps.
The first 5G laptop will sport a 13-inch display featuring full-HD resolution. Lenovo claims that this laptop is as thin and light as Lenovo’s Yoga series. The Yoga series already houses the new Snapdragon 8cx processor, it comes in the same chassis design as the previous generation. However, it is a super thin and light laptop. The only downside of the older version was responsiveness. The high turbo performance in this 5G laptop aims to solve some of the known issues from the previous versions.
Lenovo says that it will equip the 5G laptop with up to 16 GB of RAM, PCIe or USF 3.0 SSD of up to 1TB capacity. There is no official confirmation yet on the date, price or launch countries of the 5G laptop.
