New Flex 5G laptop

A number of top smartphone models have 5G capabilities. But the PC world is largely devoid of a device in use that has that feature. Well, that’s set to change with the arrival of the Lenovo Yoga 5G in the U.S.

Starting June 18, you can buy the Lenovo Yoga 5G, according to Microsoft.   The laptop, which starts at $1,399.99, is the first PC in the world to support the fastest internet connectivity technology available today.

Lenovo Yoga 5G specs

Support for 5G is a potential game changer regardless of how you use Lenovo Yoga 5G or Lenovo Flex 5G. Its high-speed network connectivity could be up to 10 times (or more) faster than 4G, which would be ideal for downloading massive files.

As you might imagine, 5G should work great for video conferencing, live streaming, and file sharing too.

Microsoft adds:

Thanks to that platform, you can stay online with up-to-24-hours battery life. When secure, stable Wi-Fi isn’t available, the 5G network provides faster and more reliable connectivity options when streaming, real-time collaborating, video-chatting, gaming or file-transferring.

In addition, the Windows 10PC uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx 5G processor with a built-in modem. This microchip has become synonymous with 5G devices nowadays.

Lenovo says that the Flex 5G laptop comes with a 24-hour battery life. That’s a useful feature, especially when you need to stay connected and keep working for long hours while off the grid.

Apparently, the device’s current microchip boasts superior thermal efficiency compared with previous-gen Qualcomm processors. The feature enables it to save up to 60% of computing power. That’s how a fully-charged Lenovo Yoga 5G battery lasts 24 hours.

The laptop will be available in other select regions, including Europe and Asia, later this year.

Recently, Lenovo launched the Yoga Duet 7i and IdeaPad Duet 3i laptops.
