Lenovo has announced the launch of the Flex 5G, the first equipment from the Chinese firm with 5G, one of the first to hit the market with support for new mobile networks and the first in the world with support for 5G Ultra Wideband connectivity.
Lenovo Flex 5G is a Slim and lightweight convertible with 14-inch touchscreen, FHD resolution and a hinge that allows it to be rotated up to 360 degrees for laptop or tablet uses. So far, the usual Lenovo Flex or Yoga series. The big news is 5G.
The convertible debuts the Snapdragon 8cx 5G chipset. Unlike smartphone SoCs, Qualcomm says it has been specifically designed for next-generation personal computers that explore the concept of “always connected,” by not having to rely on wired or wireless connections under Wi-Fi.
Is the fastest CPU Qualcomm has ever made, with eight Kryo 495 cores, while 5G is supported with the Snapdragon X55. Lenovo promises full connection and huge autonomy, but has not spoken of its level of performance against Intel or AMD x86 processors. It has 8 Gbytes of RAM and UFS 3.0 storage of 256 or 512 Gbytes.
Lenovo Flex 5G uses premium materials for its chassis, with an aluminum lid and a aluminum magnesium alloy body. Its declared autonomy rises to -nothing less- than 24 hours of use. Its connectivity is also quite complete as you will see in its characteristics table, highlighting that network support that allows you to switch between 5G (including low band and ultra wide band), 4G or WiFi, for a complete connectivity experience.
