EE is bringing the world’s first 5G connected PC to the UK later this year, and it looks pretty awesome!
With EE currently leading the way with 5G coverage, it makes perfect sense for the network to get behind the Lenovo Yoga 5G 2-in-1 laptop, which is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx 5G computing platform.
With 5G connectivity, it can offer network speeds up to 10 times faster than 4G, and Qualcomm’s connected computing platforms are already well-known for offering excellent battery life.
Also known in the US as the Lenovo Flex 5G, the Yoga 5G comes with a 14-inch Full-HD IPS touchscreen display, pushing out 400 nits of brightness. It also flips over to turn the device into a tablet, with the ability to use a digital pen.
An Adreno 680 GPU and user-facing stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos adds to an impressive package, with the intelligent power management doing away with the need for a noisy fan.
For security there’s a choice of a hands-free IR camera or integrated fingerprint reader.
Perhaps the most impressive feature is the battery life, which Qualcomm states is capable of going for up to 24 hours between charges.
The Yoga 5G has no less than nine built-in antennas (Sub 6 and mmWave is supported), with download speeds maxing out at around 4Gbps.
Sure, you’re not going to get that in the real-world, but you’re not exactly going to complain at a quarter of that – and speeds of 1Gbps aren’t pie-in-the-sky figures either.
EE is yet to publish a release date or price, but as a guide the US version retails for US$1,399.99 as a standalone ‘SIM-free’ price.
Lenovo is also selling the Yoga 5G in Switzerland and China with network connections, and select countries without a connection from Lenovo.com.
