Though the global infrastructure is still underway, there’s no doubt that 5G represents the future of connectivity. As a 5G-integrated world grows nearer and nearer, an increasing number of electronics manufacturers are diving headfirst into this emerging tech and rolling out an array of 5G-compatible gadgets. And the latest major player to venture into purpose-built 5G territory is Lenovo, which has just revealed the world’s first-ever premium 5G laptop.
Christened the Flex 5G, the laptop is reportedly good for download speeds as fast as 2GB per second — some 70% faster than the existing 4G standard. This lightweight laptop is equipped with a 14” FHD wide-angle touchscreen display and a battery that affords 24 hours of use per charge. Running Windows 10 Pro, the Flex 5G packs a 2.84GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx processor and Adreno 680 graphics card, 8GB of ram, and 256GB of storage. Other bells and whistles include Dolby Atmos-optimized speakers and an HD 720P camera with infrared facial recognition unlocking, as well as an optional fingerprint reader. Weighing less than 3lbs, the Flex 5G measures 12.71” x 8.54” and is only 0.58” thick, placing it on par with the world’s thinnest laptops. The 14” Lenovo Flex 5G Laptop is available now, with pricing starting at $1,500.
