Earlier this year at CES 2020, the company announced the Yoga 5G 2-in-1 convertible laptop. The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx platform. Itâ€™s the Qualcomm first high-end ARM-based SoC totally focused on â€œAlways On, Always Connectedâ€ PCs. For that reason, the Lenovo Yoga 5G also came with a special version of Microsoftâ€™s Operating system dubbed Windows 10 on ARM. The same OS we have on the Microsoft Surface Pro X and Samsung Galaxy Book S.
However, unlike the Surface Pro X and Galaxy Book S, the Yoga 5G came with 5G NR support. Now, Lenovo has announced a partnership with Verizon to introduce the Yoga 5G to the United States but this time around, it carries the Lenovo Flex 5G moniker.
Lenovo Flex 5G Specifications
The Lenovo Flex 5G comes with a 14-inch display that is offered in both Full HD and UHD resolutions. The display features a 16:9 aspect ratio, and is rated at 300nits of brightness as well. Under the hood, youâ€™ll get aÂ Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cxÂ 5G processor paired with 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and an Adreno 680 GPU. For storage, you can configure the laptop with up to 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage.
As the specs suggest, this laptop isnâ€™t aimed at people who need intense processing power or gaming capabilities. This is more of a on-the-go laptop, thanks to its 5G connectivity and the 24 hour battery life that Lenovo claims. The laptop has a 60Whr battery pack.
The Lenovo Flex 5G also comes with a 720p webcam with a privacy cover. Moreover, you get an additional IR camera, and a fingerprint scanner for Windows Hello logins. For connectivity, you get Bluetooth 5, two USB-C ports, a SIM card slot for 5G, and a headphone/mic combo port.
Lenovo Flex 5G Price and Availability
The Lenovo Flex 5G comes with a starting price at $1,399 in the US. It is exclusively available for purchase through Verizon, starting June 18. Meanwhile, the laptop will be available in other global markets later this year.
