As expected, Lenovo today revealed the world’s first 5G PC powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx platform. First of all, this is not a commercial product which you can buy this year. Since Lenovo has not decided on the final name, this PC is called Project Limitless for now.
Thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem, you will be able to enjoy gigabit wireless speeds when connected to a 5G network. Qualcomm claims that Snapdragon 8cx will offer better performance than Intel Core i5 and will also offer more than double the battery life.
“At Lenovo, we don’t innovate for the sake of technology alone. Everything we do is about improving people’s experience,” said Johnson Jia, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Business of Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo. “With real 5G in a PC, it’s all about satisfying users’ need for speed: faster file transfers and streaming in 4K, 8K and even AR/VR; faster and higher quality video chats on-the-go; even faster screen refreshes for mobile gaming. When we say limitless connectivity, we mean it – 5G PC users the world-over will save time, stay productive, or get online entertainment from nearly anywhere, at any time.”
Project Limitless will be released in early 2020. You can expect Lenovo to provide more details during CES timeframe.
