Verizon will launch the first 5G laptop for its Ultra Wideband network this week, which will complement the offering of its new 5G Ultra Wideband Connected Device Plan, starting at US$30 a month. The Lenovo Flex 5G is outfitted with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx 5G compute platform and, according to the operator, can download files at up to 2 gigabits per second.
Snapdragon 8cx 5G provides powerful graphics and performance, multi-day battery life and multi-gigabit connectivity speeds, thanks to the integrated Snapdragon X24 4G and Snapdragon X55 5G modem-RF system.
The new device also has a battery that lasts up to 24 hours, can switch between Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband, 4G and Wi-Fi connectivity and enterprise-grade security features like Windows Hello and an integrated IR camera designed to recognize its user.
