Right after HP had announced the world’s first 5G computer at CES with the new HP Elite Dragonfly 5G, Lenovo too announced the world’s first 5G computer.
HP may launch their 5G laptop in February though, while Lenovo says they will release theirs during spring 2020 from $1499, so it sounds like HP could be the first to the market with a 5G laptop.
Lenovo’s 14-inch Windows 10 5G laptop is called Lenovo Yoga 5G, but it’s the same laptop that Lenovo teased during COMPUTEX 2019 in May as Project Limitless.
Lenovo Yoga 5G specs are lower than that of HP’s 5G convertible, as the Lenovo Yoga 5G is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx 5G chipset with Adreno 680 GPU, 8GB LPDDR4X RAM, and options of 256GB or 512GB storage.
The 14-inch touchscreen offers a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, with 400 nits brightness.
Additional features includes IR camera and fingerprint reader, digitizer support, 2x USB C ports, and a claimed battery life of 24 hours from the 60 WHr battery. Obviously you are not going to get a 24 hour battery life if you use 5G each of those hours, so this must be measured by the video playback standard.
