Lenovo and Qualcomm have demonstrated at Computex tech show in Taiwan the ultra-portable Lenovo laptop dubbed “Project Limitless”, which is the first PC with the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem that is able to connect to a 5G network.
Lenovo said it sees a huge growth potential of 5G by enabling smarter, modern computing through the promise of faster, always-connected PCs, and more immersive connectivity and sharing.
“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 for the consumer business of intelligent devices group at 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.”
Qualcomm said Snapdragon 8cx, the most extreme Snapdragon ever, supports immersive user experiences and will meet the needs of highly mobile users with multi-gigabit data speeds, long battery life, enterprise applications, and security-rich capabilities – even in thin form factors, including laptops.
With Project Limitless, mobile multi-taskers and digital natives will enjoy the mobility of a smartphone without a WiFi connection or a hotspot on the familiar productivity features of their PC, according to Lenovo.
