Lenovo releases the Flex 5G to the US market via its own site
Lenovo's Flex 5G is its take on the "Always On Always Connected" Qualcomm Snapdragon for notebooks platform. It is a 14-inch convertible with an FHD IPS display and 8GB of RAM that can be charged at up to 45 watts (W) via its type C ports, which also support DisplayPort and the USB 3.2 standard. It also now has a sales page on the OEM's US site.
The Flex 5G (or Yoga 5G, as it may be known in other markets) is not exactly new to this market: Verizon has also been listing it as a device with next-gen connectivity on its network. The 2-in-1 costs US$1399 through this vendor, whereas its first-party source has put it at a starting price of $1699.
The new non-Verizon version has the same specs as the one sold by Lenovo; however, the latter can use both mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G, whereas the former is stuck on the carrier's ultra-wide (UW) mmWave bands. Therefore, a buyer may be able to use it on more available mobile networks, at least. Otherwise, the Flex 5G supports Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0. It is available now from its new vendor.
