Lenovo's new Yoga 5G, which the company showed off at CES today, is the world's first 5G PC. The convertible sports Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 8cx platform. Thanks to its nine individual antennas, the Yoga 5G can connect to 5G networks around the world for speedy internet on the go.

The world is moving at a faster pace every day, and Lenovo is hoping to keep people connected as they stay on the move. Enter the Lenovo Yoga 5G, which the company states is the “world’s first 5G PC.” 

The 2-in-1 convertible is the first PC powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx 5G platform, which allows it to connect to 5G networks available throughout the world. The Yoga 5G houses nine antennas to help 5G connections stay rock solid for users that need fast internet access while on the go. The Qualcomm SoC will also have an onboard Adreno 680 GPU, so the laptop should be able to handle streaming web content and office work without issue.

Taking the Yoga 5G on the go should be a snap. The laptop weighs 1.3 kg, or 2.86 lbs, and sports a 14-inch FHD IPS touch display with support for Lenovo’s digital pens. The touchscreen boasts a 400 nit brightness level, so working in most lighting conditions should be comfortable. 

Despite the 5G modem, Lenovo claims the Yoga 5G should get a “full day of battery life.” Of course, battery life varies based on use case, but the efficient Snapdragon chip beating at the machine’s heart should help keep the laptop’s battery from dying and taking the user’s workflow with it. The laptop will run Windows 10, though it is not clear at the time of writing if this is the standard Windows 10 or Windows 10 on ARM. 

The price of the Lenovo Yoga 5G has yet to be determined. The laptop should hit store shelves sometime this Spring.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
