The Lenovo Yoga 5G is a Qualcomm-Powered, 5G Capable Laptop

The next step for laptops

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx processor has appeared in laptops like Samsung’s Galaxy Book S, and Lenovo follows through with the Yoga 5G. As the name implies, it is one of the first ARM-powered Windows laptops to have 5G connectivity.

Paired with the Snapdragon 8cx is Qualcomm’s X50 5G modem, which means that the Yoga 5G supports both millimeter-wave and sub-6GHz networks, along with 4G LTE. Lenovo claims that the Qualcomm processor gives the Yoga 5G up to 24 hours of battery life, though the brand did not indicate if this is with 5G connectivity. While it has a NanoSIM slot, the Yoga 5G is one of the few laptops that has support for eSIMs.

5G and Qualcomm processor aside, the Yoga 5G comes with a 14-inch Full HD display and can be configured with 8GB RAM and 256GB or 512GB SSD storage. Ports on this laptop are basic, as you only get two USB-C ports and a headphone jack, on top of the NanoSIM slot.

The Yoga 5G will be available in Spring (March to July) with a starting price of $1500(~Php 76.5k).
