Lenovo’s first 5G-capable PC is ready to reach users, and Verizon customers will be able to get one starting June 18.The Flex 5G was announced at the CES show in January 2020 and is a $ 1,400 laptop that will hit stores later this week at Verizon, the first time that a U.S. operator sells a laptop capable of connecting to 5G wireless networks. The two-in-one computer features a 14-inch Full HD touchscreen that is capable of 400 nits of brightness, weighs 2.97 pounds (1.35 kg), and runs Windows 10 off Qualcomm’s 8cx computing platform with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. As with other Lenovo PCs, the Flex 5G can be used as a traditional laptop or with the screen folded down to become a tablet.
Other specs include a 720p HD infrared webcam to log in via Windows Hello, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Lenovo claims that the PC is capable of 24 hours of battery life on a single charge. Bluetooth 5.0 is available, but there is no support for the new Wi-Fi 6 standard . A one-year subscription to Microsoft 365 Personal, which includes Microsoft Office and 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage, is included with every purchase of Flex 5G on Lenovo.com or Verizon.
Lal Flex 5G is able to take advantage of the operator’s existing 5G millimeter wave network that is active in parts of 35 cities across the country. As with other recent Verizon 5G devices, you will also be able to use Verizon’s new low-band 5G broadband network when it launches later this year. Beyond the need to be in a city with 5G, those who want to take advantage of faster connectivity should be on Verizon’s new ‘5G Ultra Wideband Connected Device Plan’ for consumers. The plan costs $ 30 a month for those who already have wireless service through Verizon or $ 90 a month for those who don’t.
