Lenovo Flex 5G laptop, which will be released on June 18th for $1,399.99 as a Verizon exclusive at least in the United States as the world’s first 5G laptop.

Its name Lenovo Flex 5G suggests, 5G uses Lenovo’s 360-degree hinge, enabling it to transform through a laptop, tent, and tablet modes. The Windows 10 device also sports a 14-inch 1920×1080 IPS touchscreen
A Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx powers the Flex 5G clocked at 2.84GHz, making it one of the first laptops available with Qualcomm’s latest laptop chipset. And has 8GB of LPDDR4X-1866 RAM and a 256GB SSD. Connectivity includes two USB-C ports and a 3.5mm audio jack. Lenovo says that the battery should last for up to 24 hours.
That’s except for the Qualcomm X55 5G modem — best recognized for enabling 5G-enabled mobiles like the Samsung Galaxy S20 or Motorola Edge Plus — which performs its laptop debut here, bringing support for not only LTE but both mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G networks, too.
Given that the Flex 5G is only beginning on Verizon, though, it’ll only be capable of taking advantage of the mmWave side of the spectrum.
That’s something that will suitable limit the usefulness of 5G on the device, given the very limited rollout for Verizon’s network (it’s currently only available in parts of 35 cities) and the reduced ability of mmWave to pass through walls and into buildings.
That’s unless you’re intending on using your laptop entirely outside in the various parks and street corners that are within Verizon’s coverage.
Lenovo claims this built-in support for 5G connectivity will allow the laptop to transfer download speeds of around 4Gb/s, which – if it manages – means you’ll be capable of downloading a full movie/Videos in just seconds.
