Lenovo launches IdeaPad 5G laptops based on the Snapdragon 8CX chipset

At the 2021 International Consumer Electronics Show, Lenovo brought a new device equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8CX chipset. The device supports a 5G network connection and can last up to 20 hours.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8CX chipset is an ARM chipset previously launched by Qualcomm, which is based on the ARM micro-architecture but is indeed released for desktop platforms.

Currently, the number of terminal devices equipped with this chipset is relatively small, but this time Lenovo has launched a new device equipped with this chipset, which is really surprising. Because the performance of the chipset is relatively ordinary but the power consumption is indeed lower.

This new device is called Lenovo IdeaPad 5G, using Qualcomm Snapdragon 8CX chipset, with Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 baseband to provide 5G and LTE high-speed connection.

The graphics adapter uses Qualcomm Adreno 680 chip, which can be matched with 8GB LPDDR4X memory and a 512GB PCIe solid-state hard drive.

Thanks to the ARM micro-architecture, the power consumption of the device is relatively low. Lenovo said that the continuous video playback time of the IdeaPad 5G version can reach 20 hours.

At the same time, Lenovo provides Dolby audio and dual-array microphones, so that consumers can enjoy the best experience whether they are watching videos or making audio and video calls.

The body thickness is only 14.9 mm, and the overall weight is only 1.2 kg. It provides a 51 WHr battery and supports extended fast charging technology to greatly reduce the charging time of the device.

The interface provides a USB-C interface that can be used as a laptop to charge or power other devices, and some applications such as Alexa are also pre-installed.

Lenovo said that the device will go on sale from the 2021Q2 quarter and will provide multiple different configuration versions, but Lenovo has not disclosed the specific price.
