Back at CES last January, Lenovo unveiled the world’s first 5G Ultra Wideband laptop, the Flex 5G (known as the Yoga 5G outside of the US). And now, the company has announced that it’s partnering with Verizon and other 5G providers to bring the laptop to market.
The 5G service providers which Lenovo will be working with include Verizon, EE, Sunrise, and CMCC. The company will be making Flex 5G units available for purchase through these providers in the US, UK, Switzerland, and China.
The Flex 5G features the industry’s smallest 5G module which will help users experience up to ten times faster speeds compared to 4G, while maintaining a light (under 3lbs), convertible, 2-in-1 form factor. Powered by the Snapdragon 8cx 5G compute platform chipset, this 14-inch device also boasts of a number of features that make it a highly capable laptop. And not only that, but the Flex 5G is claimed to be equipped with a 24-hour battery life.
The Lenovo Flex 5G will be available in the US starting June 18 and can be purchased online through Lenovo’s website, or Verizon’s website for $1,399.99. Verizon also offers a payment plan that costs $58.33 a month for 24 months. Purchases will include a free year of Microsoft 365 Personal.
The Flex 5G will also be available for purchase through EE in the UK, Sunrise in Switzerland, CMCC in China, and select countries later on this year. Global availability with more network operators may follow later on in the year as well.
