5G is set to be the next technological leap for all things internet connected. Smartphone manufacturers and telco companies are all gearing up for their devices to be ready for when 5G finally hits, presumably in 2020. That said, Lenovo and Qualcomm have partnered up for a device worthy of enjoying the wonders of 5G: a laptop.
Say hello to Project Limitless, the first 5G enabled laptop. Connecting through hotspots and wifi will be a thing of the past when this catches on. The laptop was announced by the two companies during Computex 2019. The Project Limitless prototype shows the sleekness of the device, being as thin as a Macbook air, with a 360 screen like the Yoga or Thinkpad X1 Carbon.
The main event is, of course, the limitless connectivity the laptop provides. To help out in that regard, the laptop is fully equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx platform which is powered by Kryo 495 CPU cores and the Adreno 680 GPU. The processor is also further supported by two modems, the X24 LTE modem and X55 5G modem. Along with 16 GBs of RAM, and you get a powerhouse for work and pleasure.
Just like 5G as a whole, there is no release date for “Project Limitless” just yet. Early hands-on previews of the laptop haven’t shown off the full extent of the 5G connectivity, but hopefully, we’ll see what “Project Limitless” really has to offer.
