Lenovo Flex 5G

To empower mass adoption of ultra-fast, low-latency laptop connectivity, Lenovo is partnering with Verizon, EE, Sunrise and CMCC. These mobile network operators are committed to making 5G computing a reality for consumers around the world.

These collaborations follow the unveiling earlier this year of the Lenovo Yoga 5G (known as Lenovo Flex 5G in the U.S.) — the world’s first 5G PC in market [1]. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx 5G compute platform, this convertible laptop with Windows 10 delivers high-speed 5G network connectivity (through a 5G service provider) – up to 10 times faster than 4G [2].

Thanks to that platform, you can stay online with up-to-24-hours battery life [3]. When secure, stable Wi-Fi isn’t available, the 5G network provides faster and more reliable connectivity options when streaming, real-time collaborating, video-chatting, gaming or file-transferring.

The Lenovo Yoga 5G/Flex 5G will have 5G network coverage starting in the U.S. and select markets in Europe and China.

You can buy the Lenovo Yoga 5G/Flex 5G starting June 18 in the U.S. online at Verizon for $1,399.99. For those in the U.S., a one-year Microsoft 365 Personal subscription is included with the Flex 5G through lenovo.com and Verizon.

Later this year, the Lenovo Yoga 5G is expected to be available through Lenovo.com in select geographies and through EE in the U.K., Sunrise in Switzerland and CMCC in China. Each mobile network operator will share more details on pricing, availability and 5G data plans.
