Qualcomm SnapDragon 8cx

At Qualcomm’s event at MWC today, Lenovo announced its partnership with the company for its upcoming laptop. The laptop will run on Qualcomm’s 8cx architecture, which was announced last year at Qualcomm’s Tech Day. The laptop will use a x50 modem for 5G connectivity.

Why SnapDragon?

The main advantage of Snapdragon chips over traditional processors is battery life. Normally on laptops, it’s about five hours. SnapDragon devices will last all day without charging. Devices like Lenovo Yoga 630 use SnapDragon 850. They have support for both native 32bit or 64-bit programs and translated 32-bit X86 architecture.

However, further details regarding this product were not revealed. Since 5G is costly, we can estimate this to fall under the high-end segment. We can expect it to launch under the Thinkpad series. The Thinkpad lineup from Lenovo is extremely popular among business users.
