Extreme battery life with Snapdragon X55 modem

Cristiano Amon, President of Qualcomm, just announced that the Snapdragon 8cx Always-Connected PC platform will get a 5G version. The Snapdragon 8cx SoC is matched with the Snapdragon X55 modem to support SA, NSA, and up to 7Gbps downloads speeds.

And Windows 10 on ARM newest addition has been announced by Lenovo. Lenovo confirmed that it will launch a 5G Snapdragon 8cx-equipped system at a later date. The Snapdragon 8cx is expected later this year in 7nm and features a very powerful eight-core A76-based Kryo 495 CPU cluster and the biggest Adreno 680 GPU launched to date.

Rene Haas, President of IP Product Group at ARM, mentioned aspirations for the enterprise market and said it was a quite an extraordinary experience to use it in the UK train system while going from WiFi to LTE seamlessly. An experience similar to a smartphone one is what everyone is aiming at.

The Always-Connected Qualcomm PC worked for the whole flight from London to Tokyo and had  80 percent battery left. I can personally confirm its incredible battery life with more than 20 hours possible with typing and video work.

The 5G attachment is a logical step forward and since the 3rd generation 5G modem will get integrated later this year in the new MSM SoC application processor that follows the 855 on the mobile, we expect that a similar solution will be a part of the Always-Connected PC SoC future too.
