The Acer Spin 7 notebook with the Snapdragon 8cx CPU offers 5G support
- Acer has announced its Spin 7 convertible notebook.
- It has Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx CPU inside, with support for both 5G mmWave and sub-6 frequencies.
- A price and release date for the Spin 7 has not yet been announced
Acer is revealing a new member of its Spin family of convertible notebooks today, but this one is a bit different. The Windows 10-based Acer Spin 7 is powered by the second generation of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx CPU.
The Acer Spin 7 will use the ARM-based chip to support connecting the notebook to 5G wireless networks. The company claims that the notebook will be the first Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 notebook that will support both 5G mmWave and sub-6 frequencies. That should mean that the notebook should have no problems connecting at 5G speeds where they are currently available or will be in the future.
Since this is a convertible notebook, the display on board the Acer Spin 7 can rotate 360 degrees. That means it can be used in a variety of form factors, including notebook, tablet, tent, and presentation modes. Acer says the display is covered in Gorilla Glass, along with a special silver-ion antimicrobial coating. It also includes a Wacom AES 1.0 pen with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity for note-taking and drawing on the 14-inch display. The battery life for the 3.06-pound Acer Swift 7 is supposed to be “multi-day,” according to Acer .
The company unfortunately declined to offer a release date or a price point for the new Acer Swift 7 notebook. Hopefully, we will get that information in the very near future.
