Lenovo has become the first company in the world to announce a laptop powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform at the ongoing IFA 2018 trade show. The new Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS runs Windows 10 and supports standard Windows OS softwares and apps. The key benefits promoted by Qualcomm and Lenovo are its 25-hour battery life, ability to wake instantly from standby, and constant Wi-Fi connectivity. Lenovo is also citing data showing how people are online longer and more often than ever before, and how some people feel physically anxious or sick when running low on battery power, to illustrate the appeal of such a laptop.
The Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS weighs 1.2kg, and is 12.5mm thin. It has a 13.3-inch full-HD IPS touchscreen, and users can buy an optional Lenovo Pen to scribble and use Windows Ink features. There are two USB Type-C ports with USB Power Delivery and DisplayPort video output, as well as Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5, GPS, and stereo speakers. Buyers in different countries could have choices of either 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB or 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage. There’s a SIM card slot, and the integrated Snapdragon X20 LTE-A modem supports Cat 18 download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps and upload speeds of up to 150Mbps. It will ship running Windows 10 S.
