Acer has introduced the first 5G laptop in India with the launch of Acer Spin 7. The laptop will enter the country powered by a 2nd Gen Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx SoC and has a convertible design. The Spin 7 laptop was first seen at the IFA 2020 tech event and its arrival in India will create a new segment of laptops in the country.
Acer Spin 7 Features
Acer has equipped the Spin 7 machine with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G platform which is based on Kryo 495 octa-core CPU clocked at 3GHz speed. It comes with nine built-in antennas to serve the purpose of 5G connectivity. The laptop is paired with an Adreno 685 GPU, 8GB LPDDR4x RAM, and 512GB UFS storage.
Since no telecom operators in India have still commenced a 5G service, the Spin 7 laptop is enabled to support 4G networks for LTE mobile data connection.
