Acer has announced its first 5G-enabled laptop at IFA 2020. The Acer Spin 7 is not only Acer’s first 5G-enabled laptop, but also the first laptop with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8X Zen2 processor.
What is Acer Spin 7?
The Acer Spin 7 is an upgraded version of the existing model, with most of the processors getting a power boost.
The Spin 7 is the first laptop to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 CX Gener 2 chip, providing support for both the MMWave and the Sub-65G spectrum. The Acer Spin 7 will include a 4,096 pressure-sensitive walkum pen that docks to the side of the laptop, which works well when you switch the laptop to 360-degree hinge in tablet mode.
You’ll also find a 14-inch IPS FHD touchscreen panel with antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass, two USB-C ports, and a functional USB-A port for older devices.
Another thing to note is battery life. Acer believes that the Spin 7 battery is good for “multi-day” use. The combination of advanced Snapdragon processor and battery technology means your laptop lasts several days on a single charge. Of course, these claims always depend on the level of usage and the apps you use, but the possibility of a long-lasting battery will make it more attractive to buyers.
The Spin 7 weighs just 3.09lbs and is 0.63-inches thin one minute. The combination of size, weight and battery life will make the spin traveler a great possibility for travelers, businessmen and students.
When is Acer Spin 7 available?
Unfortunately, Acer has not yet set a specific release date for Spin 7. There is also no price point for release.
At IFA 2020, Qualcomm hinted that devices using Snapdragon 8 CX Gener 2 processors would arrive later in the year, so it shouldn’t wait too long for Spin 7.
