Acer Spin 7: India’s first 5G laptop launched with Snapdragon 8cx chip: The 5G network is not yet available in the country, but almost every smartphone brand has launched multiple 5G handsets since last year. However, this time after various types of 5G smartphones, 5G laptops also entered the Indian market. Popular Taiwanese laptop maker Acer today launched the first 5G laptop in the Indian market, dubbed the Acer Spin 7.
Let the readers know, this laptop was first announced at the IFA 2020 event last year, where it was reported that it will have a second-generation version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx chip. This chip is the equivalent of Apple’s ARM-based M1 chip and was first seen on Microsoft’s Surface devices. However, let us know the details about this first 5G laptop in India i.e. Acer Spin 7.
Specification and availability of Acer Spin 7 laptop:
First of all, the Acer Spin 7 is a convertible laptop that weighs just 1.4 kg and has a touch screen of 14 inches. It is about 15.9 mm thin and has a magnesium-aluminum alloy body. Buyers will also find special Wacom AES 1.0 pens like the Microsoft Surface Pen or the Apple Pencil, which can withstand pressure sensitivities up to 4,096 degrees.
Speaking of other features, just like the announcement of the IFA 2020 event, this new laptop has a Snapdragon 8cx chipset and supports both Sub-8 GHz and MimiWave 5G (5G) frequency connections. Qualcomm’s Kryo 495 octa-core CPU is used inside the Snapdragon 8cx, so it has a maximum clock speed of 3 GHz. However, since the 5G network is not yet available in this country, customers can now use their LTE mobile data regularly by inserting their SIM card in the specified slot of this 5G supported laptop.
Note that this laptop has a mobile-first chipset so it does not require separate cooling technology; As a result, there is no fan in it. But if the processors are too hot, there is a possibility of throttle resistance, which means that it can be difficult to perform extremely heavy work on this laptop. Interestingly, this Spin 7 laptop can be purchased through the brand’s own stores, online stores, and retail outlets and will cost Rs 1,34,999.
