Powering a new era of computing.

With an Always Connected PC1 powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Compute Platform, your laptop lasts longer on a single charge2– productivity and entertainment that lasts for multiple days. And you’ll almost never be out of reach thanks to built-in connectivity to super-fast 4G LTE and 5G networks that support your on-the-go lifestyle. All wrapped up in a compact design that translates into sleek laptops that won’t weigh you down.

First we made your phone smart. Next up: your laptop.

You’re always connected. And with our Snapdragon Compute Platform, purpose-built for PCs, so is your laptop . We’ve also extended our legacy of innovative connectivity solutions to the PC industry—designed to power the next generation of 5G-capable PCs.

Multi-day Battery Life

Experience extraordinary battery life–up to multiple days on a single charge –with a 5G-capable, Always On, Always Connected PC powered by Snapdragon. That’s up to twice as long as typical laptops offer: 2x the battery life in active use mode, and up to 4-5x longer in connected standby  mode. The Snapdragon Compute Platform distributes workloads across the entire system—delivering the ultimate in power efficiency for a device that can run for days on a single charge.


Our Always On, Always Connected PC solutions deliver  powerful performance and productivity with eye-popping graphics, thanks to the Qualcomm® Adreno™ 680 GPU and the Qualcomm® Kryo™ 495 CPU–our fastest CPU yet.  The Snapdragon 8cx platform is designed to deliver immersive user experiences and performance while maintaining incredible battery life.


The Snapdragon 8cx Compute Platform lets OEMs build 4G/5G Always Connected PCs that deliver the lightening-fast connectivity of a smartphone. Featuring the Snapdragon X55 5G modem and our RF Front-end, this comprehensive solution brings 5G connectivity to even the thinnest form factor, including PCs. It supports fast 5G connectivity, enabling peak download speeds of up to 7Gbps without a Wi-Fi connection or hotspot. The modem supports Category 22 LTE, achieving peak downloads speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps. Plus, it’s compatible with virtually any band used by global operators in any region, so users can stay connected almost anywhere in the world. 


Outlast the competition with Always On, Always Connected PCs powered by Snapdragon. With reliable 4G LTE and 5G-capable connectivity, up to multiple days of battery life,  in a thin, light, and fanless design, your team can stay connected and productive from nearly anywhere, at any time of day. Build truly mobile PCs that deliver on the promise of ultra-fast 5G speeds while delivering greater performance—all in a sleek, slim design.

Always Connected, virtually all of the time. But this time, we mean your laptop.

As inventors, we’re proud to collaborate with other leaders to be first to announce a 5G-capable, Always Connected laptop. Our Snapdragon 8cx Compute Platform is the world’s first 7nm PC platform. And it’s the power behind Lenovo’s first 5G laptop, which is being designed to deliver on the promise of 5G.


For example, bandwidth-intensive tasks that involve downloading and uploading large files over a wireless connection could happen so seamlessly, it can be hard to tell the difference between local and remote storage. This is because of the Snapdragon platform’s impressive connectivity, performance and power efficiency.


If you’re working all day and streaming all night, the power-efficient Snapdragon 8cx platform has you covered with up to multiple days of battery on a single charge2.  So, get ready to experience transformative 5G experiences—from your Always On, Always Connected 5G PC.
