US chipmaker Qualcomm Technologies and China’s tech giant Lenovo Group have jointly released the world’s first Snapdragon-powered 5G PC prototype.

The new PC system, named Project Limitless, will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx 5G computer platform, the world’s first 7 nm platform purpose-built for PCs, said the American chipmaker.

The 5G PC will have super low latency and a battery that Qualcomm claims can last for several days on a charge. It could also “open the door to new, transformative user experiences for both consumers and enterprises,” Johnson Jia, Lenovo’s senior vice-president for PC business, said in a statement.

Qualcomm and Lenovo did not disclose further details about the price or the release date of the new PC system, but industry analysts predict that the new PC unit could be launched in early 2020.
