Lenovo looks like it could be the first with a 5G-powered laptop with the latest rumor from 91mobiles teasing a Lenovo rep that wanted to stay anonymous, that 5G laptops are coming later this year.


The source said that the company is working on multiple 5G-ready products for a big launch in Q4 2019, just in time for another big reveal by Qualcomm at its annual Snapdragon Tech Summit. We should expect the next big chip from Qualcomm that will succeed the Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon 855+ and what should resemble a proper line up of 5G devices, of which Lenovo will have plenty of.

Keep in mind that 5G isn't an instant standard, so don't go expecting these things to drop into the market and be dominant. But slowly over time, 5G will make its way into the mainstream like every other big push with 3G, 4G, 4G LTE, and so on.

Qualcomm is going to be at the center of it being the market leader in all the Gs but especially 5G, and remember Apple just acquired Intel's modem division for $1 billion with all 2020 iPhones to roll out with 5G according to the latest rumors.
