Windows 10 PCs with 5G Connectivity Coming Next Year

Intel today announced that Windows 10 PCs with 5G Connectivity is coming in 2019. Intel is partnering with Microsoft, Dell, Lenovo, and HP to bring 5G connectivity to Windows 10 PCs.

The new PCs and tablets will be powered by the company’s XMM 8000 series of commercial 5G modems. The chip maker says the 5G modems it’s building will also support 2G, 3G, and LTE.

Intel is showing off a prototype 2-in-1 detachable device powered by an early version of its 5G modem and its 8th gen Core i5 processors at MWC. The company is betting big on these 5G-connected PCs, though details are arguably scarce at the moment.

According to the company – “5G is not just another generation of wireless connectivity. It promises new opportunities for technology innovation across the computing and connectivity landscape from the cloud, to the network and the client”.

It will be interesting to see the battery life of these upcoming PCs. The upcoming Qualcomm’s ARM processors powered PCs are capable of providing up to 20 hours of battery life.
