Acer Spin 7 sports Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G

Acer recently announced the new Spin 7 convertible notebook. According to the company, this model hones in on productivity, with 5G connectivity supporting both mmWave and sub-6 GHz frequencies.

The new Spin 7 is powered by the cx Gen 2 5G compute platform. Also, the notebook features a 360-degree hinge. This allows users to choose a form factor that allows for the highest productivity deepening on the task. You will want to have a different angle for the notebook when typing than you would when using it as a touchscreen tablet. In total, the device measures in at 1.4 kg (3.09 pounds) and 15.9 mm thin (0.63 inches).

“We envision notebooks of the future to provide exceptional productivity and portability with human-centric design, ultra-long battery life, blazing-fast 5G connectivity and beyond,” said Jerry Kao, Co-COO, Acer Inc. “The new Acer Spin 7 is an Always On, Always Connected notebook capable of keeping up with the modern work-from-anywhere lifestyle with its sleek form factor supporting up to multi-day use on a single charge.”


The Spin 7 features the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G compute platform. According to Acer, this is important because it allows the notebook to improve its battery life and allow for “premium entertainment experiences,” Additionally, with the Spin 7’s Full HD IPS display, the device’s noise cancellation and noise suppression (ECNS) tech should allow for a pretty immersive experience. The notebook’s screen is a 14-inch Full HD IPS display covering 100% of the sRGB gamut. It’s also fitted with a layer of Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass.

“Where available, users can expect fast and reliable 5G connections. The speed, low-latency and independence offered by 5G connectivity means that the Spin 7 can keep up with the demands of modern business,” said Acer.
