Acer Announces Spin 7 -World’s First Notebook Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G compute platform
Acer today announced its new Spin 7 convertible notebook that offers a bold new take on productivity. The Acer Spin 7 is the world’s first notebook powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G compute platform, which supports both mmWave and sub-6 GHz 5G frequencies, enabling users to stay connected on-the-go and harness the blazing speeds of 5G. The Acer Spin 7 notebook features a 360-degree hinge that allows users to choose a form factor that suits the task at hand, whether that’s typing a document in clamshell mode or taking notes on the device’s touchscreen in tablet mode.
The new Spin 7 notebook utilizes the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G compute platform with the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System, which supports 5G connectivity across both mmWave and sub-6 GHz frequencies with download speeds up to 7.5 Gbps. The touch screen is covered by a layer of Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass. A BPR & EPA-compliant silver-ion antimicrobial agent in the coating on the keyboard, touchpad and surrounding surface is proven to show a consistently high microbial reduction rate against a broad range of bacteria under the JIS Z 2801 & ISO 22196 test protocol.
The new Spin 7 features the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G compute platform, which enables extreme battery life and premium entertainment experiences. Paired with the device’s Full HD IPS display, the integrated Qualcomm Aqstic echo noise cancellation and noise suppression (ECNS) technology supports high-fidelity sound for an immersive experience.
This Windows 10 Pro device also has an incredible battery life, and sips power when in standby, meaning users may experience multi-day usage without reaching for a power cord. A reliable fingerprint sensor supports more secure logins through Windows Hello, giving users peace of mind. Users can also connect securely over cellular 4G/LTE and 5G without relying on unsecure public Wi-Fi.
The notebook’s chassis houses an Acer Active Stylus, a rechargeable stylus with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity that employs Wacom AES 1.0 to offer users an authentic sketching or note-taking experience on the device’s touch screen. The Spin 7 is a 14-inch convertible notebook designed for style-conscious professionals, featuring a polished-looking steam blue chassis offset by gold accents. A magnesium-aluminum alloy body allows the body to measure in at just 1.4 kg and 15.9 mm thin, making it portable enough to practically disappear into a backpack or briefcase.
