Acer Announces New Spin 7 Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G Compute Platform. #ACER #IFA20

Acer today announced its new Spin 7 convertible notebook that offers a bold new take on productivity, with blazing-fast 5G connectivity supporting both mmWave and Sub-6 frequencies. Powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 8cx Gen 2 5G compute platform, the 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. Just 1.4 kg light and 15.9 mm thin, the steam blue device sports a luxurious magnesium-aluminium alloy chassis for a sleek, professional look.

“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 multi-day use.”

 

 

Always-On, Always Connected

The new Spin 7 features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx 5G Gen 2 compute platform that offers extreme battery life and connectivity. Aside from the immersive visual experience offered by the device’s Full HD IPS[3] display, integrated Qualcomm Aqstic™ audio technology delivers high-fidelity sound for a surround-sound experience. The Windows 10 Pro device boasts up to an incredible 24-hours of battery life1, offering multi-day usage, while a fingerprint sensor supports more secure logins through Windows Hello.

 

Stay Connected On-the-Go With 5G Connectivity

The new Spin 7 notebooks include a Qualcomm X55 5G modem, supporting both mmWave and sub-6 frequencies. Support for the sub-6 spectrum provides users with a reliable data connection, while the mmWave spectrum technology enables users to take advantage of the fastest 5G speeds possible when the correct infrastructure is available. In more practical terms, the speed, low-latency and independence offered by 5G means that the Spin 7 is capable of keeping up with the demands of modern business. As remote work becomes increasingly prevalent and workforces become spread out, high-speed 5G ensures that users will always be able to stay connected for efficient productivity on-the-go.

Four Distinctive Form Factors

The Spin 7’s design goes beyond its attractive form and seeks to empower users with a variety of form factors: notebook, tablet, tent, and presentation modes. These form factors are made possible by Acer’s 360-degree hinge design, which also slightly elevates the chassis while in notebook mode to offer a more ergonomic typing experience. The notebook’s chassis also 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.

Ultraportable for Style-Conscious Professionals

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-aluminium 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. This attention to detail extends to the notebook’s 14-inch Full HD IPS display, which covers 100% of the sRGB gamut, allowing for vivid and sharp colours.

Antimicrobial Solutions for a Safer Computing Experience

The touch screen is covered by a layer of Corning® Gorilla® Glass. A BPR & EPA-compliant silver-ion antimicrobial agent in the coating on the surface of the top base of the device (keyboard + touchpad) 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.
