Acer debuted at IFA 2020 the Acer Spin 7 convertible laptop / tablet with a welcome feature.
Under the hood, it’s fitted with Qualcomm’s new 8CX2 chip, Acer being the first company to use the newly-unveiled chipset.
However, it’s the surface level that will make it attractive to a lot of buyers.
Beyond the fully-articulated hinge and sleek design, the Acer Spin 7 is coated in antimicrobial layers.
The company says the touch screen is protected by Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass, while the keyboard, touchpad and the surrounding surface is covered in a BPR & EPA-compliant silver-ion antimicrobial agent.
With safety features out of the way, let’s look at the other Acer Spin 7 specs.
This convertible laptop / tablet has a 14-inch LCD display with a fingerprint scanner, has Qualcomm’s 8cx2 5G chipset that supports both LTE and 5G networks, and also uses Qualcomm’s Squistic noise cancellation to give you better quality for video calls.
All this is available in a package weighing just 3.09 lbs, with a 15.9 mm thickness when closed.
The Acer Spin 7 chassis is made out of a magnesium-aluminium alloy with a blue-ish finish and has a slot for holding and charging the active stylus.
Right now the rest of the specs are unknown but we expect to find out more this fall.
Until then, Acer promises that the “multi-day battery life, superior performance, AI acceleration, enhanced camera and audio technology, and enterprise-grade security features that the platform enables will deliver cutting-edge experiences and boost productivity.”
