X1C7: Availability of Fibocom L860-GL with 2x2 MIMO?

2019-07-13, 16:15 PM

The X1C7 currently only has the Fibocom L850-GL, which doesn't have the superior 2x2 MIMO antenna.

 

While I'd like to wait for the availability of the L850-GL 2x2 MIMO option to show up, I noticed that it hasn't shown up on ANY of the other countries' sites i've checked, i.e. the UK, Japan, etc.

 

May I ask if any of the good folks here might shed some light as to when the L860-GL 2x2 MIMO option might be available please?

 

Thank you in advance.

Re: X1C7: Availability of Fibocom L860-GL with 2x2 MIMO?

 looking at the USA Lenovo site's X1C7 page, under connectivity, it lists for WWAN only this:

 

  • Optional WWAN: Fibocom L850-GL 4G LTE CAT9

 

the Fibocom L860-GL isn't even listed!

 

I am wondering if the L860-GL is no longer going to be offered at all?

 

This is important to me because this is the ONLY OPTION i'm still waiting for in order to customize and order my X1C7.  Now that the UHD option is available as are 16GB RAM/1TB SSD, i can order the X1C7 EXCEPT for waiting for the L860.

 

Any thoughts on whether or not Lenovo changed their minds or maybe the L860 is no longer available or no longer going to be offered?   How big a difference are the 850 vs the 860 anyway?

 

Thank you.

With all the posts about how Intel has gotten out of the mobile business and how uncertain the L860-GL appears to be, should we assume then that the L860 is vaporware and will likely not be available on the X1C7?

 

It's so confusing as to deciding whether or not to wait for the availability of the L860 option on the configuration/customization page before placing my order!  This is the ONLY thing holding me up at this point.

 

Hope someone knowledgeable about this can pitch in please.

 

Thank you.

Anyone else interested in and also waiting for the 2x2 antenna and MIMO features of the Fibocom L860-GL?

I held out the the Fibocom L860-GL and just got my order through!

I thought it was MIMO 3x3 or 4x4 - it uses 3 antennae
The L850 uses 2 antennae

 

Anyway, I hope it has better reception and higher speeds (that's what's promised)

This has NOT been solved...

Thanks for your info regarding the availability of the Fibocom 860 option on Lenovo Australia's website for customization!

 

That's great.

 

However, sadly, it still has not come to the US site yet.

 

May I ask if anyone knows when it will be available for customization on Lenovo's USA site please for customization?

 

Thank you.

 

(this has NOT been "solved" for all of us who are not in Australia!)
