Lenovo has a new smartphone coming soon, one that carries its Legion gaming branding. In May, we saw a teaser from the company, as well as some leaked promotional materials. The Legion smartphone is a gamer-centric device intended to be used horizontally.
The smartphone has now strolled through China’s 3C with a model number L79031. The only pieces of information listed aside from the model number are the charger specifications, and that it’s a “5G Mobile Phone”.
The charger included with this device only goes up to 45W even though earlier teasers suggested the phone will support 90W charging. It is also expected that there will be multiple variants of the Legion phone, but the company confirmed back in April that all variants would have 90W charging.
Other leaked specs of the Legion phone include a 144Hz refresh rate display (with a touch sampling rate of 270Hz), UFS 3.0 internal storage, LPDDR5 RAM, and a centrally placed camera setup with 64MP main shooter and a 16MP ultrawide unit. There’s also a front-facing camera with a 20MP sensor, and the front camera pops out of the long edge of the phone, which adds to the whole “using the phone sideways” theme.
Silly Lenovo to put a Core i3 variant though. That CPU is seriously slow.
