Lenovo is well known for its Legion series of high-end gaming desktops and laptops. With brands like ASUS, Nubia, and BlackShark exploring the world of gaming-centric smartphones and coming up with devices like the ROG Phone and the Nubia Red Magic, it was only logical of Lenovo to expand their ‘Legion’ portfolio to encompass smartphones as well. In fact, the company seems to have been working on this device for quite a while now. We at MySmartPrice had talked about this new Legion smartphone nearly two months ago. Later, we posted another article after XDA Developers leaked a set of images of the device. Back then, we were aware of some of the specifications of this device. Today, this device, for the first time ever, has made its appearance on the website of Chinese certification agency 3C.
From the 3C documents below, it is clear that the Lenovo Legion gaming smartphone supports 45W fast charging. This also makes the likelihood of the phone shipping with a 45W charger in the box quite high. Also evident from the 3C listing is the fact that it shall support 5G networks ( which doesn’t really come as a surprise to us). Also evident from the documents is the model number of the phone — Lenovo L79031.
Thanks to previous leaks, we already know that the Lenovo Legion gaming smartphone will feature a 90Hz display with support for 144Hz touch sampling rate. The phone will come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and shall be offered in multiple RAM and storage options. Some of the design elements of the handset were quite unique, including a rather unconventional side-mounted pop-up camera.
Like many of its competitors, the Lenovo Legion gaming phone is also likely to feature twin USB Type-C port so that users can charge the device while gaming non-stop. The device is also rumored to feature a dual-camera setup at the rear consisting of a 64MP primary camera and a 12MP secondary ultra-wide-angle camera. The device will also use a 20MP side-mounted pop-up camera at the front for selfies and video calls.
The device will most likely run a heavily customized version of Lenovo’s ZUI that will be based on Android 10. Expect the phone to feature a lot of gaming-centric software features as well. There is still no word as to when Lenovo plans to officially announce this new device. The 3C appearance could mean that a launch is just a few weeks away.
