Lenovo is all set to launch its new gaming phone under the ‘Legion’ sub-brand on July 22. The handset – at least for the time being – is headed exclusively for the Chinese market and could see a global launch a few months down the line. Now, this is not the first time that we have talked about the Legion Gaming phone here on MySmartPrice, and there is a good chance that you might have read our previous news reports around the phone. In fact, we already know some of the key specifications of the device. The reason for today’s article? We have come across a listing on China’s popular e-commerce platform, JD.com, for the Lenovo Legion gaming phone, making it the first time that the handset has appeared outside of certification or benchmarking website. The listing itself, however, is unremarkable and does not reveal anything new about the phone. Take a look at some of the posters that have appeared on JD.com.
The posters reaffirm things we already know about the Lenovo Legion gaming phone – including the fact that it will come powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ 5G chipset- an overclocked version of the standard Snapdragon 865 chipset. We also know that the phone gets a 144Hz display. The poster also talks about support for 90W fast charging using USB -C. However, Lenovo has, in the past, known to add the battery charging speeds of wired and wireless methods to come up with ridiculous charging speed claims. At this time, we aren’t quite sure that’s the case this time around as well. We also know that the Lenovo Legion gaming phone will come in a variant that offers a colossal 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and offer up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. While we are not sure about the size of the display, there are indications that we are looking at an FHD+ panel here.
With ASUS also launching its ROG Phone 3 later this month, things look rather interesting as far as the gaming smartphone segment is concerned.
