To come with a radical design
It’s no secret that Lenovo is set to launch its first Legion Gaming Smartphone. While we do not know the exact launch date, XDA Developers got hold of a promotional video for the Legion Gaming Phone and gathered a few screenshots.
Unlike its gaming laptops that go for a more subdued look, the Legion Gaming Phone will have a radical look. To start off, the rear panel has the Legion logo placed on the center, with the dual rear cameras (64-megapixel main camera and 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera) placed on the right side (when holding the phone in landscape mode). The Legion branding is right about the logo, and the seams surrounding it confirms that it will have a pop-up module housing a 20-megapixel front camera. Using the phone in landscape mode, the pop-up module appears right at the center. Using it in portrait mode, however, places the pop-up camera in an awkward position.
Going through the phone’s design, the Legion Gaming Phone will have two USB-C ports: one at the bottom (for when using the phone in portrait mode) and one at the side (when using the phone in landscape mode). There’s no headphone jack to be found, so you will most likely end up using USB-C earphones or TWS earbuds.
XDA Developers also confirm that the promo video reveals the Legion Gaming Phone’s insane 90w wired charging and dual-cell 5000mAh battery, though it is not clear if those charging speeds are possible with either USB-C port.
Going through the other specs, the Legion Gaming Phone will have full symmetrical 65mm dual speakers and a 3D cooling tower structure with dual heat pipe partitions. As a flagship gaming phone, the Legion Gaming Phone will have a Snapdragon 865 processor, UFS 3.0 storage, LPDDR5 RAM, a Full HD+ display with 144hz refresh rate and 270hz touch response rate, and Android 10 out of the box.
While these renders of the Legion Gaming Phone look rather outlandish, it is best to wait for the actual launch to see what Lenovo is up to with its first gaming phone.
