Lenovo has had a very unremarkable run in the smartphone market. Most of their products did not make an impact on consumers. The only thing Lenovo is remembered for in the smartphone world was their acquisition of Motorola in October of 2014. Now it seems Lenovo is determined to change that and make a name for itself in the gaming smartphone category. Lenovo Legion is an all-out gaming smartphone. It is so gamer that it doesn’t even have a portrait mode. The specs of the device are so over the top that even Asus ROG phones will have to take notice.

 

SPECS:

  • Screen – 6.67 inch AMOLED 
  • 144 Hz refresh rate
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 865
  • 128GB with 8GB Ram, 512GB with 12GB Ram
  • UFS 3.0
  • Dual Primary Camera: 64MP and 16MP
  • Pop up front camera
  • 5000mah battery with 90W fast charging
  • Dual Type-C ports
  • Dual Front Speakers
  • Liquid Cooling

 

Just by the specifications itself, it seems that the Lenovo Legion is going to batting for the top place in the mobile gaming paradise. Right now there are very few mobile devices that are ruling in the gaming category. The most obvious one is the Asus ROG Phone that is due for a refresh. Then there is the Xiaomi Blackshark which hasn’t been very popular and lastly the Nubia Red Magic by ZTE which has had some success since it positioned itself as the most bang for the buck option in the mobile gaming world. Looking at the competition only the Asus ROG line of gaming phones is going to be somewhat of a serious threat to the Lenovo Legion.

This was done by Asus ROG Phone as well when it was launched for the first time. The Lenovo legion smartphone will also have liquid cooling that Lenovo is claiming will be the most superior yet. There are two type-c USB ports on the smartphone. One on the bottom and one on the side to ensure that your gaming sessions are seamless while you charge the device. Lenovo has confirmed that the Lenovo legion smartphone will have 90W fast charging which is unheard of in the smartphone world.

Lenovo has already released a photo showcasing the accessories that the Lenovo legion smartphone will support. Just like the Asus ROG Phone, there are tons of accessories from the start. The Lenovo legion smartphone will have a refresh rate of 144hz which is not surprising anymore but its good to see that the device has it. Most of the images floating around the internet showcase the smartphone being sideways which is how Lenovo is targeting it. It is a gaming device first and the phone is just an added afterthought.
