Lenovo Legion Phone: Pre-order is now up, key specs confirmed


The Lenovo Legion phone is set to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ chipset and ultra-fast wireless charging.

Seven days ahead of its purported unveiling on July 22, the Lenovo Legion gaming smartphone’s landing page is finally up. And the best part is: The phone is also now available for reservation or pre-order in China.

Lenovo Legion Phone: Snapdragon 865+ chip and 90W Flash Charge

The said page revealed some of the key components the gaming phone will be arriving with. At the helm is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ chipset, which should make the phone as one of the pioneers of the American chipmaker’s latest offering. The other one is the ASUS ROG Phone 3.

Apart from the chipset’s vital inclusion, the onlookers are already aware that the phone will be launched as a “horizontally-oriented, gaming-centric handset.” This orientation is quite evident based on the aesthetics of the images on the landing page. Also, these were confirmed by the previous leaks.

Meanwhile, the Lenovo Legion phone is set to feature a mid-frame architecture. This aims to ensure that users will have a better grip on the device, alongside the much-needed cooling system. Besides, the handset is slated to pack a second USB-C port that should be placed on the long side.

With two USB-C ports, Lenovo’s 90W Super Flash Charge should fit in quite nicely. The fast-charging technology should top up both power cells simultaneously. The phone is tipped to arrive with a massive 5,000mAh battery capacity. The landing page also teased the phone’s dual X-axis linear motor for vibration.

AMOLED with 144Hz refresh rate

On the front, the mobile gaming device is speculated to feature a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen, with a resolution of 1,440 x 3,120 pixels. The page also confirmed that its display would arrive with a high 144Hz refresh rate, coupled with a 270Hz touch sampling rate. The screen is also tipped to be HDR10+-compliant.

A leaked video also provided the first glimpse at Legion OS, set to be based on Lenovo’s proprietary ZUI12. The latter is also based on the latest Android 10.

At some point, Lenovo hinted an arrival of a more capable Legion smartphone, only dubbed at the moment as the “Pro” edition. The variant is pegged to boast 16GB RAM + 512GB storage combination. The vanilla edition is listed with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.0 storage.
