Lenovo has announced that it will launch the Legion phone on July 22. The Chinese brand has been teasing its first gaming smartphone under the popular Legion brand for some time, where it provided information on what to expect from the next gaming phone. But the new ad provides more details, such as the Lenovo Legion Phone with the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor to offer next-generation games. Coincidentally, Asus launches the ROG Phone 3 in India on the same day and with the same chipset.
The release date was revealed by Lenovo in a post on Weibo, where it shared a poster of the Snapdragon 865+ chipset detailing the next Legion phone. The event starts at 19:30, Beijing time, which translates to 17:00 IST. The same day, at 20:15, is the launch of the Asus ROG Phone 3. Therefore, we can expect a confrontation between the two smartphones for games later this month. Lenovo said nothing about the availability of the Legion phone outside of China.
It will be a significant launch for Lenovo after years of efforts the company has made to exist in the smartphone industry. The various smartphones fell very quickly, not only in India and other international markets, but also in China. But, unlike its smartphones, Lenovo’s PC business thrives in China, India and other markets. The Legion line of high-end gaming laptops still has a place for you. The company is now using the Legion brand to bring its gaming smartphones to the top with the Asus ROG Phone and Nubia Red Magic.
Lenovo is betting on the most sophisticated Legion phone, including the premium Snapdragon 865+ processor, launched today as Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset to date. It has the best 5G modem and other connectivity features that will be more than enough for a gaming phone with the standards most similar to 2020. We can expect a high refresh rate on the screen of the Lenovo Legion Phone – something like 144Hz – and a resolution FHD +.
Previous leaks have suggested that the smartphone is better suited to hold vertically in your hand. That’s why the leaks showed the Legion phone with a pop-up camera on the side of the smartphone – in a very unusual environment. The AnTuTu benchmark site wasted what else you can expect from the Lenovo Legion phone. It can come with 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage. A report previously stated that there could be a 64-megapixel main camera, located in the center of the back of the smartphone, to facilitate vertical operation.
Lenovo is raising the stakes against big shots in the gaming phone market, with the next Legion Phone to debut in China this month.
