Lenovo is all set to unveil its upcoming new gaming smartphone under the Legion branding on July 22. In anticipation of the oncoming launch, today the multinational electronics giant revealed some more information about the Legion gaming phone. The company has announced that the smartphone will feature a display with a refresh rate of 144Hz.
In February, Qualcomm disclosed a list of devices to feature its Snapdragon 865 SoC, including the Legion gaming smartphone. However, a recent announcement revealed that the phone will sport the latest Snapdragon 865+ 5G chip. Other confirmed features of the Legion gaming phone are scarce. Although an earlier report from Geekbench suggested that the device would pack a massive 16GB of RAM, the current page hints at a lower value of 8GB. It is also believed that the Legion gaming smartphone could support 90W charging.
While official images of the smartphone's design and looks are yet to be revealed, Lenovo did offer a glance at the upcoming device recently. The company gave away a free Legion gaming phone in a lucky draw and the winner made an unboxing video which was shared on Lenovo's official Weibo account for the gaming phone.
As seen in the video posted by the winner of the giveaway, the Legion gaming phone will feature a dark blue back which appears to be made of glass. A vertical line is seen running down the back of the phone and it seems to shift in the light. A vertical quad-camera setup is also visible on the back of the gaming device with a flashlight placed beside the row of lenses.
Technical specifications aside, the pricing details about the upcoming smartphone are also a mystery. More information about the Legion gaming phone will come to light once the device is officially unveiled on July 22, 2020.
