The buzz around Lenovo Legion smartphone has been developing for a while now. It’ll be the brand’s first gaming phone. Understandably so, its leaks and rumors thus far have been flamboyant.
For starters, it’s said to sport 144Hz display, stylish design, a staggering 90W charging support and an advanced cooling mechanism. That’s not all. There’s a lot more to unpack here. So, without further ado, let’s rundown the alleged specs and features.
Lenovo Legion: What we know so far
Beginning with the officially shared details – Lenovo Legion will ship with the Snapdragon 865 chip.
Now, that chip has the mettle to drive anything you throw at it. But, making things even more interesting, the phone is said to bring a “disruptive new architecture” which will take care of surface temperature differences and throttled charging speeds whilst gaming.

Another head-turning teaser was about the support for 90W wired dual fast charging on all the models. Yeah, there’s a chance that we might get multiple phones under the Legion umbrella.
Coming to the face, the Legion gaming phone will flaunt a notch-free display with a 144Hz refresh rate. The front camera is surprisingly residing within a side-mounted pop-up module. Yeah, it’s not on the top and that implementation is something unseen so far.
In a video, we got to see the phone’s secondary USB-C port flanked by the side frame. This would be used to charge the phone while held horizontally midst gaming sessions. Being a gaming rig, you could expect gamepads and other kinds of accessory support.
From the latest leaked marketing video, we have learned that the phone is capable of topping full from in 30 minutes. That is a 5000mAh dual-cell battery.
The marketing materials also boast features like dual X-axis linear vibration motor and a 65mm dual stereo speakers laid on the top & bottom portion of the screen.
Amongst other things, the rumor has it that Legion phone will bring UFS 3.0 internal storage, LPDDR5 RAM, FHD+ resolution (2340×1080) resolution, 270Hz touch sampling rate, Android 10, 64MP + 16MP dual rear cameras and a 20MP selfie snapper.
Although some of it is from official sources, still you’re advised to take them with a grain of salt.
Lenovo is a solid player in the laptop market and Legion happens to be a sought-after gaming brand. But, it hasn’t managed to translate the same success to mobile phone format. Its phones fall short in fame in contrast to Motorola (it’s subsidiary) phones. But now that it’s foraying into the gaming phone segment, it has our attention. After all, it’s better late than never, right?
