Lenovo has an extensive portfolio of handsets that it sells primarily in its home country of China. That’s where we find, for example, the Z6 Pro, with a quad camera and Snpadragon 855, the K10 Plus, much more basic, and the Tab M8 tablet.
Not satisfied with this, it seems that the company has decided to enter the segment of smartphones for gamers, and will do so using its brand Legion, which currently has equipment for the public gamer. It is something similar to what ASUS has done with its ROG (Republic of Gamers) brand, whose maximum exponent in the field of mobile phones is the ROG Phone II.
The Snapdragon 865 will be the brain of Lenovo’s new phones
If we think about gaming phones, names like Razer, Black Shark, Nubia Red Magic, Vivo IQOO and the aforementioned ASUS ROG quickly come to mind, but soon there will be one more brand to add to that list: Legion, Lenovo’s division dedicated to the gaming world, which has shared a publication on the social network Weibo (the Chinese Twitter) in which it makes clear its intentions to launch a smartphone aimed at that segment.
The phone, which the company calls its flagship eSports phone, will feature Qualcomm’s most advanced processor, the Snapdragon 865, and will be compatible with the 5G network. The publication also states that “it will live up to market expectations“.
Unfortunately, Lenovo has not shared further specifications of this future terminal or details about its launch. What we do know is that the Lenovo Legion Phone profile at Weibo was released in late December and Legion phones are now being sold everywhere outside of China.
