In the last few years, Lenovo’s Legion gaming brand has had some big success. The company has since been exploring ways to expand its business, and it has recently become apparent that Lenovo is using its Legion gaming brand to encourage mobile gaming.
Lenovo Legion’s mobile gaming smartphone will be Lenovo’s first-ever gaming phone. The company confirmed that the Snapdragon 865 processor is used to provide high-end gaming experience.
GizmoChina reported an alleged media image of a Lenovo Legion phone which first was posted on Weibo. While there’s not much to see, Lenovo’s Legion branding is specifically unique to identify in the mobile gaming industry.
The 7 mm Snapdragon 865 octa-core chipset consists of four ARM Kryo 585 Cortex-Cortex bases, three cores with a maximum clocking frequency of 2,4GHz, one with a maximum capacity of 2.84GHz.
A strong Adreno 650 is responsible for the graphics requirements. The chip can accommodate up to 4 K 60GHz resolution, the Quad HD+ 144Hz refresh rate, the color gamut Rec202, the HDR10, and HDR10 +. Both CPU and GPU performance is up to 25% higher than their predecessors.
The 2020 features including 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.0 or 3.1 storage can also be expected from the Lenovo Legion game phone.
Lenovo may try to lower costs, but with the high-end Snapdragon 865, there is limited space to cut specimens. One of Lenovo’s fields is VR. The play telephone rivals have not gone as far into VR as Lenovo.
Lenovo developed Windows Mixed Reality headsets and could still use a phone in a headset. Even the Oculus Quest runs on a Snapdragon 835 chipset. The Legion chipset would provide considerably more power and could create an interesting product coupled with some Lenovo know-how in VR.
