The Lenovo Legion is the first 5G gaming cellphone, and we now have each purpose of considering that it will have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset onboard. An alleged press picture of a Lenovo Legion telephone (under), first posted on Weibo, was shared by GizmoChina. Whereas there is not a lot to see, it is Lenovo’s Legion branding, which is particular to gaming merchandise.
We have already seen loads of firms supply fancy gaming phones that dial up the clock speeds or show 120Hz refresh charges; however, we’ve not seen one, but that may connect with the following-gen 5G networks.
Presumably, the Lenovo Legion gaming cellphone will include other gaming-centric specs. Lenovo could add some particular cooling to supply excessive clock speeds on the Snapdragon 865, and it’ll doubtless tout the 5G connection as a solution to stream other video games.
Provided that even the Samsung Galaxy S20 display goes to supply a 120Hz refresh, it might make sense for a gaming-oriented Legion cellphone to supply a similar spec.
The group of gaming telephones it getting extra packed. The Razer Phone 2, Black Shark 3, and Asus ROG Phone 2 have cornered the market, and Lenovo might not break in so naturally. It is also unlikely Lenovo will break into the US market because it has saved its personal branded telephones outdoors and left Motorola to cover the US.
Lenovo may attempt to undercut costs; however, there’s cramped room to trim specs when together with the excessive-finish Snapdragon 865. One space Lenovo may discover is VR. It is opponents within the gaming cellphone house that haven’t got as a lot occurring in VR as Lenovo does.
Lenovo has made headphones for Windows Mixed Reality, and the phone-slotted-into- a-headset may nonetheless work. Even the pleasant Oculus Quest runs on only a Snapdragon 835 chipset. The Legion cellphone’s chipset would provide significantly extra energy, and that paired with some Lenovo know-how in VR may end up a fascinating product.
Lenovo may launch a cookie-cutter gaming smartphone that has excessive-finish specs, some games design parts, and an enormous, glowing “Y” on it. In any case, this is a similar firm that has begun making gaming laptops that can’t game.
