Lenovo will now also try to be a smartphone manufacturer. Under its “Legion” label, previously known in the PC sector, Lenovo apparently wants to establish a second brand in the smartphone market alongside Motorola. The first device is to be a gaming smartphone with Snapdragon 865.
Lenovo has already practically owned a smartphone brand with Motorola, but the Chinese company apparently wants to gain even more market share in the smartphone sector. So far, their own brand “Legion” is only known for gaming notebooks, but that could change now. Because they will shortly be launching its own gaming smartphone on the market. This reveals a corresponding teaser that Lenovo published on the short message service Weibo.
The picture confirms little more than the fact that the gaming smartphone appears under the “Lenovo” brand and is said to be equipped with the Snapdragon 865. This is not really a surprise, because a smartphone aimed at gamers must, of course, be at the top in terms of hardware and this SoC will be the measure of the upper class until the 865+ will appear in the third quarter.
According to Pocketnow, a display with 144 Hertz, faster DDR5 RAM and UFS memory should also be installed in the new Lenovo smartphone. However, it will probably still be UFS 3.0 storage; the UFS 3.1 standard has only recently been adopted. More information about the smartphone – especially in terms of RAM size or camera equipment – is not yet known. Prices and availability of the device on the European market have also not yet been determined. In China, where it is expected to appear first, it has to face competitors like the Black Shark.
It remains to be seen whether they can assert itself with a smartphone for gamers. In the PC world, Lenovo has been offering “Legion” devices for a long time powerful desktop PCs and notebooks for gamers at very competitive prices.
