The first smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 865 Plus are just around the corner. Both Lenovo and Asus will unveil their Snapdragon 865 Plus powered devices on July 22. Lenovo has teased the fact that the smartphone will come with a 144Hz display for a smooth gaming experience. Other specifications and features of the smartphone have been making the rounds on the internet. It looks like the Lenovo Legion gaming phone will have the Legion OS, which is based on Lenovo’s ZUI 12 running on top of Android 10.
Not all the specifications of the Lenovo Legion gaming phone are known. What is known is the fact that it will have a 144Hz display and also that it will run on the Snapdragon 865 Plus platform.
If information circulating the internet is to be believed, then we could see one version of the Lenovo Legion phone sport 6GB RAM and 128GB USF 3.0 storage and there could be a pro version with 16GB RAM and 512GB UFS 3.1 storage. The Lenovo Legion phone is expected to sport 90W fast charging for the 5000mAh battery that powers the device.
It also looks like the device will have an interesting design. The smartphone will have a popup camera, and while the concept of a pop-up camera isn’t new, the position of the front camera on the Lenovo Legion smartphone is. The popup camera is mounted on the side which will make it the ideal position when the smartphone is held in landscape mode. This could be great for those looking to use the front camera when streaming games from their smartphone.
The position of the rear camera is also interesting. Instead of the standard top left corner, the camera on the Lenovo Legion gaming phone is in the centre. It looks like Lenovo will be catering to users who shoot landscapes more than portraits. Further, the camera module can be better used for AR games, where the camera position won’t change going from landscape to portrait. But here too, there’s a chance your hands might end up covering the lens, or worse, smudging it. Lenovo will announce the Legion phone on July 22 5 PM IST.
