Lenovo’s Legion brand recently set up its Weibo account and now the company has teased the arrival of its gaming-centric phone. It reveals that the upcoming gaming phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. Notably, if the phone launches anytime soon, Lenovo would be among the earliest brands to launch a phone with Snapdragon 865 SoC. However, the teaser doesn’t reveal anything aside from the chipset.

The latest development comes from Lenovo Legion’s Weibo account. While the teaser reveals information about the chipset Legion gaming phone will run on, there is no other information available on Legion’s Weibo timeline. The company is looking forward to following Asus’ strategy. For reference, Asus launched a gaming phone under its Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand. Lenovo will be doing the same with its Legion brand.

While Lenovo hasn’t launched many phones in India, the brand has been fairly active in China with the launch of high-end smartphones under the Lenovo Z-series. While the Z-series comes with flagship specifications, they are not targeted at mobile gaming enthusiasts, which is expected to change with the launch of the Legion gaming phone. 

Not much is known about the Legion gaming phone at this moment. However, if we were to speculate, we expect an aggressive design language, high refresh-rate panel up to 144Hz, an ample amount of RAM - most likely LPDDR5. It may come with the latest UFS storage standard. 

We expect more details about the device to emerge soon as we close-in on the launch.
