Lenovo Legion 5 with AMD Ryzen 5 4600H processor launched in India
Lenovo has introduced the Legion 5 gaming laptop in India. The company already sells the Gaming 3i, Legion 5i, and Legion 7i, all of which are powered by the 10th-gen Intel mobile processors. With the launch of the new model, Lenovo now has an AMD Ryzen-powered option for gamers. We recently featured this notebook as one of the best affordable gaming laptops that you could buy this year. As of now, Lenovo is only offering the base variant of the Legion 5 in India that includes the Ryzen 5 4600H processor.
The Legion 5 is priced at ₹75,990 ($1,030) although the price is listed as ₹79,990 ($1,080) on the official Lenovo India website for the Phantom Black color option. The notebook follows the same design language as we saw on the Legion 7i, but does not include the flashy RGB lighting. Lenovo is also offering a one-year free Premium Care and one-year of Accidental Damage Protection for the legion 5 at 3,900 ($53). You can get the laptop from Lenovo.com and Lenovo Exclusive Stores. Lenovo also promises that the laptop will be made available across other online partner platforms and retail stores, soon.
Now unlocked, the next level of gaming.
High Performance, Low Profile.

The gaming notebook features a 15.6-inch IPS anti-glare display having a Full-HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) with a 120Hz refresh rate. As mentioned above, it is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H processor which is a six-core processor with 12-threads and a clock speed of 3GHz with a max boost speed of up to 4GHz. There is 8GB of DDR4 RAM clocked at 3200MHz and for graphics, it features the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti having 4GB of GDDR6 memory. For storage, you get a 256GB M.2 PCIe 3.0×4 NVMe SSD as well as a 1TB HDD. As for ports and connectivity you get four USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port, an Ethernet (RJ-45), and a headphone/microphone combo jack. The notebook also comes with standard Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
Lenovo says that the notebook will offer a battery life of 8 hours with its ‘Hybrid Mode.’ Considering the AMD chipset is based on the 7nm node, we don’t believe that the results would be far from the claims. You also get Lenovo’s TrueStrike keyboard with white backlit keys along with Rapid Charge Pro for fast battery charging. The 720p webcam comes with a shutter slider that lets you shut the camera lens for extra privacy.
