Lenovo Legion official renders confirm side popup camera from earlier leaks
The gaming smartphone segment has grown steadily over the last couple of years, with several OEMs like Asus, Razer, and Nubia offering some compelling devices geared towards mobile gamers. Chinese OEM Lenovo is also expected to join the ranks this year with its new Legion branded gaming smartphone. The device was leaked extensively earlier this year in May and we already know quite a bit about its specifications and design. Lenovo recently confirmed some of the details, like the 144Hz high refresh display and liquid cooling system, via official teasers on Weibo. Now, the company has released more teasers of the device which confirm that it will feature a side-mounted pop-up camera.
As you can see in the attached images, the upcoming Lenovo Legion gaming smartphone will feature a dual-camera setup on the back with a dual-LED flash right in the center of the back panel.
Over on the front, the device features a nearly bezel-less display with rounded edges, dual front-firing speakers, and a pop-up selfie camera mounted on the side.
A listing of the device has also popped up on Chinese etailer JD.com, which includes a short marketing video of the device that we’ve seen in previous leaks. The video confirms that the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC and feature support for 90W fast wired charging. You can view the video by following the JD.com source linked below.
The listing also reveals that the Lenovo Legion gaming smartphone will be officially unveiled on July 22nd in China. Previous leaks suggest that the device will include a second USB Type-C port on the side to let users easily charge their phone while holding the device horizontally. The device is expected to run Lenovo’s ZUI 12 based on Android 10 with significant customizations on top. The company will, most likely, market the operating system as “Legion OS” for all upcoming devices in the Lenovo Legion series.
