Lenovo is a company that’s not so popular for its smartphones. All the smartphones it has released have basically been just another face in the crowd, as most of them are mediocre and target the mid to lower mid range segments. The company is excellent for other electronic products like Laptops, but hasn’t really hit the sweet spot with smartphones just yet. However, that might change soon as they’ve unveiled and announced the upcoming Lenovo Legion, which seems like a unique smartphone experience, particularly for gamers.
The legion, just like any other top notch gaming smartphone, will feature the latest and greatest from Snapdragon so the most important feature will remain smooth for gamers. You can expect the Snapdragon 865 or the 865+ on this one for sure. Moreover, heavy gaming also takes a lot of battery, and the Legion will sport a chunky, 5000 mAh battery cell which will last you a day easily on heavy gaming even. However, perhaps the most eye-catching feature about the phone is about its charging capabilities, as the Legion is expected to support a whopping 90W fast charging. This is absurd from Lenovo, as the fastest charging we've seen previously in a smartphone was 65W from Oppo's Super VOOC charging. The 90W spec will probably charge the phone fully in under 30 minutes, or even less depending on how well the company optimizes the phone.
Another unique aspect of the phone will come from its camera setup, as the front camera module will not be a notch, a punch hole cutout, or pop-up camera on the top. Instead, it's going to feature a unique side mounted front camera. You may ask why the company has gone with this direction, but the answer is also gaming related as well. A side mounted camera will help gamers to stream themselves while playing a mobile game, instead of getting a separate camera setup for that. The Legion is expected to have built-in features to ease streaming for gamers.
All in all, the phone looks spectacular at first glance and will surely provide competition to the likes of Xiaomi Black Shark series, or the ROG phone lineup from ASUS. Watch out for this one.
