Lenovo is going to launch Legion Gaming Phone powered by Snapdragon 865+

Legion is coming to the world of gaming phones.

Every flagship smartphone is able to run the game. In this new decade, there is another term to sensibly call a smartphone that particularly runs the game with enhanced performance in its up-to-date period of chipset generation. They are known as Gaming Phone.

Are non-gaming phones able to run games? Absolutely, they are. But the term gaming phone is just a particular device for a specific purpose.

Now Lenovo is all set to join the ranks of Xiaomi, Asus, and Nubia to launch a gaming-oriented smartphone. The device will be marketed as its PC lineup under the company's gaming brand 'Legion'. Some of its main tech-specs were exposed through a series of teasers. Now, at least some of them may have been confirmed by an AnTuTu benchmark listing.

Legion with SD865+

The Lenovo Legion smartphone will be shipping with the Snapdragon 865+ processor according to the listing, something the company has already officially confirmed. The version that appeared on AnTuTu had 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and storage with 512GB UFS 3.1. The listing also confirms that a 144Hz display will feature in the phone.

The phone nodded on the benchmarking index an outstanding score of 648,871. Note that the device is listed as 'L79031' on AnTuTu and not as 'Moba,' the official code name of the telephone. Earlier leaks, however, had claimed that to be the official model number for the handset. That said, these metrics are genuinely easy to falsify, so take these leaks with a pinch of salt.

AnTuTu Scoring

Throughout the past few months, Lenovo has published a series of teasers to hype its upcoming app. The device will be shipping with a 5,000mAh dual-cell battery with 90W fast charging, according to some of those teasers. The report also suggested that the device will have a wide-angle dual-camera setup (64MP+16MP) at the back. The phone is also said to have a popup front-camera module (with a single 20MP sensor) located on the side of the phone. The device is also said to feature a FullHD (2340×1080) screen and is supposed to run Android 10 with ‘LegionOS’.
