Recently, reports regarding Lenovo launching its first Android gaming smartphone had been making rounds online. The company is expected to launch a gaming device under its popular Legion lineup of gaming products and will mark the series expansion to mobile. While there were rumors up until now, a new leak has granted a more detailed look at the upcoming Legion smartphone, which is said to feature a side popup camera along with a higher refresh rate and more.
Over the last few months, Lenovo had been teasing its first gaming smartphone, especially through Weibo, a Chinese microblogging website. One of the most interesting ones was the fact that the device can fast charge at r ates up to 90W
Looking at the screenshots, Lenovo teases its 90W fast charging technology again, which will be supported through two USB Type C ports (on the bottom and one of the sides during gaming). Through this image, we can observe that the rear panel has an LED flash right in the middle just below its dual camera setup which is also placed uniquely near the center of the back panel. The overall aesthetics of the device hints at gaming with angular designs that simulate speed and power through 3D textures.

Among the leaked screenshots, a few other details were also revealed. This includes Lenovo Legion’s new uEngine technology, which is its symmetrical dual X-axis linear vibration motor and hints at the device’s cooling and audio capabilities. The gaming phone will reportedly feature a 3D cooling tower structure with dual heat pipe partitions for long-lasting cooling. For audio, it will sport positive stereo sound from its full symmetrical 65mm dual speakers, dual 0.6mm amp speaker system, and 1.4cc large sound cavity.
Notably, the Legion logo can also be observed on the back on top of which a side mounted popup camera is also housed. The selfie camera’s placement is quite interesting, to say the least, and the company probably made the move for a full front display design. Furthermore, the report also revealed that the device carried the model number L79031 and is codenamed “moba.” Unfortunately, this has yet to be confirmed officially so stay tuned.
