Lenovo is back in business with their first gaming phone, and it’s a monster.

After many years of not making a considerable impression in the smartphone industry, Lenovo is back, this time not as it subsidiary Motorola but under the Legion category to make their first gaming smartphone. A promotional video of the untitled version of the Lenovo Legion has been leaked by a trusted source to the XDA Developers.

If the leaks are to be believed, this gigantic phone will feature a 90W fast wired charging with a beastly 5,000 mAh dual cell battery. Lenovo claims that the phone will charge from 0 to 100 in just 30 minutes.

Now comes the unusual design, on the bottom we can see a USB Type C charging port and a SIM Tray and an additional USB C on the side, speakers on the top and bottom bezel, and a microphone hole on the top.

The back side of the phone features a dual rear camera of 64+ 16MP wide angle, for some reason mounted at the centre of the device. Probably to make it easier for gamers to hold the phone, but a very unusual design for any smartphones. Now to add more weirdness, the selfie camera does not come under a notch but is a side mounted popup camera of 20MP.

Seems to be an advantage for gamers and more optimised for landscape orientation. Similar to the Red Magic 5G, the phone also comes with one of the most powerful display with 2340 x 1080 resolution with a 144Hz refresh rate.

It also reveals some other important and obvious features, the phone will be powered with the latest premium Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 with UFS 3.0 internal storage and LPDDR5 RAM. The storage and memory details are not mentioned.

The leaks don’t give an indication of any pricing or release date, so we may need to wait a while to see this phone

I love the way the technological world revolves around me from the introduction of an earpiece to the computing device in a space shuttle, every tiny detail amuses me. I try to put my fascination to words for all the fanatics of this evolution who are ironically hooked to its benefits anyway. Proud to be a part of this generation who saw a tape-recording cassette with 5 songs and a cloud streaming service with a zillion songs inside your pocket.
