Lenovo Legion gaming phone confirmed for July 22 launch, hopes to take on Asus ROG phone and Nubia Red Magic

Lenovo Legion gaming phone confirmed for July 22 launch, hopes to take on Asus ROG phone and Nubia Red Magic 13

The Chinese tech company will be hoping it’s third time lucky after their recent failures against the bigwigs in the gaming phone market.

Lenovo has been teasing its first gaming smartphone under the popular Legion branding for a while and on Friday announced it will launch the Legion Phone on July 22.

But its fresh announcement gives away more details, such as the Lenovo Legion Phone will feature the brand-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor to offer high-end gaming. Coincidentally, Asus is also expected to launch the ROG Phone 3 in India the same day and with the same chipset.

Third time lucky. Really?

It’s really not literally third time is it? Its various smartphones waned too soon, not only in India, China and other international markets but also no major acceptance down here in Africa.

With many major flaws and years of failures to exist and impose itself on the smartphone gaming industry, they will be praying the sky is blue this time around.

Unlike its smartphones, Lenovo’s PC business is thriving in China, India, and other markets. In fact, its range of Legion high-end gaming laptops have carved a niche for itself.

However, the company is now leveraging on the Legion branding to push its gaming smartphones in the market that is rife and will definitely hope to compete with the likes of Asus ROG Phone and the Nubia Red Magic.

Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone Features and Specifications

Previous leaks have suggested the smartphone will be more suited for handholding vertically. Which is why the leaks have shown the Legion Phone with a pop-up camera on the side of the smartphone — in a rather unusual setting.

However, Lenovo is going for the high-end innards on the Legion Phone, including the top-notch Snapdragon 865+ processor that was launched earlier this month as Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset to date. It is packed with the best 5G modem and other connectivity features that will be more than enough for a gaming phone with most 2020-esque standards.

Also to expect is a very high refresh rate on the Lenovo Legion Phone display — with leaks suggesting extraordinary figures though something sort of 144Hz — and an FHD+ resolution will be super fun.

Other expected key specs include a 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage. A report previously stated that there could be a 64-megapixel main camera that will be situated on the dead centre of the smartphone’s back to facilitate the vertical operability.

Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone Launch Date

Everything points to an awesome gaming experience in the waiting though we expect ASUS to crash the party as usual with its ROG Gaming phone.

The event is slated to begin at 7.30 pm Beijing time, July 22, which translates to 12 pm WAT. The same day, at 8.15 pm, is the launch of Asus ROG Phone 3. So we can expect a showdown between the two gaming smartphones later this month. Lenovo has not said anything about the availability of the Legion Phone outside of China.
