An alleged press picture of a Lenovo Legion cellphone (beneath), first posted on Weibo, was shared by GizmoChina. Whereas there is not a lot to see, it is clearly Lenovo’s Legion branding, which is particular to gaming merchandise.
We have already seen loads of firms supply fancy gaming telephones that dial up the clockspeeds or show 120Hz refresh charges, however we’ve not seen one but that may connect with the next-gen 5G networks.
Presumably, the Lenovo Legion gaming cellphone will include another gaming-centric specs. Lenovo could add some particular cooling to supply excessive clockspeeds on the Snapdragon 865, and it’ll possible tout the 5G connection as a approach to stream extra video games.
What else can Lenovo do to be totally different
The gang of gaming telephones it getting extra packed. The Razer Cellphone 2, Asus ROG Cellphone 2 and Black Shark three have cornered the market, and Lenovo could not break in so simply. It is also unlikely Lenovo will break into the US market, because it has saved its personal branded telephones outdoors and left Motorola to cowl the US.
Lenovo might attempt to undercut costs, however there’s restricted room to trim specs when together with the high-end Snapdragon 865. One space Lenovo might discover is VR. It is opponents within the gaming cellphone house haven’t got as a lot happening in VR as Lenovo does.
Lenovo has made headsets for Home windows Blended Actuality, and the phone-slotted-into- a-headset might nonetheless work. Even the pleasant Oculus Quest runs on only a Snapdragon 835 chipset. The Legion cellphone’s chipset would supply significantly extra energy, and that paired with some Lenovo know-how in VR might end up an attention-grabbing product.
After all, Lenovo may simply launch a cookie-cutter gaming smartphone that has high-end specs, some gamery design components, and a giant, glowing “Y” on it. In spite of everything, this is similar firm that has began making gaming laptops that may’t recreation.
