Lenovo’s first gaming phone, the Lenovo Legion, has leaked in a series of promotional videos showing off the device. The Verge claims a “trusted” anonymous source provided the unreleased material, as well as some new specs.
There isn’t a guarantee yet that these videos will reflect the final design of the product, but they do offer an interesting look at what it may be.
Per XDA Developers, the videos indicate that the phone will feature 90W wired charging, “30 minutes to 100%” it claims, thanks to a beastly 5,000mAh dual-cell battery. A USB-C charging port, SIM card tray, data port, an extra USB-C port – no headphone jack, and a microphone hole on the top of the device.
The device’s back features a symmetrical design similar to the letter Y, a design feature on other Lenovo products. The dual cameras appear to be located in the centre of the rear, rather than on the top where you’d expect to see them. That’s perhaps a more useful location for mobile gamers who may be frequently holding the phone horizontally.
Unlike the iPhone, the videos indicate that the Legion will not have a camera notch on the top of the phone – instead, the front camera appears to pop out of the side — another decision that seems optimized for landscape orientation.

The new phone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865, with FS 3.0 internal storage and LPDDR5 RAM. The screen is said to have 2340 x 1080 resolution with a 144Hz refresh rate. The rear camera array includes a 64MP and a 16MP wide-angle shooter; the front camera is 20MP.
The leaks don’t give an indication of any pricing or release date, so users may need to wait a while to see this phone for ourselves.
