Lenovo Legion 'Halo' Gaming Phone Could be Powered by An Overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Chipset
Lenovo has been releasing its own Legion gaming smartphone and while we're waiting for a successor to the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 that arrived in Malaysia last year, another gaming device seems to be on its way.
Tipster Evan Blass shared on Twitter a render image and specs of a new Lenovo phone codenamed 'Halo'. Based on the render, the upcoming device will have a design that looks more like a regular smartphone with a punch-hole display, a rear camera island with three lenses, and the Legion logo on the back.
The Legion 'Halo' gaming phone is expected to feature a 6.67" FHD+ POLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, as well as a 5000mAh battery that supports 68W wired charging. It could be powered by a Qualcomm SM8475 chipset that will likely be the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus processor (since the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset is labeled SM8450).
It's interesting that this one won't come with a landscape-focused design like the Legion Phone Duel 2 or most gaming phone models. While gamers may love the gamer aesthetic design, some could prefer a more minimalistic design.
Currently, it's unclear what the phone's actual name will be or when will it be launched. However, Blass reported that the phone isn't scheduled to arrive until Q3 2022 so we still have to wait longer for more information about the Lenovo device.
