A new gaming smartphone from Lenovo with model number L71091 is spotted in an offer on the Chinese regulatory body, TENAA. The handset, supposedly dubbed the Lenovo Legion Y70, is also likely the codenamed “Halo” Lenovo phone, which was leaked in January.
According to the listing, the dimensions of the Lenovo Legion Y70 are 6.44 x 3.03 x 0.31 inches (163.72 x 77.11 x 7.99 mm). It has a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 and will probably support a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
The Lenovo Legion Y70 is listed with a 4880mAh battery and is rumored to support a 68W fast charging speed, which is quite fast indeed. As for the cameras, the list says that the phone will have a total of four shooters. The Lenovo Legion Y70 is rumored to have a triple camera setup on the back with a 50MP main snapper and a 13MP front sensor. Lenovo’s new phone will also be able to record 8K images.
In terms of storage space, the list shows three variants: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. They will probably come in combination with 8 GB RAM, 12 GB RAM and 16 GB RAM respectively. As for the processor of the Lenovo Legion Y70, now things get a little complicated.
According to the TENAA listing, the Lenovo Legion Y70 chip is clocked at 3.0GHz, which is equivalent to the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. But on a Geekbench result that came online, the same phone was clocked at 3.2GHz, suggesting that the chip under the hood is the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the pumped-up version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
Of course, there is also the possibility that the less powerful and cheapest models will come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the more powerful ones, which will also cost more, could be equipped with the latest addition to the Snapdragon family, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
But even with the slightly older chipset, the Lenovo Legion Y70 will still deliver peak performance. Let’s not forget that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 silicon powers most of the flagship phones released this year, including the Samsung Galaxy S22 series.
Since the Lenovo Legion Y70 has already been listed on TENAA, the phone is likely to be launched in China soon. Unfortunately, we don’t know yet if it will be available worldwide or only in the Asian market. But in January, the Legion Phone 3 – another Lenovo gaming phone – has been leaked, which probably has a higher chance of making its way onto the global stage. Unfortunately, rumors at the time said it would be announced in Q1 2022, but it still hasn’t been released to this day and we’re going into Q3 2022.
