At the end of last year Lenovo hinted that it would expand its Legion brand product line to include gamers cell phones, gamers laptops and desktops.

Now a teaser of the company published on the Chinese social network Weibo basically indicates that its gamer phone is really on the way. Little is known about this device, but what has been confirmed is that it will come with 5G connectivity, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset.
In the image you can also see the stylized “Y”. This letter is normally used by Lenovo in the model names of its Legion products, such as its PCs for gamers.
If this is confirmed, Lenovo will not be the first to launch a smartphone aimed at gamers. Companies like Razer, ASUS, Xiaomi (Black Shark) and Nobia (Red Magic) have already launched devices focused on this segment. One point in common is that these devices have screens with a high update rate and in some cases even bring liquid cooling, in addition to buttons to facilitate their use with games.
Specific details in addition to the chipset and 5G connectivity are still unknown, but it is expected that the device will come with a generous amount of RAM and screen with a refresh rate of at least 90Hz. There is also no information as to whether or not this phone will be available outside of China.
The Snapdragon 865 is today one of the best smartphone chipsets on the market. This chip, which was introduced during the Snapdragon Summit in early December, features eight Kryo 585 cores and Adreno 650 GPU with support for resolutions up to 4K at 60Hz and Quad HD + at up to 144Hz.
