The Lenovo company officially presented its first smartphone on the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 platform – it was the new gaming Lenovo Legion Y70.
The model did not receive the chips and features usual for Legion gaming flagships (such as additional hardware capabilities in Lenovo Legion Duel), but at the same time, it offers flagship performance. It is likely that the smartphone will be exclusive to China, and it will be possible to buy it only on Chinese online sites, but an exit to the international market is not excluded.
The smartphone is equipped with an OLED display with a diagonal of 6.67 inches, FullHD+ resolution, and a refresh rate of 144 Hz, while the refresh rate of the sensor is up to 1500 Hz. At the top of the display there is a cutout for the front camera, and the fingerprint scanner, judging by everything, is integrated into the power button. The thickness of the smartphone is only 7.99 millimeters, while a fairly advanced system is used here
The new Lenovo Legion Y70, as already mentioned, received the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 platform (recall that the Legion Y90 uses the standard, not the Plus version). The platform is paired with 8, 12, or 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, while UFS 3.1 internal storage is available here in 128, 256, or 512GB.
The smartphone has a main camera with the main sensor of 50 MP 1/1.55″, ultra-wide 13 MP with a viewing angle of 120 degrees, as well as a depth sensor of 2 MP, while the resolution of the front camera is 16 MP. A 5100 mAh battery that supports fast charging with a power of 68W is responsible for the autonomy of the smartphone.
Out of the box, the Lenovo Legion Y70 comes with the Android 12 operating system and the ZUI 14 software shell. A rather interesting assortment of accessories was presented with the smartphone, including a protective case that also cools the smartphone. The model is available at a price starting at $485. White, black, and red colors will be available to choose from (the latter will only be available for the top configuration with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage).
