A potential 16GB Lenovo Legion phone pops up on Geekbench
Lenovo is slated to unleash its first gaming phone later this year or next. It was originally projected to be a Snapdragon 865 device, mainly as this was the most powerful processor available at the time. However, with the unveiling of its Plus variant, it now seems the same product might come with this newer platform instead.
The combination of Lenovo's inaugural Android gaming solution and the 865+ has allegedly surfaced on the AnTuTu benchmark site. It has done so in the form of an alleged 16GB RAM SKU, which may now also have appeared on Geekbench 4.
Its other specs are identical to the last instance of its model number (L79031) showing up on this database, including the SoC-related identifier kona. This is normally associated with the 865, although it is possible the benchmark could detect its new version in the same manner.
The "16GB Lenovo Legion Phone" has achieved scores that are just that little bit higher than other 2020 flagship phones that have gone through the same tests. This may seem counter-intuitive, given the 865+'s relative enhancements, but in fact dovetails with the same device's CPU scores in its alleged AnTuTu results.
Nevertheless, the gaming phone may yet enjoy the benefits of additional properties such as a 144Hz screen and a Lenovo-developed cooling system. To date, however, it does not possess a launch date or approximate pricing.
