Global Lenovo Legion Y700 launch more likely as multiple country product pages for the 8-inch Android tablet spring up
Just recently, we reported on the revelation of a product page for the Legion Y700 gaming tablet turning up at Lenovo India. The page itself had little to say about the 8-inch Android slate, but it does seem to signpost an intention that Lenovo will eventually launch the Legion Y700 outside of China. The powerful gaming device was actually unleashed in February 2022, but it is currently only officially available in Lenovo’s domestic market.
However, there are definite hints that situation could soon be changing. Product pages for the Legion Y700 tablet can be found in multiple Lenovo country sites that are dotted around the world, including (but not limited to) Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, Peru, Slovakia, Singapore, and Spain. As mentioned above, Lenovo India is also still showing an incomplete product page for the Legion Y700.
Interestingly, key international markets for Lenovo such as the USA, UK, and Australia simply offer a 404 error page when either searching for “Legion Y700” or “88GMY70”, so it would be best for those tablet fans who are hoping for a global Lenovo Legion Y700 launch to temper their expectations for the time being. But Lenovo will be making an appearance at CES 2023 from January 5 to January 8, so more might be revealed at that time.
Launching the 8.8-inch Lenovo Legion Y700 for a global audience would be a welcome move by the OEM, considering many options for a premium or at least decent Android tablet are limited to larger formats. The Legion Y700 is powered by an 8-core Snapdragon 870 SoC with a prime core that can hit a respectable rate of 3.2 GHz. Up to 12 GB of RAM can be selected along with up to 256 GB of storage. A 6,550-mAh battery keeps gaming fun going and when the cell is depleted it can purportedly be charged back to 100% in just 45 minutes.
