The upcoming Lenovo Legion Y700 gaming tablet has been teased once again. This time around, Lenovo has demonstrated some of the game enhancements the Legion Y700 can offer thanks to the presence of ZUI 13 software. The 8.8-inch compact Android tablet is expected to feature either a Snapdragon 870 or Snapdragon 888 SoC.
Update: The Legion Y700 will come with an SD870 processor.

Update January 7: The same source that revealed the display ratio changing utility has also confirmed that the Lenovo Legion Y700 has a Snapdragon 870 processor.

Original story:

More live images of the Lenovo Legion Y700 Android tablet have been posted on the Chinese social media site Weibo. This time around, the focus is on the gaming and display capabilities of the Lenovo slate. With a little help from the “exclusive landscape screen interaction” provided by the ZUI 13 operating system, the Legion Y700 is able to expand its field of view in a manner that will be of great use for fans of multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) type games.

When selected, the software option opens up the field of view from a 16:10 ratio to a 21:10 ratio. As demonstrated in the screenshot from Honor of Kings posted below, the Lenovo Legion Y700’s display offers additional game content on both sides, thus giving the gamer a better sense of their surroundings and further warning of incoming enemies. Currently, this display extension is only supported in the above-mentioned title and League of Legends.

The Legion Y700 display options mean the user can either select a full-screen view or display the game content in the center of the screen or even in the bottom portion of the panel. In addition, the enhancement can be either set to operate automatically or left to the user’s choice. As can be seen in the real-word images of the Lenovo Legion Y700 below, the display switches from full screen to widescreen to utilize the 21:10 ratio.

While Lenovo has revealed many of the display specs for its compact tablet, the key hardware is still a mystery, with either an SD870 or SD888 processor expected to be Legion Y700’s SoC. Price predictions for the 8.8-inch Android tablet have also been wild, ranging from around US$400 to over US$900, and there is even a possibility there may be more than one variant of the device.
