Legion Y700: Lenovo shows the upcoming gaming tablet's thermal management system off ahead of its launch
Lenovo's Legion brand is set to gain its first Android tablet in 2022. This Y700 is already touted as a device that could combine the functions of a gaming phone with those of, say, a smaller iPad. With its 8.8-inch display form-factor, it might also be compact enough. Despite this, however, the OEM now asserts that it still has space for gaming-grade cooling.
Legion's Weibo account has now revealed that each Y700 unit will contain a "heat dissipation" system capable of covering no less than 45,357.7mm² of space. Of this, approximately 8,500mm² will consist of the tablet's vapor chamber, whereas that of the average 6.7-inch display smartphone might be 3-4,000mm².
The Y700 might leverage these internals into impressive gaming performance, even though it is slated to launch with the sub-flagship Snapdragon 870 SoC rather than something like the 888. Lenovo has yet to reveal a launch date for this first-gen device, choosing to tout the Y700's version of ZUI 13 again instead for now.
