A cursory glance at Lenovo's smartphone division tells us that it isn't doing too well. However, that didn't stop the company from launching the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel last year. The device appears to have done well for itself, as Lenovo plans on releasing yet another gaming smartphone called the Lenovo Legion 2 Pro.
MySmartPrice happened to stumble upon the Lenovo Legion 2 Pro on Geekbench. Much like its similarly-specced peers such as the Nubia Red Magic 6 series and Asus ROG Phone 5, it appears to be running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. Its single and multi-core scores of 1,129 and 3,763 confirm that it is indeed running Qualcomm's top-of-the-line silicon. This particular Lenovo Legion 2 Pro variant has 16GB of RAM. While that is an unnecessary amount of memory for any smartphone, OEMs seem to think that it is a tad lacking, pushing the sweet spot to 18GB.
Lastly, the Lenovo Legion 2 Pro moniker suggests that there is a non-Pro variant in the works too. It's hard to tell when Lenovo plans on launching the Legion 2 Pro, but a Geekbench listing usually indicates that there are prototype devices out and about, so it shouldn't be too long before we get to see it in action.
