Lenovo's upcoming gaming smartphone, the Legion 2 Pro, just showed up on the Master Lu benchmark database. It managed to defeat the Asus ROG Phone 5 by a somewhat narrow margin, with a total score of 962,115, which is a tad higher than the latter's score of 947,284. Lenovo will launch the smartphone in China on April 8.

Lenovo is all set to launch the Lenovo Legion 2 Pro gaming smartphone on April 8. Based on its Geekbench listing, it will compete with the likes of the recently-launched Asus ROG Phone 5, Black Shark 4 and Nubia Red Magic 6 Pro. Now, the phone has made yet another appearance on the Master Lu benchmark database, and its performance is nothing short of stellar.

The Lenovo Legion 2 Pro manages to net an overall score of 962,115 on Master Lu. It handily beats the Asus ROG Phone 5's record-setting score of 947,284. It is worth noting that both of these listings were possibly run on pre-production units with unstable drivers. Therefore, the retail version of both smartphones could potentially do a lot better; maybe even breach the magical 1,00,000 barrier.

This particular Lenovo Legion 2 Pro variant appears to have 16GB of RAM. There could be an 18GB model in the works, too, given that it is all the rage among gaming smartphone manufacturers in 2021. Lastly, the Lenovo Legion 2 Pro Master Lu listing also tells us that the smartphone will run an FHD+ screen. We're probably looking at a high-refresh-rate OLED panel clocked at 144Hz or higher.

Chinese OEMs have always employed unique cooling mechanisms in their gaming smartphones and it'll be interesting to see what the Lenovo Legion 2 Pro has in store for us in that department. The 'Pro' tag suggests that there could be a vanilla Lenovo Legion 2 version in the works too. Its predecessor, the Lenovo Duel, was available in only a handful of regions. One can only hope that Lenovo doesn't go down that same path again, as the Lenovo Legion 2 Pro has the potential to disrupt the high-end-gaming smartphone market if priced correctly.
