Updated | Lenovo Legion Y700 vs Apple iPad Mini 6: New leaked images show real-world size comparison of the compact tablets
Update January 5: The Weibo "blogger" who shared the comparison images is actually the Lenovo customer marketing director for China, so this is an official leak.
Lenovo has been teasing the Legion Y700 gaming tablet again, with the OEM revealing that the device will utilize ZUI software. This means it will be optimized for gaming, which involves “exclusive landscape interaction” and an “independent game space”. While Lenovo has been busy with the teasing, a Weibo blogger has posted a whole selection of real-world images of the Legion Y700 being compared against an iPad Mini 6.
The first photo shows the two tablets from the front in horizontal mode, with the Legion Y700 on the left and the Mini 6 on the right. As can be clearly seen below, the top and bottom bezels of the Lenovo tablet are very slim, while the side bezels are more substantial. This reinforces the notion that the Lenovo Legion Y700 should be gripped in a horizontal manner similar to a “traditional” handheld gaming machine, like the Nintendo Switch in portable mode.
The portrait mode view of the Legion Y700 and the Mini 6 shows how much screen real estate the Lenovo slate offers. Its entire form is only slightly bigger than that of the Apple rival, and the narrower bezels really highlight the extra gaming space on the display. There’s a look at the back of the two tablets, with the Legion Y700 looking easy in the hand. A comparison and closer look at the edges of the compact Android tablet also reveal that Lenovo, at least on the surface, has created an aesthetically pleasing slate that appears to come with a 3.5 mm audio jack.
Unfortunately, there are no reveals concerning the specs, prices, potential model variants, or launch date for the Lenovo Legion Y700 in this particular real-life image leak. But it seems likely the launch date is approaching quickly if the tablet is already leaking in live images in such a manner and Lenovo has been increasing the frequency of related promo posting.
