Lenovo Legion puts down Red Magic in the latest of its gaming phone teasers; confirms 55 W charging and detachable accessories
Teased last month on Weibo, Lenovo has now posted more information on the Chinese microblogging website about its first gaming smartphone. While the company already confirmed that a Snapdragon 865 SoC will be onboard, it has even offered a glimpse of what the device will look like.
The Legion Gaming Phone, as we are currently calling it, will support 55 W charging. Additionally, expect LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 flash storage and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. A high refresh-rate display should go without saying, too.
Lenovo has also shown off some accessories that it plans to launch alongside the device. As reported by GSMArena, the photo below appears to show detachable controllers, a case of some sort and what may be Legion-branded TWS earbuds.
The same picture seems to show the front and back of the Legion Gaming Phone, too. According to the photo, the device will also include an in-screen fingerprint scanner, red accent lighting and two oddly-placed rear-facing cameras.
Separately, Lenovo is pitching the device as a Nubia Red Magic challenger. Unashamedly, one marketing picture contains the phrase "No Red. It's Magic". There is no word on a release date yet, though.
