Lenovo potentially previews its 2022 Legion design with a Y7000P teaser

Lenovo is currently hyping its Legion Yxxxx for the Chinese market via Weibo. The latest posters from this campaign teases one of these laptops - also likely to re-brand for international markets - in terms of its design. It suggests that the Y7000P will be a particularly light and thin 2022 gaming laptop - although the look might come at a price.

Lenovo has recently offered a glimpse of its next-gen Legion laptops for the Chinese market. Going by the updated naming scheme involved, we may already have caught sight of the line's flagship, the Y9000P. Now, its possibly smaller sibling the Y7000P has turned up on Weibo.

Its new, schematic-inspired teaser might reinforce the impression that this Legion Yxxxx series are variations on, or successors to, the PCs known as the Legion S7/Slim 7/7 series, based on variant type and where they are sold elsewhere throughout the world.

In this case, it looks most likely that what we have here is something like a Legion 5i. It has the high-end, 180°-hinge chassis typical of such laptops; however, in this case, it appears to be thinner with edges that are flatter and more squared-off than anything seen in 2021.

However, this potential esthetic advantage may imply a potentially deal-breaking compromise: that of a potential reduction in port-count (on the machine's sides, at least) in this generation. The Y7000P, as seen from one side, exhibits nothing but 2 USB type-C ports, 1 of which is ostensibly Thunderbolt at least.

On that note, it is also now possible that the Legion Y7000P is an Intel-powered device, and that the Y9000P is, by the same token, also going with this platform. This may debunk speculation that the laptop would be a Ryzen variant instead; however, there is now talk of corresponding R9000P and R7000P units with these specs.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
