Lenovo teases upcoming Legion Y700 tablet and Legion Y90 smartphone launches by posting full data sheets but without the prices
Most of the details of the Lenovo Legion Y700 and Legion Y90 have already been leaked, and it is expected that they will be officially launched at a special event taking place on February 28. The Y90 smartphone comes packed with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, up to an incredible 18 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 512 GB UFS 3.1 storage working alongside a novel 128 GB SSD. Along with a 6.9-inch AMOLED, the Legion Y90 will be a powerful gaming smartphone, but it is the compact Android tablet that appears to be the more potentially mouthwatering release.
The compact side of the tablet market has been quite sparse as of late, especially for those who would prefer an Android-based slate over Apple’s undeniably terrific iPad Mini 6. However, Lenovo appears to want to rectify that situation with the Legion Y700, which has recently been shown off in live review images in China. The tablet’s specs are already mostly known, with an SD 870 supported by up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
There are some definite selling points for the Lenovo Legion Y700, and although it may not sport an AMOLED panel the LCD should still attract with its 2560x1600 resolution, 343 ppi, 120 Hz refresh rate, and 500-nit brightness. The confirmed 6,550-mAh battery is detailed in the data sheet and connectivity consists of 1x 3.5 mm jack, 1x MicroSD, and 1x USB-C port. An 8,500 mm2 vapor chamber promises to give the Legion Y700 a sufficient cooling system for long gaming sessions.
Unfortunately, Lenovo is clearly waiting for the official release to spring price tags on the world for the Legion Y700 and Legion Y90. However, whispered rumors have settled on the 2,000-yuan mark for China and ₹29,990 has been suggested for the Indian market, with these figures being the equivalent of US$317/€281/£236 and US$399/€354/£298, respectively. The latter estimates seem more likely for their respective international markets and would probably make the Lenovo Legion Y700 a best-seller as long as the 8-inch Android tablet cuts the mustard in testing.
