The latest official leaks indicate that Lenovo will debut its next-gen Android gaming flagship smartphone as the Legion Y90. Despite this, it seems it will launch with the exact same display specs as its predecessor. Nevertheless, it is allegedly as capable of smart refresh-rate switching as a cutting-edge display with the newest LTPO tech.

Lenovo has indicated that it will rebrand its Android gaming flagship from something like the "Legion Phone 3 Pro" to the Legion Y90. It might thus rock the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, in conjunction with its "double-engine" cooling solution.

However, it is possible that the Y90 might be more of a refresh of the Phone 2 Pro, in that it seems to be in line for the exact same display as that released earlier in 2021. It had a diagonal length of 6.92 inches and supported a 144Hz refresh rate - on the other hand, as a panel of last-gen E4 AMOLED, it is unlikely to have specs boasted by competing flagship smartphones.

For example, it is looking more and more likely that the Legion Y90 will not be able to match devices such as the imminent Xiaomi 12 series or the OnePlus 10 Pro on paper. They are touted to launch with LTPO 2.0, a second-gen spec is rated to conserve battery while a variable refresh rate mode is active.

Nevertheless, the tipster Lin Lin asserts that the Y90 will be able to match its rivals in this respect. They have shared a video of a screen allegedly belonging to the phone, smoothly transitioning between 60Hz and 120Hz. Therefore, Lenovo just might market its upcoming gaming phone as one with a display that can stand up to 2022 demands with 2021 specs.
