The first phone from Lenovo's gaming brand Legion may be getting close to launch. A device with what is thought to be its model number has reportedly been certified with the regulator 3C. The same number has also posted results on Geekbench 5, complete with some of the device's rumored specs.

Lenovo Legion has announced that it will release its first ever phone this year. It may compete with more established names in this category such as Red Magic and Asus' ROG Phone. The brand has been hyping this new product by hinting at some of its specs, although it largely remains a mystery.

For example, Legion has indicated that its phone will have 90 watt (W) charging. However, this would be ground-breaking in a mobile device; therefore, it is hard to see how the brand would facilitate it. This confusion has led to speculation that what Lenovo means by this is 45W wired charging plus wireless charging at the same rate.

A new certification lodged with 3C appears to validate this theory somewhat. It is for a device from the appropriate company with the model number L79031 - which, according to earlier leaks, is the Legion phone. It shows that it will ship with a power brick rated for up to 45W.

The same model number has also just cropped up on Geekbench 5. These new listings may confirm that it will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor: it includes this chipset's code-name, kona (if not the Legion phone's own reported moniker, moba). 

These benchmarking results may also show that the upcoming gaming phone has an SKU with 8GB of RAM and runs Android 10. As for this L79031's performance, it measures up well against other phones of similar specs also evaluated on this platform.

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.
