Lenovo has officially entered the mobile gaming field by launching a page dedicated to a so-called “Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone” over on Chinese social Weibo. As some of you probably know, the “Legion” branding is the same used by the tech giant on their gaming products such as their Legion gaming notebooks. So, Lenovo is taking the same path as ASUS with their ROG gaming devices.
Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone Coming Soon
Previous to today, Chen Jin, general manager of Lenovo China’s mobile phone business department, said in an interview that a Legion Gaming Phone would rely on Legion’s years of deep cultivation in the gaming e-sports field, with its research and development, brand operation, fan user groups and resources to conquer the market of gaming phones.
Chen Jin also said that although the current shipment volume of Lenovo mobile phones is not very large, because of the 4G to 5G conversion process, even in the most competitive Chinese market, Lenovo mobile phones still have the opportunity to fight for success.
So, Lenovo will be betting heavily on 5G phones to get some traction back. At the same time, according to Chen Jin, “the company will be more serious and humble to listen to the voice of users, make better products, better serve Chinese users and serve business partners in China”.
