Lenovo has been teasing its gaming phone for quite a long time. However, we’re to see deeper details about its specifications as well as a launch window. Today, we have yet another teaser shared by the company’s Weibo account. Interestingly enough, rather than teasing any hardware capability, the teaser is focusing in an “immersive horizontal experience”. The company suggests that the Lenovo Legion is a phone to be used in the horizontal orientation.
It’s not the first time that the see the company suggesting this orientation. After all, the handset may with a pop-up selfie camera mounted on the side. The main shooters will appear in the center of the back panel. We don’t know how its usability will compare to modern gaming phones, but it should resemble old devices like the Xperia Play and the legendary Nokia N-Gage.
Rumors indicate that Lenovo will offer exclusive software with extra optimization for the landscape mode. Users will be able to access the Settings menu and its sub-menu on both sides of the screen, thus maximizing the visualization are of the display. Since there is a pop-up camera, we believe that the Lenovo Legion will boast a truly bezel-less display.
According to the leaks, the new handset will pack the Snapdragon 865 SoC, will have 90W fast-charging and a “game-changing liquid cooling technology.” Unfortunately, we have no idea when Lenovo will launch it.
