Lenovo brought its Legion Gaming series to the smartphone segment a couple of years ago. Now, for 2022, the company is preparing a new contender in the form of the Lenovo Legion Y90. The device is yet to be revealed, but we have been seeing a lot of rumors and leaks about it. According to Lenovo’s official teasers, the device is coming to offer cutting-edge performance with top-notch specifications. Now, a listing on the Master Lu benchmark suggests that the handset is coming to impress hardware enthusiasts.
Today, the makers of Master Lu benchmark found a Lenovo L71601 in their database and believe it is the Lenovo Legion Y90. It posted a running score of 1,110 thousand and a fluency running score of 202.84. For comparison, the iQOO 9, which also boasts the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, scored impressive 1,070 points in the Master Lu Benchmark. The OnePlus 10 Pro and the Realme GT 2 Pro also have the same chipset, scored 967 and 937 points respectively. As a result, we can now say that the Lenovo Legion Y90 is the new king of the Master Lu benchmark.
Lenovo Legion Y90 is a beast in terms of hardware
The recently spotted listing also confirms some additional tidbits about the handset. For instance, it packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC as many other 2022 flagship smartphones. However, this one comes with dual fans to keep the performance running smoothly without throttling. As previously leaked, the handset will be paired with 18 GB of RAM and 1 TB of Internal Storage. This is a computer-like set of specifications. Considering the current Android scene, it’s almost impossible to fill up this RAM unless you’re trying hard to do so. In the same way, 1 TB provides enough room for anything you want to install or store in a smartphone.
In addition to these impressive specs, other details also complete the package and have been leaked before.
Lenovo Legion Y90 will come with a massive 6.92-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and 144 Hz refresh rate. Lenovo is choosing Full HD+ over Quad-HD which ensures extra performance for the GPU. Moreover, the panel has a 720 Hz touch sampling rate and can output HDR content. A company employee shared a screenshot showing that the chipset only got up to 38.9 ºC after half an hour of 120 fps gaming.
Besides this more impressive variant, other versions are coming for all pocket sizes. TENAA’s listing suggests variants with 8 GB, 10 GB, 12 GB, and 16 GB of RAM. In terms of storage, there will be 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB storage versions. The battery is quite big with 5,300 mAh. The entire package makes the phone quite heavy with 252 grams. But that’s understandable when you consider everything.
