Lenovo has unveiled in March its first gaming phone of 2022, the Lenovo Legion Y90. Just like other gaming phones, the device was introduced with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. However, as you may expect, not everyone is happy with the performance of this chip. Most of the OEMs are moving to launch new smartphones with the newer, improved, Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. Lenovo will not be an exception and seems to be preparing a new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1-powered smartphone. The device has passed through the Geekbench benchmark database with the codename Lenovo Legion Halo.
The particular version of the Lenovo Legion Halo has 8 GB of RAM and is the lowest available for a Legion gaming phone. The Lenovo Legion Y90, for instance, packs 12 GB of RAM and goes up to 18 GB of RAM. Perhaps, Lenovo is aiming to bring a cheaper base model. The device with codename L71091 model number also passed the 3C certification. The listing confirms 68 W fast-charging which is on par with the Lenovo Legion Y90. As far as the battery capacity is concerned the device will come with a 5,000 mAh battery. The device scored 1299 points in the Single-core tests and 3,953 in the multi-core department. As you may expect, the device runs Android 12 OS.
Lenovo Legion Halo alleged specifications
Other rumored specifications include a 6.67-inch P-OLED panel with a Full HD+ resolution. The device also has a 144 Hz refresh rate and 300 Hz touch sampling rate. That will effectively make the Halo smaller than the Lenovo Legion Y90. This one has a 6.92-inch panel, but it also has a bigger battery with a 5,660 mAh capacity. Other leaks suggest a triple-camera array with a 50 MP main camera, a 13 MP ultrawide, and a 2 MP module. There is also a 16 MP selfie shooter, and up to 256 GB of Internal Storage.
The tipster Digital Chat Station states that are over 13 smartphones coming with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. The Lenovo Legion Halo is one of them.
