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.
Gizchina News of the week
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.
