Lenovo Legion has so far been a brand reserved exclusively for laptops (or peripherals) intended for gaming. Later this year, with the launch of the first Lenovo gaming smartphone, everything will change. The smartphone bearing the Legion logo will face the mobile devices of the ASUS ROG series or Xiaomi Black Shark. The device has been known for at least a month, when Qualcomm confirmed the equipment with the Snapdragon 865 system. The smartphone also has a dedicated page on the Chinese Weibo portal. Now, Pricebaba noticed the Lenovo Legion smartphone on the Chinese patent website CNIPA, from where it extracted the most important information about the specification, as well as the first renders.

In the pictures, the Lenovo Legion smartphone is presented in two colors, red and metallic gray. On the front of the phone there are large frames at the top and bottom, which will certainly be a better solution in gaming than the almost frameless design. On the upper frame there is a selfie camera with a speaker for conversations. On the back panel, apart from the cams, there is also the recognized Legion logo. Interestingly, the back panel appears to be transparent in both colors, revealing the inscriptions confirming some key details about the smartphone's specifications.

One of them informs about the Snapdragon 855 system, however, as the Snapdragon 865 model has already been confirmed, it can be assumed that the render concerns a device prototype. We also see a physical fan with the word “Cool” next to it. This could be a new cooling technology that Lenovo announced a moment ago. Another inscription reveals that the smartphone will be equipped with a huge 5050 mAh battery. Lenovo has already confirmed that it will provide fast charging with a power of at least 55 W. We can also notice the triple camera module at the back. On the right side, Legion has several buttons, including a power button, volume keys and a mechanical slider (mute?).

On the left, in turn, the USB C port is visible (as in the case of the smartphone ASUS ROG Phone 2), which means that Lenovo may also release a series of phone accessories after some time. At the bottom we see the slide-out SIM card tray, the main USB Type-C port and a single speaker grille. There are two more speakers at the top. For now, nothing is known about the upcoming smartphone, but rumors suggest that it will also operate on LPDDR5 RAM, the latest UFS memory and a refresh rate of 144 Hz.
