Lenovo Legion Camera Placed in Interesting Location

A lot has been said about the new gaming smartphone from Lenovo - Legion. However, only today it became known about the special uniqueness of the novelty. It will be the first device of this type in the history of the company.

The main camera of the device consists of two lenses horizontally oriented relative to each other with LED flashes. They were placed almost in the center of the back panel, just above the triangular Y-shaped logo.

The front camera is located on the side (!) of the smartphone, in the center.


Not everyone will like this, but you need to understand that we are talking about a gaming smartphone. Most of those who buy it will use the machine to play games. A gamer involved in this process will need a camera in this place for streaming. This is the most convenient way to cover all the events in which he is a participant. It is also known that the Lenovo Legion was equipped with a display with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and 90-watt charging. If the latter is true, then it will take very little time to replenish the energy reserves of its battery. Network informants attribute the device to have two USB-C ports. The first was placed in the center of the base of the smartphone in its usual place, and the other - in the center of the lower part on the side.

This is good news. Two of these connectors allow the device to perform many more functions than one, as provided in most smartphones. This approach even eliminates the need for a traditional headphone jack. The charger can be connected to one USB-C port, and to the second - headphones.

It is assumed that the device will be used in landscape mode. It was for him that all the functionality of Lenovo Legion was adjusted by the developers.

It is not yet known when the device will start selling.

In order for the chip to work in fifth-generation networks, it will receive a Snapdragon X60 (mmWave) modem with download speeds up to 7.5 Gbps. It has already been proven to be compatible with 4-channel LPDDR5 RAM.

Nothing has been reported about the performance and energy efficiency of the new item. Considering that it was developed according to the 5-nm process technology, the model should significantly surpass the existing analogues in these indicators.
