Lenovo Legion Y70 Launches With A Rather Normal Look
Lenovo Legion Y70
The Lenovo Legion Y70 is the company’s newest gaming smartphone and unsurprisingly, it packs flagship-level hardware inside. What is surprising however is the design as it seems to have ditched the gamer aesthetic in favour of a more…normie look, likely to widen its intended audience and appeal to your average consumer.
The Lenovo Legion Y70 is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and comes with 16GB RAM and 512GB internal storage. To help with thermals, it is equipped with a vapour chamber cooling system with 10 layers of heat dissipation mechanisms. Apart from that, it has a 6.67-inch OLED display with an adaptive 144Hz refresh rate that can go as low as 48Hz.
Users can also expect a dual-speaker setup featuring Dolby Atmos, 5G support, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, X-axis vibration motors, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. You will also get a triple camera setup consisting of a 50MP wide-angle shooter with OIS, a 13MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 2MP depth sensor camera. The selfie camera on the other hand is a 16MP wide-angle shooter with a center-aligned punchhole notch.
All of these will be juiced up by a healthy 5,100mAh battery housed within an aluminum body, complete with 68W fast charging support sans wireless charging. As for OS, it will be running on the Android 12-based ZUi 14 out of the box.
The Lenovo Legion Y70 will be available in China starting 22nd August 2022 with retail prices going from CNY¥2,970 (RM1,952) to CNY¥4,270 (RM2,807) with colour options of black, silver, and red, though availability in other countries and in Malaysia have yet to be announced. We will report more on this as soon as information becomes available so stay tuned.
Pokdepinion: At this point, I’m not even sure if I should call it a gaming phone or not. Sure, you still have the Legion branding but if given what it offers, it seems to be a more generalized product now.
