You’d almost never know it’s a gaming phone from Lenovo
Lenovo is set to release another new gaming phone in the future, which is rumored to be called the Halo and it will be part of Lenovo’s Legion line of gaming devices. The phone was spotted by Android Police, and you could almost mistake it for a regular old Android device with a premium build design. The leak is of a front and back image thanks to Evan Blass. Otherwise known as evleaks on Twitter.
This would be Lenovo’s third official gaming phone under the Legion brand. After Legion Phone Duel and Legion Phone Duel 2. It’s also the only one that doesn’t take on the same aesthetic you’d normally associate with a gaming device. Most of them have flashy design details, lighting RGB and other features that some might consider flashy or unnecessary.
The Lenovo Legion Halo phone has an unassuming look
If you glanced at this device, just for a second or two, you probably wouldn’t pay attention to it and ‘gaming’ would probably be the last thing you would imagine this phone was designed for. And that’s probably what Lenovo wants. An unassuming yet powerful gaming device that looks like a standard high-end smartphone.
But it’s not the exterior that counts here. It’s what’s inside that counts. And based on Blass’ leaked specs, the Lenovo Legion Halo Phone is a sleeper device packed with crazy performance. It has a 6.67-inch FHD+ POLED display, which also comes with a 144Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate.
The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon SM8475 mobile platform, which runs on a 4nm process with an Adreno 730 GPU for graphics. That’s paired with options for 8GB, 12GB, or 16GB of DDR5 RAM, along with 128GB or 256GB of storage.
There’s also a 5,000mAh battery inside as well as a triple camera array on the back. Consisting of a 50-megapixel main sensor and additional 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors. Then there’s a 16-megapixel front camera.
Even more impressively, Lenovo would have integrated all these components into an 8 mm thick frame. So it shouldn’t be bulky in your pocket at all. It is said to be released in the third quarter of this year. Although the leak does not mention any specific date or regional availability.
