Lenovo seems to be working on a new gaming-centric smartphone under its coveted Legion brand. Legion is Lenovo’s gaming subsidiary brand that sells laptops exclusively made for gamers. The Chinese OEM has created a dedicated social media page for the Lenovo Legion gaming phone on Weibo. While Lenovo is yet to confirm the upcoming Legion gaming phone series, the account is verified and owned by Lenovo Mobile Communications Technology (Beijing) Co, Ltd. The company has also shared a trio of mobile gaming videos as a teaser so far. Features of the handset, of course, remain unknown at the moment.

Lenovo already has a gaming-focused lineup in its portfolio in China. The vendor has been launching such smartphones under its iQOO lineup, which was launched earlier this year. The new Legion lineup from Lenovo seems to be similar to ASUS. The Taiwanese phonemaker launches its gaming smartphone under its gaming-subsidiary brand Republic of Gamers (ROG).

The ASUS ROG Phone 2 is the latest offering in the lineup, which packs a 6.59-inch 120Hz AMOLED display, Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC, Android 9.0 Pie with custom ROG UI skin on top, and Game Cooling II to disperse heat from the system. The entire setup is driven by a 6,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging support. In terms of optics, the ROG Phone 2 houses a dual-camera setup at the back consisting of a 48-megapixel primary snapper and a 13-megapixel secondary ultra-wide lens. On the front, there is a 24MP snapper for selfies and video chats. The ASUS ROG Phone 2 price in India starts at Rs 37,999.
