Lenovo launched the Legion Y70 gaming device at their big event today as well as other devices, having a price tag of $485. This is the first phone from the company to feature Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip.
The Lenovo Legion Y70 looks more like a normal phone, compared to their previous gaming phones, like the Legion duel. The Phones comes with a 6.67″ OLED display having a FHD+ display, and 144Hz refresh rate.
Lenovo claims to have over “10 layers” of cooling solutions under this display, which should be the reason why the fingerprint scanner is mounted on the power button instead of being under the display like ever other devices around this price tag.
The Lenovo Legion Y70 is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, aided by 8GB/12GB/16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The software part is controlled by ZUI 14, but Lenovo hasn’t made mention of any android version, but it’s probably Android 12.
Cameras on the Legion Y70 are looking great, at least on paper. There’s a 50 MP main 1.155″ sensor, a 13 MP ultra-wide sensor having a 120-degree FoV and a 2 MP depth sensor making up the triple camera setup.
The battery capacity of the Legion Y70 is 5,100 mAh and it supports 68W fast charging, no mention of wireless or reverse wireless charging.
Gaming devices always come with some cool accessories, and Lenovo isn’t missing out on that one. The Legion Y70 comes with shoulder triggers, a protective case, and an air cooler.
