Lenovo’s been teasing its upcoming Legion gaming phone since late last year. Now the folks at xda-developers have obtained a few promotional videos for the upcoming phone, and they’ve posted a few pictures that give us an idea of what to expect… and it seems like we should expect a weird phone.

Among other things, it may support 90W fast charging using two USB-C ports at the same time. And in order to maximize the screen-to-body ratio, there’s no visible camera on the front of the phone — instead there’s a pop-up camera that rises from the side of the phone rather than the top.

There’s still no word on the price, release date, or whether this phone will be available outside of China — although the decision to use the Legion brand and English lettering suggests it could see an international launch.

  1. I for one don’t mind it being on the side. Possible extra grip surface while video calling, possible incentive to not do vertical video calls which might work out better for people answering with their PCs.
    I also REALLY don’t mind it being a pop up.
    I just hope it doesn’t feed speculation that always-on front cameras are an NSA requirement by way of it not getting a US release.

  2. It might be interesting to see Asus Tinker Edge R benchmarked against RPi and Google Coral dev board. Until then, it is just a curiosity.
