Gaming smartphones have been a thing for a few years, typically packing high-end specs and special features including enhanced cooling, display, and touch latency into a smartphone-sized package.

Now it looks like Lenovo is planning to do the same for tablets. A Lenovo Legion Tablet may be coming soon. Update: Lenovo has revealed that the Lenovo Legion Y700 will be an 8.8 inch gaming tablet with a 120 Hz display

Details are light at the moment, but a couple of Lenovo executives have posted images on Weibo, one showing the front of a small tablet and the other showing the back, with the company’s gaming-centric “Legion” branding in the corner.

According to ITHome, the tablet is expected to have an 8 inch display, which would make the tablet just a little larger than Lenovo’s Legion Phone Duel 2, a gaming phone with a Snapdragon 888 processor, up to 18GB of RAM, and a 6.92 inch display.

But like most gaming phones, the tablet doesn’t appear to have any built-in game controllers, which sets it apart from Android-powered handheld gaming consoles like the AYN Odin or the leaked/rumored Lenovo Legion Play. That could make this Legion Tablet a general-purpose device that can be comfortably used for media consumption, web browsing, document editing, or other tasks as well as gaming.

There’s no word on the specs, price, or expected release date.

  1. I guess it’s good that I don’t run a business because I don’t understand why people would buy a “gaming” phone especially for the lackluster (to me) Android gaming because these must sell well for them to keep going and even expand to tablets.

    Maybe they’re super popular in China. I’ve heard gaming is somewhat popular there.

    1. The Razer phones had nice feature sets, as did the first RoG phone, but then one ceased production and the other got huge. Still, most “gaming phones” at least have shoulder buttons, which are useful for emulation. And maybe some kids outside of the US think they look cool and will ask their parents to buy them on looks alone (kids in the US just use iPhones because they’ll stop being friends with any kid who makes their iMessage bubbles green-seriously).

      This tablet on the other hand, I don’t know what the point of it is. It looks very generic. And I’m kinda under the impression that most new android games render at 2:1 aspect ratios, and people would think it’s a problem if the device isn’t that.
