Soon, Lenovo will uncover its next-gen gaming smartphone dubbed the Lenovo Legion Y90. Though there is no official release date, looking at the frequency of the posters, we can assume that its launch is around the corner.
Well, before we are waiting for the company to announce the launch date, some key features have managed to spot. What’s more important this is quite accurate information as it comes our way from TENAA.
On TENAA, the Lenovo Legion Y90 has the model number L71061. The listing shows that the phone will sport a 6.9-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution (2460×1080 pixels). Other than that, the display will have a 144Hz refresh rate.
Also, we can see that the phone will have multiple color options – black, white, blue, cyan, green, gold, red, silver, and gray.
Our protagonist will also have various storage variants, including 8GB, 12GB, 16GB, and even 18GB of RAM with up to 4GB of virtual RAM support as well as 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options.
On the rear panel, we can see a dual-camera system. Those sensors will correspond to the 48MP or 64MP main cameras. Surprisingly, the TENAA listing shows that the main camera has an 8MP output. We guess the system shows the pixel-binned output. The second lens of the camera should be a 16MP ultrawide sensor. But this information is not confirmed by the TENAA listing. On the front, the Lenovo Legion Y90 will carry an 8MP camera.
Under the hood, this handset will house the most powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC clocked at 2.995GHz. The battery will consist of two 2,650mAh units, which is 5300mAh in total. The smartphone is expected to come with 68W fast charging support as well.
The phone dimensions are 177×78.1×10.9 and it weighs 252 grams. Yes, it’s heavy but it’s not accidental. We mean the Lenovo Legion Y90 will use dual fans for extra cooling as well as a pop-up selfie camera, embedded in the right-hand side.
In addition, the “dual-engine air cooling” is similar to the “dual turbo fan supercharged liquid cooling system” of the previously released Legion e-sports mobile phone 2 Pro, which should be the latter’s upgraded version. So we know that such an approach ensures rapid heating reduction from the middle to both sides.
This cooling system is also very good in suppressing the heat of the Snapdragon 8 platform. We know that in tests, after playing a 20-minute 122-frame game, the phone temperature was 38.9 degrees. Moreover, the hottest part of the handset was 38℃ after playing Honor of Kings in the 90Hz mode for 30 minutes.
