The Chinese tech company is working on a gaming phone dubbed Lenovo Halo that will use the company's Legion moniker, according to details shared by famous tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks). The new Lenovo Halo appears to be a standard smartphone as per the image shared on Twitter, with no RGB lighting or customised gaming hardware elements on the body. With Lenovo's Legion branding embossed on the back, the Lenovo Halo seems to have a triple rear camera arrangement.
Under the hood, the Lenovo Halo is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, coupled with up to 16GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. According to the source, the phone could come in 8GB, 12GB, and 16GB RAM configurations, as well as 128GB and 256GB storage options. The Lenovo Halo is tipped to sport a 6.67-inch full-HD+ POLED panel with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 300Hz touch sampling rate.
The triple rear camera setup on the Lenovo Halo could include a 50MP primary sensor, a 13MP secondary lens, and a 2MP tertiary sensor. At the front, it may sport a 16MP selfie camera. The handset is believed to have a 5,000mAh battery that enables 68W fast charging. According to the tipster, the Lenovo Halo gaming smartphone will not succeed the Lenovo Legion Duel 2 and will be released in Q3 2022.
