Lenovo announced its new Legion Y70, its first phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Despite the Legion branding, it does away with any gaming aesthetic and instead opted for a sleek design with a strong focus on powerful performance and an enhanced gaming experience.

The Legion Y70 features a 6.67-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support, and up to 1000 nits of brightness. It has a sleek frame measuring just 7.99mm in thickness.

The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 with several configurations of 8GB+128GB, 12GB+256GB, and 16GB+512GB. It has a 10-layer cooling technology, composed of several graphite sheets and a large vapor cooling chamber.

In the camera department, there’s a 50MP main with a large 1/1.55” sensor, alongside a 13MP ultra-wide and a 2MP depth. For selfies, there’s a 16MP camera in front.

Battery capacity is set at 5100mAh with a speedy 68W fast charging.
