Lenovo has confirmed that it has shut down its Legion gaming phone business. This means that Lenovo will no longer be making gaming phones based on Android.

Lenovo released a statement to Android Authority, saying that the decision is part of a wider business transformation and gaming portfolio consolidation. The company also said that it is committed to advancing the gaming category across form factors and focusing on where it can bring the most value to the global gaming community.

The Lenovo Legion gaming phone series was launched in 2020 and featured some innovative features such as a side-mounted pop-up camera, dual USB-C ports, and a 144Hz display.

However, it seems that the gaming phone market is not very profitable for Lenovo, as it faces competition from other brands such as ASUS, Nubia, and Xiaomi.

Xiaomi’s Black Shark line has also reportedly laid off hundreds of workers recently. While ASUS’s ROG Phone series is still going strong, with a planned release of the ROG Phone 7 this April.

The shutdown of the Lenovo Legion gaming phone business does not affect Lenovo’s other gaming-related products, such as laptops, desktops, monitors, keyboards, mice, and headsets. Lenovo is still a leader in gaming devices and solutions and will continue to offer them to its customers.
