Lenovo Legion will be the first in the world with Snapdragon 865+
Update 18/07: confirmation from Lenovo arrives. We talk about it at the end of the article.
Lenovo Legion coming with Snapdragon 865+: does the new chipset really exist then?
The reason for this noise is easy to say: the news in question comes directly from Digital Chat Station, a usually reliable Chinese leaker (and not at all accustomed to all-smoke advances). Obviously, as usual in these cases it is an indiscretion to be taken with pliers and Lenovo and Qualcomm will confirm or deny this novelty. According to the leaker, the Lenovo Legion gaming smartphone will be moved by the Snapdragon 865+, a solution anticipated by various rumors and yet totally excluded by the management of Meizu.
Other reports also reported that Qualcomm had no intention of launching a Plus model (unlike what happened last year with the Snap 855+). As for the rest of the features, the leaker focuses on the display with a refresh rate higher than 90 Hz, on the very powerful 90W recharge (but which has recently generated many doubts), on the dual speaker configuration.
In addition, Lenovo Legion will have a double Type-C port (side and bottom) and a greater number of sensors dedicated to temperature monitoring. To conclude – yes, we left the best in the end – the leaker reports July 2020 as the release period. Will it really be so? You just have to wait for further advances or new posters from Lenovo!
If before it was only an indiscretion, now it is truth. The news comes directly from the manufacturer: Lenovo Legion will actually be the first in the world to implement Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865+ SoC. It will only be a matter of time, however, before the chipset is also implemented by other manufacturers. Starting with ROG Phone 3 and – perhaps – Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra.
