Lenovo Legion Y90

We are nearing Q2 2022 and we still have few gaming smartphones launched in the year. Xiaomi announced some few weeks back, but it is now Lenovo turn to introduce theirs. The latest gaming smartphone by Lenovo is Legion Y90, which was announced earlier today.

The usual bells-and-whistle that can be expected on a gaming rig are present, including RGB lighting, customizable shoulder trigger buttons, advanced cooling system (dual fans and liquid cooling in this case), extensive connectivity, and state-of-the-art screen.

It has a 6.9-inch FHD+ E4 AMOLED display with 144Hz refresh rate, and is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 4nm processor, coupled with up to 18GB of LPDDR5 RAM. There are plenty of storage, although limited to 256GB in basic version, while the top-most version gets 512GB (UFS 3.1) storage with 128GB SSD tagged along.

The Legion Y90 does not have microSD slot in case you are wondering. Stereo speakers enhanced by Dolby Atmos are present, and there is an in-display fingerprint reader onboard to quickly unlock the phone. The cameras equipped on the smartphone are not bad—there is a 64MP primary and a 13MP ultra-wide secondary cameras on the back, while it has a single 16MP camera at the front.

The device have two USB-C ports with fast data transmission (up to 10Gbps), reverse charging, OTG, and video output functions. It is backed by a 5600mAh battery with 68W fast charging supports that can fully charge the phone from 0% to 100% within 35 minutes.
