Lenovo‘s first 2019 flagship phone i.e., the Lenovo Z6 Pro debuted in April. But the company hasn’t launched any phone this year. Recent reports have revealed that the Lenovo Legion will be one of the first phones from the company to launch this year. As the name goes, it will be a gaming-centric phone powered by Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. Now, Lenovo shares that the Lenovo Legion gaming phone will support 90W fast charging, making it the world’s fastest charging smartphone.
Currently, OPPO’s 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 is available as the world’s fastest wired charging technology. Xiaomi and Vivo have been respectively testing 100W and 120W fast charging technologies, but they are still not available for general users. An earlier report had claimed that Lenovo Legion gaming smartphone’s fast charging capabilities will surpass 55W. Today, the company revealed that’s 90W charging is not sum up of wired charging, wireless charging, and reverse charging. The handset will indeed support 90W superfast charging!
The 90W charging tech from Lenovo will raise the competition bar higher when it comes to charging a phone in lesser time. OPPO’s SuperVOOC 2.0 can charge a 4,000mAh battery in around half an hour. The 90W charging tech is expected to charge the same-sized battery at a faster rate.
At present, there isn’t no information on the battery capacity of the Lenovo Legion gaming phone. Rumors have claimed that it could be backed by a 5,050mAh battery. It remains to be seen whether Lenovo Legion phone will also arrive with wireless charging and reverse wireless charging features.
The other specs of the Lenovo Legion gaming smartphone are currently under wraps. The renders of an early prototype of the smartphone had surfaced last month. It revealed that the phone may come with a unibody metallic chassis with an LED integrated “LEGION” logo. The handset may sport three rear cameras, and for a smooth gaming experience, it could be equipped with a liquid cooling solution. Other features that were revealed through the renders included a notch-less screen, a pair of USB-C ports,, and shoulder buttons for gaming.
