Lenovo Legion Y70: everything you need to know
Design and display
So what does the Legion Y70 look like in terms of design? Compared to the previous Phone Duel 2 we have a style closer to that of classic smartphones, without aggressive gaming lines and without particular signs (such as the retractable selfie camera and the central camera of the aforementioned Phone Duel). The camera bumper is rectangular in shape with polygonal edges, making it almost an elongated octagon.
The colors chosen are very interesting, given that in addition to dark gray and silver, Lenovo has chosen a red-black color, very reminiscent of that of Lenovo Vibe X2, presented 8 years ago, but also the Vibe Shot, which, however, only had the frame in red. Another interesting detail is related to the thickness of the smartphone, since it will often be alone 7.99 mmmaking it one of the thinnest top-of-the-range gaming phones on the market.
Frontally, we have instead a AMOLED display da 6.67" Full HD + with a refresh rate a 144 Hz adaptive (48/60/90/120/144 Hz) and a touch sampling rate a 1.500 Hz. There is no shortage of DC Dimming, HDR10 +, 1.000 nits peak brightness and color gamut 3% DCI-P100.

For the battery we find a unit from 5.100 mAh (always very good given the thickness) with fast charging from 68W, which in any case is within the parameters for a smartphone that tries to change the rules of the mobile gaming sector in terms of price. To this we also add Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi 6 and fingerprint under the screen. The dissipation system is also interesting Vapor Chamber in macro area with 10 layers of 5.048 mm2 but very thin, as it is only thick 0.55 mm, for a total coverage of over 36.000 mm2. For the software present Android 12 with interface ZUI 14.
Camera side, Legion Y70 find three rear sensors with the main from 50 MP, with OIS, accompanied by a 13 MP wide angle and a 2 MP for depth of field. Interesting that you can turn videos in 8K. Different speech instead for the selfie camera, which will be from 13 MP closed in a punch-hole.
