Info on Lenovo’s upcoming hardware launch has been steadily trickling in over the past few weeks. An event is set for February 28 where apparently Lenovo will be unveiling the at least four new Legion devices – the Y90 gaming smartphone, which has already been the subject of a few, extensive leaks and teasers, also at least two gaming laptops – the Y7000P and Y9000P, with 12th gen Intel CPUs and an Y700 gaming tablet.
Most of this info has already been known in some capacity, but details on the Legion Y700 tablet have now started to amass including a full specs sheet and a set of early hands-on photos. Let’s start with hardware first as summarized by a convenient leaked specs table, covering both the Y90 phone and Y700 tablet.
The Y700 is rocking an 8.8-inch, 2560 x 1600-pixel, 120Hz LCD display, with an advertised 500 nits of brightness with DC dimming, Dolby Vision and HDR10 support. Powering it – a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset, paired with either an 8GB/128GB or 12GB/256GB LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage combo and a vapor chamber to keep things cool.
The Y700 has a 6,650 mAh battery and supports 45W charging with PD and QC support. It will ship with a 50W charger.
Some of its other cool features include a USB 3.1 Gen 2 port, which should mean data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps. Also, dual x-linear motors for advanced haptic feedback in games and stereo JBL speakers. There is a 3.5mm jack also on board and a 13MP main and 8MP selfie cameras.
