China regulator ‘certifies Lenovo gaming phone’

Lenovo's new Legion gaming phone is likely to hit the market soon after it was reportedly certified by the Chinese communications regulator TENAA.

According to a report on the consumer electronics website Pocket-lint, the Lenova Legion Y90 appeared on a post on TENAA’s website under the model number L71061.

TENAA reportedly revealed some of the specifications of the new phone which include a 6.9-inch Full HD+ (2460 x 1080) display with a 144Hz refresh rate. The post also revealed the phone’s color options: black, white, blue, cyna, green, gold, red, silver and gray.

Other specifications revealed by the regulator match an earlier leak about the new model, namely that it will feature Qualcomm's new  Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, up to 18GB of RAM, 4GB of virtual RAM, and a total of 640GB of storage across dual-channels.

It was also reported that the phone will feature a dual-camera setup found on the rear, with a 48- or 64-megapixel main sensor. The phone will house a 6-megapixel camera.

It is not unusual for TENAA to reveal the specifications of phones made by Chinese manufacturers that it is certifying. In 2019, for example, TENAA posted details about the specifications of the Xiaomi Redmi 7 ahead of their official launch.
