The new gaming phone from Lenovo, the Legion Y70, ditches on the flashy gamer aesthetics but packs top-of-the-line hardware. So, let’s look at the specs, features, price, and availability of the Lenovo Legion Y70 in Nepal.

Lenovo Legion Y70 Overview:

Design and Display

As mentioned earlier, the Legion Y70 looks totally different from the current Legion lineup of gaming smartphones. There is no RGB backlighting or any other gaming aesthetics for that matter. It’s pretty much a normal-looking phone with gaming hardware underneath.

Over on the front, the Lenovo Legion Y70 sports a 6.67” FHD+ display with LG’s P-OLED panel. The screen refreshes at 144Hz and features up to 1500Hz of touch sampling rate.

Performance and Cooling

Talking about hardware, Lenovo Legion Y70 is powered by Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. The chip is a mid-year refresh to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and offers better performance and power efficiency.

To keep it running at the top level for longer, Lenovo has opted for a 10-layer cooling mechanism with multiple graphite layers and the largest vapor chamber of any phone. Alternately, users can get an external active cooler with detachable triggers from Lenovo.

Furthermore, the phone has up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Here, you will find ZUI 14 running on top of Android 12 out of the box in terms of software.

Camera 

At the back, Lenovo Legion Y70 flaunts a triple camera setup led by a 50MP primary sensor. Accompanying it is a 13MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP depth sensor. You can even see a tiny punch-hole on the top of the screen, which means there is no side-mounted pop-up camera as in previous Legion phones. Likewise, the punch-hole encloses a 16MP selfie shooter.

Rest of the specs

Fueling the Legion Y70 is a 5,100mAh battery, and there is support for up 68W charging. For connectivity, the phone has Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax, Bluetooth 5.2, and dual-band GPS.
