Lenovo Halo Gaming Phone with Upcoming Snapdragon Flagship Chip in Works

Lenovo Legion Y90 is an upcoming gaming phone for the Chinese market. Like the recent flagships, the Y90 will be equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 chipset. A fresh leak claims that the company is working on another smartphone which carries a ‘Halo’ codename. It is speculated to be fueled by Qualcomm’s new flagship chip.

Lenovo Halo Specifications (Rumored)

The Lenovo Halo has a 6.67-inch P-OLED display that offers a Full HD+ resolution. The screen will offer a 144Hz refresh rate and a 300Hz touch sampling rate. The leak states that the device is powered by an upcoming Qualcomm chip that has a part number of SM8475. It will be a 4nm chip featuring the Adreno 730 graphics.

To recall, the existing Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip that includes the Adreno 730 GPU has an SM8450 part number. The SM8475 part number and the inclusion of the same Adreno GPU in the new chip suggests that it could be an enhanced version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It is likely that the U.S. based chip maker may announce it with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus moniker in the near future.

Coming back to the Lenovo Halo, the same leak revealed that the device will be shipped with 8 GB / 12 GB / 16 GB of DDR5 RAM and 128 GB / 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The handset will be backed by a 5,000mAh battery that supports 68W fast charging. For photography, it will feature a 16-megapixel front camera and a 50-megapixel + 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel triple rear camera unit.

Finally, the leaked render of the Lenovo Halo shows that it has a punch-hole display on the front. The Legion branding on the rear shell of the device indicates that it will be a gaming-focused phone with a subdued design.
