Lenovo’s Legion lineup has been limited to gaming laptops since inception. However, rumors at the beginning of 2020 suggested the brand could expand to the rapidly evolving gaming phone segment. ASUS, Xiaomi, and many more brands have already released specialized gaming phones and the category has trended for a long time now.

Folks over at XDA Developers have massively leaked pretty much everything about Lenovo’s upcoming gaming phone. The phone has been teased on Weibo for quite some time and the recent leak gives us a more detailed look.

The most striking feature of the phone is a side pop-up camera that has been in high demand from streamers. A conventional camera placement gets covered while gaming and this feature would let streamers provide a perfect frame while gaming. The leak also suggests the front camera could be coupled with a soft flash for better lighting.

The pop-up slide module shall have a 20-megapixel selfie camera. On the rear, we can see a dual-camera setup consisting of a 64-megapixel primary sensor and a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens.

The USB-C port is located on the left side of the phone along with one on the bottom. It will also have a dual-cell battery, providing 5000mAh of power when combined. Additionally, Lenovo has teased 90W fast charging technology.

It’s expected to have a Full HD+ display with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 270Hz touch sampling rate. While memory configurations remain unknown, it shall leverage LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage. As previously teased by Lenovo, the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 865 SoC.

The phone will allegedly house a 3D cooling tower structure with dual heat pipe partitions for long-lasting cooling. Lastly, it’ll sport positive stereo sound via full symmetrical 65mm dual speakers and dual 0.6mm amp speaker system.

The price or availability details of the phone remain a mystery right now.

Animal Crossing is launching a ColourPop makeup collection

Featuring your favorite characters

Published

on

Despite a full slate of exciting games last year, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was one of the most influential games of 2020. The island life simulator allowed everyone stuck at home to connect with another despite the pandemic. However, even with the gameplay, the game is just so darn cute. If you wholeheartedly agree (and why wouldn’t you?), Nintendo is collaborating with ColourPop for an Animal Crossing-themed makeup collection.

In its announcement post on Twitter, Nintendo unveiled four color palettes in the collection. The forefront of the collection features Isabelle’s yellow complexion and her cute-as-a-button pink top. If you’re looking for something more inspired, Blathers and Celeste have their own color palette featuring combination of their colors. For the stylish, the Able Sisters shine in purple and lilac. If, however, you’re looking for capitalist chic, Tom Nook has his own palette featuring his cash-money green.

The Animal Crossing x ColourPop collection will launch on January 28. Though only four palettes were showcased, the collection might include further characters. Besides the main characters around your island, the game also has a wide variety of cute potential villagers.
