If a new rumor is to be believed, then Lenovo may launch the Legion Gaming phone next month.

A new report from GSM Arena citing Rescuer Gaming Phone on the Chinese social platform Weibo, states that Lenovo plans to launch the Legion Phone in July.

The leak that accompanies this rumor is an image. It shows off the Legion branding along with the logo, and some wording in Chinese. This may suggest that a launch is happening in China only at first. However, the Legion Phone is going to have fierce competition that will release outside of China. So Lenovo may still choose to release the device globally.

The Legion Phone launch doesn’t have a confirmed date

Rescuer Gaming Phone appears to be the official handle for Lenovo’s Legion brand on Weibo.

In the post, Lenovo acknowledges that fans have been “waiting for a ling time,” and that it would see everyone in July. While it does note July, hinting at an unveiling event in the weeks ahead, it doesn’t actually mention an exact date.

That leaves an entire month open for a potential reveal. But it also means that the phone will at the very least release this Summer. Whether that’s China only or global remains to be seen.

A July unveiling shouldn’t be surprising

Lenovo hadn’t really given out much information before now about a launch event. But it shouldn’t be too big of a shock that July now seems to be the time frame.

Back on June 2 it was discovered that the Legion Phone was certified in China. Which sort of suggested that a reveal event was probably close. How close was still uncertain but speculation arose that it would be sometime this Summer.

Now that’s more or less confirmed. And all that’s left is to wait and see if Lenovo announces an official date.

The Legion Phone is Lenovo’s entry into the gaming smartphone market, competing with the likes of ASUS and its upcoming ROG Phone III that is rumored to launch sometime in the third quarter of 2020.

Lenovo has hinted that the phone would come with some pretty exciting features. Such as an innovative cooling technology. The phone has also been rumored to come with a Snapdragon 865 Plus mobile platform. It’s also may come with a 144Hz display for a super fast refresh rate, a pop-up camera, and a number of other gaming-focused features to help it stand out from similar devices.
