Lenovo discontinues Legion gaming phone lineup
We haven’t seen a new Lenovo Legion phone in a while – the Legion Y70 was announced back in August last year and it seems the reasoning behind the long hiatus is that Lenovo has discontinued its Legion gaming phone business.
A Lenovo spokesperson confirmed the departure of the Legion phone lineup in a statement to Android Authority which describes a wider “business transformation and gaming portfolio consolidation”.
Lenovo is discontinuing its Android-based Legion mobile gaming phones as part of a wider business transformation and gaming portfolio consolidation. As a leader in gaming devices and solutions, Lenovo is committed to advancing the gaming category across form factors, as well as focusing on where it can bring the most value to the global gaming community. – Lenovo spokesperson
With the departure of the Legion gaming phones, the industry is left with the Asus ROG Phone lineup, Nubia Red Magic series and Xiaomi’s Black Shark phones as the three main drivers. Lenovo Legion phones had some memorable designs including side pop-up selfie cameras dual charge ports and dedicated cooling fans.
