- A retail listing and a tipster have outed renders of the upcoming Lenovo Legion gaming phone.
- There’s no notch or punch-hole on the phone display.
- The dual rear camera setup rests in the middle of the back panel.
Lenovo will launch its first gaming smartphone and competitor to the Asus ROG Phone 3 on July 22. Ahead of its official reveal, Chinese retailer JD.com has put up the device on pre-order. The listing has been live for a few days now but it previously did not include any images of the phone.
Now, the retailer has added several renders showing the upcoming Legion gaming phone in its entirety. First of all, the phone is listed as the Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone Pro, so we’re not sure if this is a higher-end model or if it’s the only phone Lenovo plans to launch. Nevertheless, the design is what’s key here and it confirms previous leaks and rumors.
The Lenovo Legion gaming phone features red accents on the top and bottom of the all-screen display. There’s no notch or punch-hole here and that’s because the device is expected to come with a side-mounted pop-up camera. Yeah, that sounds strange but Lenovo probably built the side selfie camera keeping in mind gamers who live-stream games.
The back of the gaming phone features a prominent Legion logo at the center. The logo appears to be glowing red but there’s probably RGB lighting in there similar to Aura lighting on the ROG Phone 2. The horizontally aligned dual primary camera setup is placed right above the logo with a flash that sits just below it.

We can’t make out if the Legion gaming phone has physical trigger buttons but there are red accents near all four corners of the phone. These could have something to do with gaming controls but we can’t really say for sure.
Meanwhile, tipster Digital Chat Station has also shared clearer renders of the phone in two color options. One of them shows the device in the same black and red color scheme as the retail listing while the other image shows a silver colored phone, again with red accents.
