While Lenovo has pulled out of the gaming smartphone market, the company is still working on gaming tablets. Next up in this department is the Lenovo Legion Y700 (2023), a sequel to last year’s Y700. The new model will be launched on July 22 (Saturday).
The Lenovo Legion Y700 (2023) offers plenty of performance with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and LPDDR5X RAM. Compared to the Snapdragon 870 of the previous year’s model, the performance has increased significantly, while the battery capacity remains the same at 6,550 mAh. The dimensions of the compact Lenovo tablet have been further reduced. The thickness drops from 7.9 to 7.6 mm and the weight from 375 to 348 g.
The CNC-machined body houses an 8.8-inch LCD display with a 2.5K resolution and a refresh rate of 144 Hz (previously 120 Hz). It covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space and achieves a peak brightness of 500 nits. The display also supports pen input and recognizes 4,096 pressure levels.
The Lenovo Legion Y700 (2023) also has two USB-C ports, which is pretty rare to find. One port is exactly where you would expect it to be, the other on the long side. For example, you can connect one to a power supply and the other to an external display. Above is the official hands-on video from Lenovo’s Legion Weibo Account.
