Lenovo’s Halo gaming phone won’t make the same mistake as its rivals India News, The Indian Express
The nice thing about flashy gaming PCs is that they stay at home. Only guests and burglars will ever see your gaming rig and think, “wow, this person is such a big sucker.” But you can’t say the same about gaming phones, which look super nerdy and travel with you everywhere.
Obviously we need a more mature gaming phone for adults who still have a sense of pride (or in my case an unbridled fear of being judged by others). And it seems Lenovo is up to the task. In newly leaked images of @evleaksthe powerful Lenovo Halo gaming phone looks like a business person’s device, without RGB lighting or a crazy paint job.
Despite its modest design, the Lenovo Halo is a beast. The 6.67-inch 1080p OLED panel has a 144Hz refresh rate, plus a 300Hz polling rate to reduce input lag. It has a flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and comes with up to 256 GB of storage and 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. There’s also 68 watts of charging, a 50MP main camera, plus a set of unidentified 13MP and 2MP cameras.
Now, the Lenovo Halo isn’t necessarily the first “good looking” gaming phone. Other devices, like the Red Magic 6R, have an understated design that doesn’t necessarily scream “gamer”. But the Lenovo Halo goes a bit further – apart from the Legion logo, it just looks like a normal smartphone.
But here’s the bad news; Lenovo rarely launches its phones outside of China. Leaks suggest the Halo will go on sale in the third quarter of this year (between July and October), but if we want the device to arrive in the United States, Europe or other regions, we may have to start begging.
