We’re just four days away from the July 22 launch of Lenovo’s first gaming smartphone from its Legion line. But as early as now, you can already see what it looks like.

(Update, July 22: It’s official! Read Launched: Lenovo Legion Phone Duel gaming phone.)

An actual Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone Pro is shown in a promotional video shared by the company on Chinese social media platform Weibo. The ad focuses on one key feature of the device: a side-mounted pop-up selfie camera, said to be 20 megapixels.

We’d say this looks like a great implementation for those who want to livestream their gaming sessions. Hopefully, the system is as durable as we’d like it to be.

The two rear cameras — a 64-megapixel main shooter paired with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide one — can be seen placed vertically on the right side of the logo. When the smartphone is in landscape mode, that is.

And the Legion branding and logo? They light up, so there’s breathing RGB lighting here, as gaming devices tend to have.

The Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone Pro is the first to use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus chip, which is reportedly 10% better than the regular 865. The handset’s almost 650,000 Antutu benchmark score hints at its raw power. The model benchmarked has 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, but we expect more memory configurations to be sold by the company.

The device is also confirmed to get 99 fan editions and use a new design for heat dissipation, two X-axis linear motors for better in-game vibrating feedback, and an additional USB Type-C port for convenience. It boasts a 144Hz screen and supports 90-watt — or dual 45-watt — fast charging.
