Lenovo owns the Motorola brand, but it also has its own line of smartphones on the market. In Brazil, it has the Legion Phone Duel, a model focused on games launched in 2020. This year, it won a successor, the Legion Phone Duel 2, which brought some improvements, but was also the target of controversy due to its fragility.
Now, information begins to appear citing its successor, the model that will eventually be called Legion 3 Pro in China and Legion Duel 3 in the rest of the world. Aimed at the gamer audience, one can imagine that performance will be one of its main pillars, and Chen Jin, general manager of Lenovo’s smartphone business in China, confirmed some details.
