Lenovo has teased new Legion-branded desktops and laptops is coming to India. The Legion series of laptops is focused on gaming and it seems like Lenovo is finally ready to jump on the bandwagon. Lenovo will launch a range of Legion-branded laptops and PCs on August 18. We are not sure at the moment what exactly the products will be or what specifications they will carry, but they are definitely going to pack some top-of-the-line hardware to push boundaries in PC gaming.
In a tweet, Lenovo India CEO Rahul Agarwal posted a teaser video of the upcoming Legion laptop with the launch date set for August 18. Towards the end of the teaser video, a huge range of devices is visible, although not quite clear. I see at least four laptops, one of them having a glowing Legion logo on the cover lid, and a CPU. There could also be monitors that will join these products at the launch. But the marquee device among all could be the Legion laptop that has been shown off in the teaser quite well.
The video shows the laptop will have thin bezels and a wide grille on the outside for the fan, which means there is going to be quite a powerhouse processor under the hood. It has to be either the 10th-gen Intel Core or AMD Ryzen processors (or both) on the laptops and desktops Lenovo is going to bring to India. All of the recent laptops, especially in the gaming segment, have the 10th-generation Intel Core processors. Take, for example, the Acer Swift 5 or the HP Omen 15, these laptops are laced with top-notch chipsets with powerful graphics processors from Nvidia or AMD.
Lenovo sells Legion Y-series in India currently for a starting price of Rs 72,190. The base model in the series has the 9th-generation Intel Core i5 processor paired with up to 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 1TB hard drive and 256GB PCIe SSD. It has a stereo speaker as well, for clear audio. With the new Legion series, Lenovo is looking to up the game with latest processors while keeping in mind the price that will set it apart from the competition in the market. The Acer Swift 5 costs Rs 64,990 for the base variant while the HP Omen 15 starts at Rs 79,999. This implies that Lenovo has to get the price right, somewhere along the lines of Rs 60,000, if it wants to attract customers.
