Two weeks after Lenovo Philippines posted a photo on its Facebook page hinting at a comeback in the Philippines, the PC-turned-mobile manufacturer has teased three phones since then. These are the Lenovo Z6 and Z6 Pro ,as well as a gaming phone that may be carrying the company’s Legion gaming branding from its PC lineup.
Lenovo phones are staging a comeback in the Philippines
The Chinese company has not stopped releasing phones even with the tougher competition last year — resulting in mobile market share loss from the likes of Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo. In the Philippines, if memory serves us right, it’s been almost three years since the company launched a phone. This 2020, it’s no secret that Lenovo is staging a comeback to compete in the flagship and mid-range markets.
The very latest teaser is a photo of three Lenovo phones — if we’re to guess, the left one is the Lenovo Z6 with the middle one being the Z6 Pro. While the right-most model is the Z6 Youth. These phones feature Snapdragon 730, SD 855, and SD 710, respectively. While the two come with triple cameras, the Pro model has a quad-camera setup. In China, the Z6 came with a starting price of CNY 1,899 ~P14k for the 6GB/64GB model while the Youth Edition launched for CNY 1,199 ~P9K. For the Z6 Pro, the base model of 6GB/128GB started at CNY 2,899 ~P22K.
As exciting as it may seem, perhaps the best thing about these teasers is the Legion gaming phone. No one knows regarding the device except for Lenovo. If our guess is correct, it’s the first gaming phone from the company and will compete against Asus ROG 2 and Xiaomi Black Shark 2 series. For now, we’ll just have to wait for more juicy details from the company.
