Lenovo kills off gaming phone business

Legion disbanded

Lenovo has shut down its Legion gaming phone business.

According to Android Authority Lenovo is discontinuing its Android-based Legion mobile gaming phones as part of a wider business transformation and gaming portfolio consolidation.

A Lenovo spokesperson said: “As a leader in gaming devices and solutions, Lenovo is committed to advancing the gaming category across form factors, as well as focusing on where it can bring the most value to the global gaming community.”

Lenovo’s Legion series of handsets hasn’t seen many major releases in recent years with the Legion Phone Y90 from early 2022 only getting a release in select markets. It never made its way to the US. It seems this shutdown of Lenovo's Legion phones may have been the case for some time, but we're only now learning about it.

It is not the only one which wants to kill off its gaming phone line. Xiaomi has also recently been struggling with its Black Shark line, laying off hundreds of workers at its facility.

About the only gaming phone going strong is by ASUS which is still going strong with its ROG Phone series.

The company will release the ROG Phone 7 on April 13.
