Besides a new Legion gaming smartphone, Lenovo will also launch a Legion gaming tablet, Legion Y700, soon. An executive has shared more information regarding the tablet today in a blog post on Weibo. From there, we know that the tablet will come with an interesting viewing mode and the chip that it'll be using. 

Lenovo product manager, Lin Lin, says that the Lenovo gaming tablet will arrive with a feature named Ultra-Wide Viewing Mode. Most tablets come with either a 16:10 or a 16:9 aspect ratio display, and so does the Legion Y700. Therefore, the mode will help users get more screen content in select MOBA games like Honor of Kings and League of Legends. It works by placing black bars at the top and the bottom to allow more content to appear at the sides.

Besides that, through a reply, Lin also revealed that the Legion Y700 will get powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC. Previous rumours suggested that the tablet would be slightly larger than the Apple iPad mini 6th Generation with an 8.8-inch display. It could also bring a resolution of 2560 × 1600 pixels, 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut.
