Lenovo, the Chinese technology player, announced the launch of its gaming brand- 'Legion' in India on Wednesday (17 May). The new gaming brand is the outcome of feedbacks taken from the global community of gamers to better understand what they value most. Legion enters the Indian market with two new gaming laptops, Lenovo Legion Y520 and Y720 designed for gamers who are on-the-go.

The pre-booking of both laptops begins from Friday (19 May) on Flipkart and Lenovo's online store. Lenovo Legion Y520 and Y720 are priced at Rs 92,490 and Rs 149,000 respectively.

With its new technology, the laptops allow for a better gaming experience in every sense - powering VR, better sound with Dolby, optional backlit keyboards, FHD IPS resolution and optimised cooling. Both laptops are equipped with up to 7th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and the latest NVIDIA graphics cards for better performance.

Speaking about the launch, Bhaskar Choudhuri, Marketing Director, Lenovo India said, "We are extremely excited to bring the Legion brand to our fast-growing community of Indian gamers. Gaming continues to be our strategic focus area and the new brand further enhances the Y series portfolio in India. The new Lenovo Legion laptops address every gamer's demand for a superior and immersive experience with VR and outstanding audio capabilities."

Legion Y520
Designed for portability seekers, the Legion Y520 has an aluminum-brushed body and weighs less than 2.5 kgs. The device allows gamers to custom tune audio with the 2 x 2W Harman speakers and Dolby Audio Premium for good audio quality even without headphones. Since most gamers prefer gaming at night, the laptop has an optional red backlit keyboard that provides 1.7 mm of key travel for crisp, accurate, and responsive keystrokes. The laptop comes with up to 128GB of PCIe SSD storage, ideal for reducing the boot-up time and in-game loading, or 1TB of HDD storage, perfect for storing the entire gaming collection.

Legion Y720
Built from the ground up in an all-metal cover, the Legion Y720 laptop is the world's first Dolby Atmos Windows based PC which brings great depth and detail to the overall gaming experience. It makes the game's world come alive with immersive sound providing amazing precision and realism. With NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, the laptop is the India's first Oculus certified VR-ready machine. All you need to do is plug a VR headset into the HDMI port and you're set for the VR experience. It also comes with Thunderbolt 3, the fastest port available on a PC today to plug and play at lightening speeds.

Gamers can enjoy crystal clear screen time with up to FHD IPS anti-glare display on the device. Another outstanding feature is the optional RGB backlit keyboard for those midnight gaming sessions. The laptop comes with the option of an integrated Xbox One Wireless receiver, which can support up to four controllers simultaneously for gaming with friends.
