Lenovo, China’s marketing director, today shared pictures of the company’s 135-watt USB C charger for Legion series laptops. This charger supports PD 3.1 protocol, which means that Legion laptops will also support this standard.
The USB-IF Association introduced the new USB-PD 3.1 standard in May 2021, with an increase in output power, according to Gizmochana. This protocol significantly increases the charging power compared to PD 3.0. For comparison, the standard charging power of PD 3.0 is equal to 100 watts, which has been upgraded to 240 watts in PD 3.1.
Following the adoption of the new PD 3.1 protocol, Lenovo’s top laptops, including the Legion series and the company’s regular laptops, will likely abandon the traditional quad-charging interface; This means that the next model of these laptops will support higher charging speeds, and thus all their devices will need only one USB C port to power.
Lenovo is working on several new products to expand its Legion product line. Some of the company’s expected products include the Legion Y90 gaming phone, the Legion Y700 gaming tablet and the Legion Y700P gaming laptop, all of which will be launched in 2022.
Apparently, the Legion Y7000P laptop will be equipped with a 2K display. The display is also expected to feature a 16-to-9 aspect ratio and a 165Hz refresh rate. No further details are available for this laptop at this time. More information may be released in the coming days.
