That Lenovo Legion Y700 is an Android tablet with an 8.8-inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel LCD screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor and support for up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 memory and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
Positioned as an Android gaming tablet, the Legion Y700 went on sale in China earlier this year for the equivalent of $ 350 and up. Now you can buy one even if you do not live in China. But you have to pay more and you get support.
This is because the only way to buy Legion Y700 outside of China right now is to download one from AliExpress, which is an online marketplace where Chinese companies can sell products to international customers.
Prices for the Legion Y700 vary from seller to seller. The lowest prices I’ve seen are $ 440 for a model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage or $ 500 for a 12GB / 256GB version, but that tablet comes with a Chinese version of Android that doesn’t have the Google Play Store installed. You can change the system language to English if it is not already configured that way out of the box, but some apps and features may still be in Chinese.
Even vendors claiming to sell a version of the tablet with a “Global ROM” are basically selling a Chinese version of the Lenovo Legion Y700, which has already had the system language changed to English. But at least that version comes with Google Play Store pre-installed, which should make it easier for people outside of China to find and install apps and games.
If you’d rather buy from a company with a decent (but not perfect) track record of shipping Chinese devices to global customers, Giztop also accepts pre-orders for a version of the Lenovo Legion Y900 with Android 12, Google Play and support for English and Chinese. Giztop says the tablet will ship in mid-May 2022, and the store charges $ 499 for an 8GB / 128GB model and $ 599 for a 12GB / 256GB version.
