As you can see, Lenovo really used the best hardware that smartphones are currently equipped with. The Legion 2 Pro has a cool E4 AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate and a sensor polling rate of up to 720Hz, which is important when gaming. Paired with the Snapdragon 888 chipset, up to 18GB of RAM can be installed.
Obviously, the camera in a gaming smartphone is far from the most important component. However, the front module has a resolution of 44 MP and supports 4K recording. So you can safely use it for streaming. By the way, the front camera comes out of the side end, implying that you will be using the smartphone in a horizontal orientation most of the time.
In total, eight additional keys are available to users for a more comfortable gaming experience. They are located on the side, the back panel, and the display (Force Touch technology). There is also a powerful cooling system consisting of two fans so that the frame rate does not drop during long battles. Moreover, the device can be connected to an external display and a keyboard and gamepad.
Legion 2 Pro was equipped with two batteries with a total capacity of 5500 mAh. The smartphone supports 90W wired charging (the adapter must be purchased separately). You can charge the device through one or two USB-C ports at once. In the second case, you can fully replenish the charge in half an hour.
Among other things, I note a fingerprint scanner integrated into the display, stereo speakers and four microphones with a noise reduction system. Powered by a smartphone running Android 11 and proprietary shell ZUI 12.5.
Lenovo Legion 2 Pro is priced at € 799 for the 12/256 GB version. The 16/256 GB version will cost € 999, and the top-end 18/512 GB version will cost € 1099. The novelty is available in two colours: white and black. Among the device’s competitors, it is worth noting the recently presented ASUS ROG Phone 5, Nubia Red Magic 6 Pro and Xiaomi Black Shark 4.
