Lenovo has officially announced its new gaming smartphone called Legion Phone Duel 2. Simultaneously, the new product turned out to be very unusual and, one might say, suffering from gigantomastia.
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 smartphone received a 6.92-inch OLED display with 2460 × 1080 pixels. The panel used has a 144Hz refresh rate and 800 nits brightness (1300 nits peak brightness). The sensor polling rate is 720 Hz. The front camera with a resolution of 44 megapixels is located in a pull-out module. So there are no cutouts or holes in the display. The front camera is positioned in such a way that it is convenient to use it during streaming. It supports the background removal function.
The flagship system-on-chip Snapdragon 888 acts as a hardware platform. The smartphone can be equipped with LPDDR5 RAM from 12 GB to 18 GB and built-in storage based on UFS3.1 memory with 256 GB or 512 GB capacity.
The rear panel of the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 houses a bulge that houses the cameras and cooling system. Previous leaks have been confirmed – the device is indeed equipped with an active cooling system. But it contains not one fan, as previously reported, but two at once. And each has its own air vent. In this case, one fan sucks air into the inside of the case, and the second push the heated air out. At maximum speed, the fans emit a noise of 27 dB. Lenovo claims that the split design protects the user’s hands from heat. A lug on the back also houses a dual camera. It includes a 64-megapixel main module and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module.
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 smartphone received two batteries at once. True, their total capacity does not look so impressive against the background of other device characteristics – 5500 mAh. 90W fast charging is supported, but the corresponding charger must be purchased separately. Two USB-C ports are available for recharging the batteries at once. They can be used simultaneously. Using two ports simultaneously, you can fully charge the two built-in batteries in just 30 minutes. The novelty has dimensions 176×78.5×9.9 mm and a weight of 259 g. The device is offered in the colours Titanium White and Ultimate Black. The operating system is the Lenovo ZUI 12.5 shell based on Android 11.
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 gaming smartphone will go on sale in China this month and in Europe on May 1. The device will be priced at € 799 for the basic version with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. The version with 16/512 GB of memory, complete with a docking station, is estimated at € 999.
