Lenovo Introduces Legion Phone Duel
Three years after the launch of its gaming sub-brand, Lenovo introduced the Legion Phone Duel, smartphone with sub-6 5G. It’s created specifically for on-the-go gamers passionate about high performance and who prefer the comfort and convenience of playing entirely in horizontal mode.
With six specially customized layout themes to choose from, each with distinctive design details, colors, and icons that resonate with gamers, users can stay in gaming-centric landscape mode or switch to portrait mode. Plus, home mode allows them to cast to or play on a connected external monitor/TV while using either a wireless keyboard and mouse, or your preferred wired accessories via a dock.
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel plays like a mobile gaming console with virtual tools, high gaming capabilities, and an optimized battery lasting up to a full day of average phone usage. Lenovo is amongst the first to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus 5G Mobile Platform that delivers revved-up performance across the board for fast Snapdragon Elite Gaming, plus global 5G support. For enhanced power efficiency, there are advanced 5th gen memory chips, up to 16GB LPDDR5 high capacity RAM or the optional 12GB configuration, and ample storage up to 512GB UFS 3.1.
It has a 6.65-inch Full HD (2340 x 1080) AMOLED glass touchscreen display with 144Hz refresh rate. For the enhanced gaming experience, the phone has 240Hz touch sampling rate. The device also comes with dual liquid-cooling and copper tubes, plus moving the dual 2500mAh batteries off to the sides. Full 90W Turbo Power Charging takes both charging cords (from center and side ports) to power up both batteries. Lenovo claims it can charge from zero to up to 50 percent power in only 10 minutes, and a full charge takes 30 minutes.
The phone weighs 239 grams (8.43 ounces) and is 9.9 mm (0.38 in) at its thickest point. It has a pop-up 20MP front camera that stays tucked inside bezel when not live streaming, and a high resolution 64MP rear camera.
