In this day and age, smartphones are no longer just for communication. Most people use it for photography and even for heavy gaming. Now, smartphones are looking to one day replace handheld consoles and maybe one day, and some games are now even boasting of graphics comparable to that of console titles.
Having been the buzz of the rumor mill several weeks prior, Lenovo finally unveiled their newest and most powerful gaming phone yet–the new Legion Phone Duel 2. Being a smartphone, this new device can naturally do what every smartphone can do–make calls, connect to the internet, be used in various apps like online casino Canada, among others. As a gaming phone, it can do more–maybe even way more than what you can expect it to.
On the outside, the new Legion Phone Duel 2 has a 6.92-inch AMOLED with 144Hz refresh rate and 720Hz touch sampling reaction speeds, making every touch and response as real time as possible. It has the latest Snapdragon 888 flagship processor and Lenovo’s AI-powered Pixelworks™ i6 Processor for better display and image processing.
“When winning matters, so should your device. The Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform is at the core of Lenovo’s new powerful smartphone with a 35% performance boost over the previous generation, plus a full suite of premium features,” said Alex Katouzian, senior vice president and general manager of Mobile, Compute and Infrastructure at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 is ideally designed to demonstrate the power of Qualcomm® Snapdragon Elite Gaming™ and gives gamers full control with one of the best gaming mobile devices available.”
The new Legion Phone Duel 2 has a 5500mAh battery with 90W ultra-fast charging. This means that you can play with it for long hours, and you can have it on full charge again for just less than 30 minutes. This means more gaming time, and more betting time for betting in online casinos in Canada, if you are into that. The device runs on Lenovo’s ZUI 12.5, which is based on Android 11.
When it comes to the camera, the Legion Phone Duel 2 has a 44MP pop-up landscape camera, that is perfectly positioned to be used in game streaming which is a first of its kind. At the back, the large bump sports the Legion logo, of course, lit by “breathing LED lights. The bump also houses a cooling system as well as an intake fan and a separate exhaust fan, giving the phone two ways to dissipate heat because of intensive gaming.
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 will initially be available in China starting April 2021 and will be available in major regions of the world starting May 2021.
“Mobile games are becoming increasingly sophisticated, more immersive, and require complex control skills,” said Jerry Tsao, vice president of the Mobile Gaming Group at Lenovo. “When we entered the market last year, the first thing we did was to re-invent the system architecture to focus on horizontal gaming usage which we called ATA 1.0. This past year we have continued to seek breakthroughs, and today, we’re proud to introduce our next-level ATA 2.0 with the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2—bringing together the best of gamer-focused design and immersive experiences.”
The Legion Phone Duel 2 will come in a 12GB RAM and 256GB storage variant for a price of €799.00, VAT-inclusive, and a variant of 16GB RAM with 256GB memory for €799.00, VAT-inclusive. The prices are for the European region, but prices through the rest of the world are expected to be around the same numbers, too.
