As a follow up to last year’s Legion Phone Duel (aka Legion Phone Pro in China), Lenovo is back with another souped-up gaming phone with the Legion Phone Duel 2. As the name implies, the Legion Phone Duel 2 wants to do things in pairs–dual cooling fans, dual-battery setup, dual rear cameras, dual stereo speakers, and dual USB-C charging.
Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 Specs:
- Snapdragon 888 processor
- 12GB/16GB LPDDR5 RAM
- 256GB/512GB UFS 3.1 storage
- 6.92-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display, 144hz refresh rate 720hz touch sampling rate, 10-bit color
- 64-megapixel f/1.9 main camera with PDAF, 16-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera
- 44-megapixel f/2.0 ISOCELL GH1+ pop-up selfie camera
- 4G, 5G
- WiFi 6e, Bluetooth 5.2, in-display fingerprint scanner
- Stereo speakers, dual cooling fans, capacitive shoulder buttons
- 5500mAh 2-cell battery
- 90w fast charging
- Android 11
Sticking to the same side-mounted pop-up front camera, the Legion Phone Duel 2 upgrades the selfie snapper into a 44-megapixel ISOCELL GH1+ that can shoot 4K video at up to 60FPS. Compared to its predecessor, the Legion 2 Pro gets a significantly bigger display that is close to 7 inches. Like its predecessor, you are getting a gorgeous AMOLED panel with Full HD+ resolution, 720hz touch response rate, and a 144hz refresh rate to keep you ahead of the game.
Just like any proper gaming phone, the Legion Phone duel 2 rocks the best possible internals out there: Snapdragon 888, up to 16GB RAM (up to 18GB for the China version), and up to 512GB internal storage. The Legion Phone Duel 2 one-ups both the ROG Phone 5 and Red Magic 6 by having a dual-fan cooling system within the phone itself–on top of a liquid cooling chamber. You also get a total of four shoulder buttons–two on the back of the phone and two as touch points on the display–for mapping your game controls.
For the cameras, the Legion Phone Duel 2 is utilizing OmniVision’s OV64A sensor, letting it shoot 8K videos at 24FPS and 4K videos at up to 120FPS. To keep the lights on, Lenovo is still sticking to a two-cell layout, but increased overall capacity at 5500mAh while retaining its 90w wired charging speeds via two USB-C ports.
