Lenovo Legion Duel Specifications, Price, Pros and Cons – For over two months, the rumors of Lenovo Legion Duel are circulating on the internet. It looks like Lenovo is to follow the same strategy that Asus had implement. First, they create a legion gaming laptop series, and now they prepare to launch a gaming smartphone with the same name.

Compare to other gaming-centric smartphones, which count the ZTE nubia Red Magic, Xiaomi Black Shark 3, and Asus RoG II. It has unique traits of its own. The splendid news is that the Lenovo Legion is about to launch in July. The expected starting price of the phone is around $800 (60,000 INR). The maker has revealed the phone’s almost all specs, and the device will be available soon and this phone can be pre-order in China from now on.

Lenovo Legion Duel Specifications Overview

Highlights

  1. It features an AMOLED panel display with an over 144 Hz refresh rate with HDR 10+ support.
  2. Lenovo Legion Duel comes with a power-packed Snapdragon 865 chipset.
  3. A 5000 mAh battery with ultra-fast charging support of 90W.
  4. It apparently has a better cooling system inside its board.
  5. As the Lenovo Legion is a gaming smartphone, no one expects that it would have a 64MP primary lens camera.

Design and Display

The Lenovo Legion appears with a typical gaming smartphone design with a dual camera at the center of the rear panel with a legion three ways layout. It may also have a glowing effect on its name. The device’s design is quite unusual because it has a pop-up selfie camera on the side frame, which is unique at the same time. There is a Dual speaker present at the top and the bottom screen and also has a 3.55 mm jack slot.

It has a 6.65 inches AMOLED screen of FULL HD+ 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution with over 391 pixels per inch density display intact as the front panel. For the gaming aspect, they provide the set of 144 Hz refresh rate for better smoothness, which is paired with HDR 10+ support. This configuration of the screen is the fittest in terms of a gaming phone.

Memory and Internal

In the internal section, Lenovo provides a mid-frame architecture for cooling and better grip, alongside the best cooling system with Dual X-axis linear motor for vibration effect. Lenovo debuts its first gaming smartphone with 7nm Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 plus chipset on the system, paired with Adreno 650 graphic processor and 5G connectivity. It gives a blazing fast speed performance, and the blend 144 Hz refresh rate exceeds the gameplay experience to another level.

Like most of this range of smartphones, it won’t have any Micro-SD option. On the other hand, it gets an 8GB RAM connected to 128GB internal storage. The higher variant has 12/16 GB RAM that couple up with the 256/512 GB storage. The internal storage is based on the latest UFS 3.0 memory support, which adequately transfers data at top speed and mange storage.

We assume that its teaser video is pointing to some key features such as how fast and powerful experience you will feel during the gameplay and several other things. Amazing touch sensation enhance by hardware and a couple of rapid performant software seen on the phone. The Lenovo Legion Duel runs on Android 10 with the layering skin of Legion OS. It could have similar features and functionality as the Asus ROG User interface for gaming booster mode and many other things.

Camera Setup

When the first ROG phone was release, that time, its company didn’t put any effort into its camera specification. But Lenovo is aware of what are the market’s needs. They provide a decent dual camera setup of 64 MP primary shooter and 16 MP ultra-wide lens, which balances the camera.

The most unexpected thing about the Lenovo Legion is the placement of the camera. The 16 MP pop-up selfie camera at the side panel. Likewise, It’s fresh and astonishing at the same moment. To settle it straightforward, it comes with a stable camera configuration. Plus, it also has all the trendy aspects of the camera needed in a flagship standard smartphone.

Battery and Others

A 90 W of ultra-fast charging support comes to charge 5000 mAh battery and it takes almost half an hour to fully charge the battery. We are not shaken or startled with its robust charging speed because Vivo, Oppo, and many more companies are working to create 100+ or even 125 W chargers. However, this technology will take around one to two years to release in the market. For now, the 90 W can count as the king of the charging speed in the premium segment.

Back to the point, the phone’s other features are that of its dual loudspeaker, which produces a rocking sound effect and enhances the gaming experience. The AMOLED panel enabled the under-display fingerprint scanner, and face-unlock is present for security as well.
