Sheer Power and Speed
The gaming phone feature the next-level flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus Mobile Platform that delivers revved-up performance. For enhanced power efficiency, you get advanced 5th gen memory chips with up to 16GB LPDDR5 high capacity RAM and ample storage up to 512GB UFS 3.1.5.
The gaming-grade 6.65-inch display has a 144Hz refresh rate and 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution. The display’s interactivity is further enhanced by its 240Hz touch sampling rate for instant response to your finger movements.
Dual Power Architecture
The Dual Technology Architecture approach shaped the major elements of the Legion Phone Duel, starting with its power circuitry.
Dual Batteries – 2500 mAh each for a total of 5000 mAh battery capacity are located on the sides of the phone where gamers’ hands would rest while the warm logic board is placed in the center. By keeping the warmest area away from the hands, this dual design makes the handset comfortable for long hours of game play. Even with marathon sessions, the phone’s Dual-Liquid Heat Pipes, Graphite sheets, and copper foils ensure that the thermals are precisely managed for a cool experience.
Dual Type-C Charging – gives you convenient charging ports on the bottom and side of the phone. You can choose to use one or both Type-C charging cords from the bundled 65W charger. With both cords plugged in, the phone will turbo charge from 0% to 100% in 34 minutes (or 0% to 60% in 15 minutes).
Dual Shoulder Controls – are ultrasonic trigger buttons that come with Dual Haptics engines that provide life-like feedback for deeper immersion in games. They feel like physical buttons in actual use and the haptics feedback level and pressure threshold can be further tuned to your liking.
Dual Front-Facing Speakers – deliver room-filling audio for situational battle cues in-game, so you can react even faster to the footsteps behind you. This is made possible by Dirac Audio technology with large 1.4cc acoustics chambers for far-reaching sound quality. It is engineered for you to crank up the volume and generate a 3D-like sound field.
Dual Livestreaming – is now made easy with the Legion Phone Duel’s 20MP pop-up front camera. It takes just 0.5 seconds to be activated or retracted. To broadcast your voice and facial reactions as you play, simply activate the pop-up front camera to simultaneously overlay your image on-screen. This feature is compatible with popular streaming apps. You can easily remove your background and use AI to auto-enhance your image via the selfie editor featuring retouching filters and correction options. Four noise-cancelling microphones record audio from all around to allow live-streamers to easily record themselves at esports events.
Play Your Way, All Day
The Legion Phone Duel has a specially customized interface that maximizes the landscape orientation of the phone so you hardly need to use the portrait mode and get distracted from your gameplay.
Legion Realm is the phone’s central dashboard where gamers can tweak hardware performance settings, scroll through your downloaded games, and select the enabled network that gives you the best connectivity in that moment – WLAN, 5G, or Wi-Fi 6.
With the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel, as soon your gaming session ends, you can review all the gaming highlights via a preview screen. Then, you can select and merge recorded clips together before sharing with your team mates.
If you have just scored a massive win but forgot to hit “Record,” just use a finger to slide your right ultrasonic trigger key to the left. The phone will replay those moments captured automatically in the background so you can “reverse-record” that scene for posterity.
Finally, if you want the large screen gaming experience, just connect the phone to an external monitor, keyboard and mouse with a USB-C dock.
