Lenovo launches Legion Phone Duel with Side Popup camera and Snapdragon 865+

Lenovo is also making its entry in the gaming smartphone segment after ASUS, Red Magic and Nubia. Lenovo Legion Phone Duel is a smartphone featuring modern and latest Snapdragon 865 plus processor. The smartphone will feature a new take on battery placement which will be splitted into the top and bottom of the phone. Also a new quirky selfie popup camera which will be positioned on the right side of the phone.
The phone comes with a massive 6.59 inch for FHD+ AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Screen refresh rate is set upto 144Hz with a 240Hz touch sampling rate which can easily provide fluid response while playing graphic intensive games. The dual stereo speakers are located on the front side for best audio experience.

The back side of the device has a multicolor LED and Lenovo Legion ‘Y’ logo. The dual camera setup on the back consists of a primary 64MP camera and 16MP wide-angle with 120 degrees FOV. It can record 4K @30 fps. There is no 8K video recording feature.

The front popup camera is mounted on the right side of the phone which is a 20MP camera. This has allowed the company for a full bezel less display design.
For authentication, there will be an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The 5000 mAh battery is split into two parts, and logic boards sit between these parts so while playing games for longer sessions, gamers don’t rest their hand on the hotter chip area. It will be charged using a snappy 90W charger. Since there are two batteries included, there will be two different USB-C ports for simultaneous charging. The batteries can go from 0% to 50% in just 10 minutes and complete a full charge of the massive battery within 30 minutes.
