As a refresher, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel has a 6.65-inch FHD+ AMOLED display complete with a 144Hz refresh rate and a touch sampling rate of 240Hz to reduce input lag. There is no notch in sight because the array of sensors and selfie camera has been moved to a side-mounted pop-up front-facing camera module on the left of the phone. The obvious reason why it’s on the side is because the phone is meant for use in landscape mode rather than horizontal. This will also help streamers to easily add face-cam footage without the use of any external devices.
Apart from that, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel also has dual stereo front-facing speakers as well as two ultrasonic air trigger buttons on the side. This lets the gamer add additional command input for games like Call of Duty: Mobile, and PUBG Mobile. Running on Legion based on Android 10, the Legion Phone Duel also has an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel also has two USB Type-C ports for charging – one on the bottom, and one the right side of the phone. This expands the gamers’ choices for charging when it comes to gameplay. Not only that, the phone is also equipped with Wi-Fi 6 and 5G connectivity ready to tackle ever-evolving speeds.
Paired with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel also has a split-cell battery. These two batteries amount to a total of 5,000mAh that are positioned on the top and bottom of the device. Equipped with 90W Turbo Power Charging technology, Lenovo mentioned that the Phone Duel will only come with a 65W fast charger in the box, which can fully charge the phone in just 34 minutes. But the weird thing is, to achieve this feat, you’d need to charge the phone using both USB Type-C ports simultaneously.
In the camera department, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel has a dual-camera system which has a 64MP main sensor, as well as a 16MP ultra-wide angle sensor. On the pop-up camera, you’ll get a 20MP front-facing sensor for selfies and streaming.
