Selfie camera on the side in the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel
Yes, what you have read is what it is. This Lenovo Legion Phone Duel has a front camera that comes out of one side of the terminal, it is something that we have not seen before and that means having to horizontally place the device when we go to take a selfie. It is a differential element to say the least and that will attract the attention of consumers, but it is just one more element of the aggressive design typical of gaming phones.
On the front of the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel we will find a good size screen, 6.65 inches. The technology of this panel is AMOLED and is complemented by a 144Hz refresh rate., so the games to the games (those that take advantage of this refresh rate) will be fluid and there will be some advantage over other players, since the reaction time is increased by being able to see the opponent earlier.
If we turn the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel the first thing we see is the double texture of its back cover. The upper and lower areas have a finish that simulates carbon fiber, while in the center the finish is shiny and semi-translucent to allow the light from the RGB lighting available in this device to pass through. This design is so striking that the dual rear camera takes a backseat, but the only good thing about it is that it doesn’t protrude too far from the case.
Performance to the last
Under the hood of the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel is a component mix worthy of a high-end 2020. The processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ and is accompanied by 12GB or 16GB of RAM, the storage starts at 256GB and can go up to 512GB, in both cases the memory technology is UFS 3.1. The graphic section is put by the Adreno 660, with all this string of data we can only expect capable performance in all situations.
The battery that powers this terminal has a capacity of 5,000 mAh and is compatible with 90W fast charge called Turbo Power. According to Lenovo, the terminal will go from 0% to 50% in just 10 minutes and 100% charging would take half an hour. The version of Android with which this device lands is Android 10 although it does so under Legion OS. As for connectivity, it is well served because it has everything expected: NFC, USB C, 5G, GPS, WiFi 6 …
Price and availability
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel has no date of arrival in Spanish territory, for the moment stays in Asian lands. Of course, it has been commented that it would later reach the Latin American market so it is unlikely that Spain will tread, but if we do, we will inform you of both the price and availability.
