Lenovo Announces Gaming-Focused Legion Phone Duel 2 With Snapdragon 888, Two Cooling Fans

Lenovo has officially announced the Legion Phone Duel 2, its second smartphone in the mobile gaming space.

According to a new press release from Lenovo, the Legion Phone Duel 2 centers around a new cooling system that mates a vapor chamber with dual cooling fans. The Snapdragon 888 inside should stay cool and maintain peak performance even during lengthy gaming sessions, in other words.

Additionally, the Lenovo Legion Phone Dual 2 has a 5,500mAh battery and features a 6.92-inch 144Hz AMOLED display that supports HDR10+. The display is 1080p but appears to deliver excellent visuals overall. The display also has a 720HZ touch sampling rate, which should help show off quick reflexes within games. On each side of the screen is a front-firing speaker that supports Dolby Atmos.

Other core specs include 12GB, 16GB, or even 18GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 256GB and 512GB UFS 3.1 storage options. And for shooting photos, there is a 44-megapixel pop-up camera on the front with an ultra-wide 84-degree autofocus lens, and dual sensors on the back, consisting of a 64-megapixel OmniVision lens (f/1.9) and 16-megapixel wide-angle lens (f/2.2, 123-degree FoV).

“Mobile games are becoming increasingly sophisticated, more immersive and require complex control skills,” said Jerry Tsao, vice president of the Mobile Gaming Group at Lenovo. “When we entered the market last year, the first thing we did was to re-invent the system architecture to focus on horizontal gaming usage which we called ATA 1.0. This past year we have continued to seek breakthroughs, and today, we’re proud to introduce our next-level ATA 2.0 with the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2—bringing together the best of gamer-focused design and immersive experiences.”
