Lenovo has introduced its long-awaited and first gaming smartphone - Lenovo Legion Phone Duel. It brings the best parameters available on the mobile market, led by the flagship processor of the American Qualcomm, Snapdragon 865 Plus
In addition, it will certainly attract the fastest charging in the world so far (which is applied in a smartphone) with the performance of unreal 90 W, 144 Hz AMOLED display, slide-out camera on the side and a very unconventional design on the back.
Really game design
At first glance, you can see what this smartphone is aimed at. On the back, the letter Y stands out, which is very well known from the range of other Legion products, and is highlighted LED backlight. Legion Phone Duel available in red and blue.
On the side there is a really unconventional front slide camera. It's there to capture users while playing games and thus for a better online streaming experience. We are about her they informed you a few days ago.
What was expected was also fulfilled. Lenovo Legion Duel comes with a new processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus. The improved former flagship processor has to handle even more, which means crossing the border 3 GHz to the core.
He also got a version with 16 GB RAM type L and huge 512 GB UFS 3.1 storage. In the AnTuTu test he got incredible 64 8871 points.

The surprise is extremely fast 90 W charging, which was almost never mentioned in speculation. The battery also has a large capacity, up to 5000 mAh, and thanks to 90 W Turbo Power you get charging 50 % only for less than one 10 minutes! 100% will be charged in 30 minutes.
However, the battery is divided into two halves and the smartphone also contains 2x USB-C ports. This is probably a marketing move, where the manufacturer adds up the charging power of both ports. The charging adapter contains two USB-C ports.
Unusually, there is only a pair of sensors located almost in the middle of the device. The main sensor has 64 MPx and seconds it wide angle 16 MPx sensor. Said front slide sensor has 20 MPx and is designed especially for streaming games.
