Although a a difficult start, mobile phone manufacturers have not given up on sports. Inspired by the advent of cloud games, such as Xbox Game Pass and Google Stadia, the likes of ASUS and China Nubia have released powerful tools for the game. Now, Lenovo is back in the arena with his following first game phone since last year. The new Legion Phone Duel 2 retains its original look when using the space, but doubles down the controls by adding eight keys to bring it closer to the audio feel.
Its “octa-triggers” include four ultrasonic shoulder keys, two rear and two display. This is combined with the 720Hz frequency range (twice the response and accuracy provided by ASUS ROG Phone 5 and Nubia Red Magic 6). Lenovo says the setup is designed to mimic the athlete’s natural grip when held around, allowing you to do more in battle as fast as you can.
Obviously, none of these improvements would be necessary if the new Legion did not have specs to support them. The Lenovo device is too soon for you to join Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 the club with its sports enthusiasts. It also maintains a smooth 144Hz frequency from the original Legion, which is similar to the ASUS ROG 5, but less than the latest 165Hz of Nubia. (The quirky pop-up selfie camera on the side is back, too, though it has been changed from 20MP to 44MP). While the 6.92-inch full HD AMOLED display is much larger than the ASUS ROG 5 and also supports HDR 10+.
Legion has a cool app run by twin turbo-fans who play for a while. Lenovo has also used a mid-range phone processor, so your fingers don’t feel as hot as they used to. The new cable also carries two integrated batteries and delivers 5,500mAh power – 10 percent more than previously – as well as 90W speed and two USB-C ports.
Prices for this new phone start from € 999 ($ 1,185) for the 16GB / 512GB model with a charging port, while the 12GB / 256GB option without additional accessories costs € 799 ($ 948). The phone will be available in China first in April and then make it to market markets in Asia Pacific and Europe next month. Lenovo says the presence in North America has not yet been determined.
