A Shared Mission
Gaming on a smartphone can be very resource intensive. With this in mind, theLenovo mobile gaming engineers and designers worked with the gaming community to prioritize their most valued product attributes. Turns out, many mobile gamers agree with PC players on the must-have features, such as, balanced performance, reliable stamina, and immersive features that get your heart racing. The trick with packing as much performance and power as you can into a smartphone that fits in the palm of your hand, is that those internals are going to heat up. The question became how to keep everything cooler for the gamer. Having already met the challenge of employing smarter thermals, incredible performance and more in the lineup of high-powered Lenovo Legion PCs earlier this year, the team was well positioned to deliver on mobile and PC gamers’ shared needs.
Charged up, Cool and Clear
By inventing advanced methods to better dissipate heat with dual liquid-cooling and copper tubes, plus moving the dual 2500mAh batteries off to the sides where gamers’ hands would rest (vs. forcing them to touch the warm logic board encasing the processor), Lenovo made the handset easier to hold while also extending gameplay without the fear of overheating.
A convenient center charging port means your cord won’t get in the way while catching a battery boost when gaming in landscape mode. Full 90W Turbo Power Charging takes both charging cords (from center and side ports) to power up both batteries for a combined total of 5000mAh. Go from zero to up to 50 percent power in only 10 minutes, and a full charge only takes 30 minutes[iv].
Enhance the mad gaming skills you already have with better audio for clearer situational battle cues in-game, so you can react even faster to the footsteps behind you. It’s made possible with dual front-facing stereo speakers with large 1.4cc acoustics chambers for amazing far-reaching sound quality.
Pair that with the virtual gamepad controls for touch and move simulations thanks to the Lenovo Legion Assistant. Near instant, dynamic and surrounding vibration from specialized engines in the phone simulate the feel of in-game hits. A built-in gyroscope sensor detects motion and complex orientation changes, like while watching a 360-degree video, or when your screen view autorotates whenever you rotate your phone on its horizontal axis. Although many Android smartphones have one embedded now, the telo Gamez-Lenovo Legion Phone Duel leverages its gyro to optimize the gaming experience for the user, for example, its virtual joystick feature works by moving your thumb around on the screen while playing a game, either to aim or to move players in a new direction.
Designed for blur-free animations via a 6.65-inch Full HD (2340 x 1080) AMOLED glass touchscreen display with 144Hz refresh rate for videos and gaming images so colorful and sharp, you’ll experience your favorite mobile games in a new light. The ultra-responsive teloGamez – Lenovo Legion Phone Duel’s 240Hz touch sampling rate will also make you wonder how you ever put up with time lags before.
Lights, Camera, Capture
Designed to offer gamers better grip, the phone feels solid at 239 grams (8.43 ounces) and is 9.9 mm (0.38 in) at its thickest point. Turn heads and show off your passion for gaming in a high-octane red or cool blue with programmable RGB lighting effects for Lenovo Legion’s recognizable “Y” icon and the back of its pop-up selfie camera. Lights can also be programmed to dynamically change depending on in-game effects for a more immersive experience.
Just one use of the live capture features will have mobile streamers ditching their cumbersome home recording studios for good. Four noise-cancelling microphones record audio from all around to allow streamers to easily record themselves at eSports events and other busy environments.
With the phone’s customized software dashboard called Lenovo Legion Realm, wherever gamers are, they can tweak hardware performance settings, scroll through the latest downloadable titles in Google Play™, and select the enabled network that gives you the best quality and/or least traffic in that moment, i.e. WLAN, 5G, or Wi-Fi 6[v], to help reduce video and in-game latency.
Capture general HD 1080p footage and record in 4K at up to 30 FPS[vi] (frames per second) for remarkable clarity with a high-powered 20MP front camerathat stays tucked inside bezel when not live streaming for a clean look, also features auto-retract drop protection. Plus, a high resolution 64MP rear camera for 64MP resolution photos, which also has a quad pixel sensor for shooting high-quality, 16MP resolution photos in dark and bright conditions.
