Legion Duel 2 a Gaming BEAST!
So the Legion Duel 2 is a smartphone built from the ground up for gaming and it offers a few things which you’re not going to find on any of the devices.
Therefore, inside the box as well as the device, you do get two USB type C cables and a 65-watt charger with two USB C ports.
You also get a USB type C to the 3.5-millimeter converter. Some people work on a clear case.
Here it is. You’ll notice right away that this has been built for landscape mode to make the most out of your gaming.
Legion Duel 2 has 16 point 8 million colors and with the Legion assistant app, the colors can be set to react in real-time.
Now let’s take a look at the display. we do have an in-display fingerprint scanner and we have a 6.92 inch AMOLED display with a 144-hertz refresh rate it supports HDR 10 Plus has 1300 nits of peak brightness.
However, what’s unique about the Legion Duel 2 is a world-leading 720-hertz touch sampling rate.
Now, this not only makes things very smooth, but it also makes things very responsive. And if you are playing a game that can support the touch sampling rate, you’ll notice the difference.
Legion Duel 2 Ram & Storage
Now of course we’ve got the latest and greatest in terms of the specs.
So this is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, 5g chipset, we’ve got 12/16 or up to 18 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, we’ve got 256 or 512 GB of view UFS 3.1 storage.
So obviously, it is going to be right up there in terms of performance, but the Legion Duel 2 has a few features that will help it maintain that peak performance when you’re gaming for long periods.
We’ve got the advanced technology architecture 2.0 design in the Legion Duel 2, and this optimizes its heat management through an improved internal layout, massive vapor chamber, and integrated cooling fans to deliver peak performance at all times.
We’ve also got the world’s first active twin Turbo fan cooling system, the dual fans work together as a push-pull system to force the cool airflow through the independent copper wind tunnel.
This tunnel is connected to the large vapor chamber by two copper pillars, increasing thermal transfer performance.
Now you may have seen other gaming devices which have a separate attachment for a fan.
But the dual two has this whole built-in in a compact form factor. Now for the controls, we have got to Okta trigger console controller-like experience.
So we’ve got four ultrasonic shoulder keys, there’s two rear touchpoints, as well as Legion Duel 2 in-display four touchpoints.
So you can customize all of these controls to give you that gaming edge.
Legion Duel 2 Software
Now for the software we’ve got Android 11 with very light skin so everything is very close to stock Android, however, we’ve got some customizations that help you get the most of the deal to there’s the Legion assistant app which gives you real-time performance metrics, one-click ultimate performance mode called rampage which will give you the maximum performance based on the hardware as well as fan speed control.
We’ve then got the Legion ROM network which will help you share experiences, videos, screenshots with other Legion Duel 2 gaming fans, and also give you access to the Lenovo support system.
Now, of course, with the visuals, you’re going to want great audio so we do have dual stereo front-firing speakers with large chambers and these are equivalent to do 1.6 cc speakers and there’s also low latency Bluetooth Low Energy audio if you are going to be using some wireless headphones.
Legion Duel 2 Battery
Now let’s move over on to the battery or should I say batteries we have a total of 5500 milliamp hours and this is split into dual batteries.
Firstly for better weight distribution when you’re gaming, but also for faster charging.
Therefore, you saw earlier that we do have two USB C ports on the 65-watt charger and we’ve also got two USB type C cables.
Now the Legion Duel 2 has two USB type C ports, one is here at the bottom and one is on the side we have a few advantages because of this layout.
The side USB type C port allows you to have the device plugged in when you’re gaming so it’s not going to interrupt your gaming or come in the way but also with the 65 watts included charger, you can plug in both USB C cables into the device giving you do Turbo Charging, this will charge the device from zero to 50%.
In just 12 minutes, there is also a 90-watt charger available and with that, you can get from zero to 100% in 30 minutes. And if we compare this to a 40 500 million power single battery on a device with 120-watt charging, this will still be faster because it’s filling up both of those cells at the same time.
So you will be able to get around 4500 milliamps in just 17 minutes.
Now for safety, we do have a battery protection system giving you three layers of protection.
This bypass charging allows the phone to switch to the power provided by the cable exclusively instead of the battery avoiding the heat generated through charging or draining that could affect the performance of the smartphone during gaming sessions.
Slow charging recognizes when fast charging is not required lowering the charging performance to prolong battery quality and lower internal temperatures. Overcharging protection monitors the battery and charging performance to ensure that once the battery is full on the phone remains plugged in the charging stops and the system switches to bypass charging.
Legion Duel 2 Camera
Now let us talk about the cameras. Therefore, we have a dual rear-facing camera setup.
I like that Lenovo has not just put some cameras in here for the hell of it. What are these useful there is a 64-megapixel primary camera.
In addition, this can shoot HDR 10 as well as raw images and 8k up to 24 frames a second.
Legion Duel 2 have a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera with a 123-degree angle a view and then we’ve got a 44-megapixel live-streaming pop-up selfie camera.
Now, this is very interesting.
Therefore, you will see it’s just popped up and again it is placed in landscape mode so it’s not going to be off to the side or something and it’s going to give you the best viewing angle when you are gaming and live streaming at the same time.
In addition, an additional bonus of a public camera is that when you are not using it, it is completely hidden so you do not have to have any privacy concerns now with the AI capabilities of the Snapdragon 888 the deal to rather perform real-time back on a replacement as well.
Therefore, that is the Legion Duel 2 one of the most powerful gaming smartphones out there. If you want to see the latest pricing and availability and want to find out more there will be a link down below in the description.
