Lenovo announces Legion Phone Duel with a Snapdragon 865+, 144Hz screen, 16GB RAM, and more

Way back in February, Lenovo teased a gaming phone under its Legion brand, and since then, there's been no shortage of rumors and leaks around the device. But now, it's official as the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel, also known as the Legion Phone Pro in China.

First of all, the Legion Phone Duel packs some serious, high-end specs; in fact, it's as good as it gets. The chipset used is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+, which is brand new and built for gaming. On top of that, you can have it configured with up to 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage. It's also got a 6.59-inch 19:5.9 FHD OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate, for smooth motions and better response time.

But it's not just about the internals, as Lenovo has packed this device full of gaming features. It worked hard on thermals, using liquid cooling and copper tubes. The batteries are moved to the sides where your hands will rest, so you won't be pressing up against the hot logic board. Those batteries are dual 2,500mAh batteries, and they support 90W Turbo Power charging, allowing you to go from 0-50% in 10 minutes, and giving you a full charge in 30 minutes.

The Legion Phone Duel is designed with landscape orientation in mind, with a pop-up 20MP front camera the comes out of the side. Not only can this be used for selfies, but it can be used for streaming your games as well.

All of this comes in a package that weighs 239g and is 9.9mm thick at its thickest point. In the rear camera department, that comes in at 64MP with an f/1.72 aperture, and there's also a 16MP ultra-wide sensor.

The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel (or Lenovo Legion Phone Pro in China) is going to arrive this month in China, select Asia Pacific and EMEA markets, and Latin America. Pricing will vary by market, and it's not coming to the United States.
