Lenovo Legion Phone Duel, among the first phones to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ chipset, is here and just like the rumors suggested, the phone has a pop-up selfie camera on the side and a split battery.
„It’s created specifically for on-the-go gamers passionate about high performance and who prefer the comfort and convenience of playing entirely in horizontal mode.”, Lenovo said in a press release.
The 20-megapixel sensors with f/2.2 aperture and an 81.7-degree field of view, however, may not have the ideal location for taking a quick selfie, right in the middle of the phone’s longer side.
That doesn’t apply to the battery, though. Lenovo chose a 5.000 mAh battery with extremely fast 90W charging.
But why was it split in two? Precisely with location in mind, so that the handset is easier to hold and cool off.
„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 was how to keep everything cooler for the gamer”
Both cells sit on either side of the motherboard, now. Dual liquid-cooling and copper tubes also help avoid overheating.
The batteries are charged by using both charging cords (from center and side ports) which Lenovo says will get you from zero to up to 50 percent power in only 10 minutes, and a full charge only takes 30 minutes.
Lenovo Legion Duel is a 5G phone with a 6.6-inch FHD+ display, a 144Hz refresh rate, and up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 512GB UFS 3.1 storage.
