If you’re on the lookout for a gaming smartphone, Lenovo has entered the realm with its first mobile flagship. Last October 17, Lenovo announced its anticipated gaming flagship smartphone, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel, which is said to redefy the mobile gaming experience with its unique hardware and software features or namely, its Dual Technology Architecture. That being said, since Lenovo is better known for their gaming laptops, PCs, and accessories, how does it stand out from the competition? Let’s find out!
As the mobile esports arena becomes more competitive in the Philippines (see the ongoing MPL-PH coverage), it’s a given that esports athletes need incredibly fast phones with great battery life. However, the Legion Phone Duel gives that and more with customized controls, high quality graphics, and live streaming capabilities. Here are the specs:
Sounds fancy, but what does Dual Technology Architecture mean exactly? It’s a major feature of the Legion Phone Duel that features pretty much dual everything, from dual batteries and dual cooling systems to dual power circuitry. You can fire shots continuously in PUBG without hassle – up to 10 firing shots per second! – by long-pressing the triggers. Personally, I find the fact that you can have a full charge within 30 minutes—a game-changer—since HD games like CoD tend to overheat and drain my phone.
It’s especially annoying to play games in portrait mode, but the Legion Phone Duel has got that problem covered. The phone’s interface is optimized for landscape mode! Not to mention, within the minimalist “Legion Realm” interface, gamers can tweak hardware performance settings, scroll through your downloaded games, and select the enabled network that gives you the best connectivity in that moment – WLAN, 5G, or Wi-Fi 6. No interruptions so players can concentrate and score that big win.
This phone really stands out with its streaming features. You can record, review, and boast about your gaming performance easily via a preview screen. Additionally, you can select and merge recorded clips together like a pro editor. If you forget to hit record, the phone can automatically capture your winning moments and you can reverse-record it to savor the moment.
For maximum aesthetics, the RGB lighting (the “Y” logo at the rear) can be changed to different settings, so you’re notified about messages and charging status at all times.
A bit reminiscent of my favorite console, if you want the large screen gaming experience, players can opt to connect the Legion Phone Duel to an external monitor, keyboard and mouse with a USB-C dock.
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel in Vengeance Red (12GB / 256GB) and Blazing Blue (16GB / 512GB) will be available at authorized Lenovo resellers in the Philippines starting November 1, 2020. For the official price, keep posted on GG Network this October 24, 2020, at the Legion launch in this year’s Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS). For more information, ‘like’ Lenovo Legion’s official Facebook page on their official website.
A ‘gamers-first’ mindset is baked into Lenovo Legion’s DNA. We made sure our maiden gaming smartphone offering is of flagship quality, with topnotch internals and innovative features, to give our customers the best bang for their buck,” said Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines President and General Manager.
We’re enthusiastic that the price won’t break the bank while players can finally get their first gaming smartphone. Stay tuned!
