Lenovo has announced the availability of the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel in Malaysia, three years after the launch of the company’s gaming sub-brand. The phone features a unique Dual Technology Architecture to redefine the mobile gaming experience by unleashing the full potential of hardware and software.
Lenovo has listened to gamers worldwide to build the ideal gaming powerhouse to meet demands of great thermal management, long battery life, customized controls and livestreaming capabilities while also being equipped for 5G and cloud gaming.
Purchasing the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel from 26 October to 30 November will enjoy a free gift worth up to RM329, which includes the Legion H500 Pro 7.1 Headphone, while stocks last, through Lenovo Malaysia’s official website or selected participating partners.
Lenovo is amongst the first to feature the next-level, flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus Mobile Platform for revved-up performances across the board for incredibly-fast Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming, plus 5G support in selected markets. For enhanced power efficiency, you get advanced 5th gen memory chips with up to 16GB LPDDR5 high capacity RAM and ample storage up to 512GB UFS 3.1. The gaming-grade 6.59” display has a 144Hz refresh rate and 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution. The display’s interactivity is further enhanced by its 240Hz touch sampling rate for instant response to your finger movements.
DOUBLE THE FUN
The Dual Technology Architecture approach begins from the power circuitry; bearing 2500mAh dual batteries for a total of 5000mAh, they are located on the sides of the phones where hands will rest, with the warm logic board in the center. The dual design enables a more comfortable hold for long hours of game play. With Dual-Liquid Heat Pipes, Graphite sheets, and copper foils, the thermals are also precisely managed for a cool experience.
Dual Type-C Charging provides convenient charging ports on both the bottom and side of the phone, giving you the choice to use one or both charging cords with the bundled 65W charger. With both cords plugged in, the phone will turbo charge from 0% to 100% in 34 minutes (or 0% to 60% in 15 minutes).
Dual Shoulder Controls are ultrasonic trigger buttons that come with Dual Haptics engines that provide life-like feedback for deeper immersion in games, feeling like physical buttons in actual use. You can further tune the haptics feedback level and pressure threshold to your liking. You want to activate a continuous burst of fire (up to 10 firing shots per second)? You can, by long pressing the triggers. If you need to change your in-game view whenever you rotate your phone on its horizontal axis, a gyroscope sensor is on hand to do so.
Hear the cues you need with dual front-facing speakers, made possible by Dirac Audio technology with large 1.4cc acoustics chambers for far-reaching sound quality—engineered for you to crank up the volume and generate a 3D-like sound field.
Dual Livestreaming is easy thanks to the Legion Phone Duel’s 20MP pop-up front camera, taking a mere 0.5 seconds to activate or retract. Activate it to broadcast your voice and facial reactions as you play and have your image overlay on-screen! The feature is compatible with popular streaming apps. The background is also easily removable, while you can use AI to auto-enhance your image via the selfie editor with retouching filters and correction options. Livestreamers can record them just fine anywhere thanks to the four noise-cancelling microphones too!
As for the rear, there is a pair of 64MP and ultrawide 16MP camera for capturing stunning images, as well as record up to 4K resolution at 30FPS.
PLAY IT YOUR WAY
The Legion Phone Duel has a specially customized interface that maximizes the landscape orientation of the phone so you hardly need to use the portrait mode and get distracted from your gameplay. Legion Realm is the phone’s central dashboard where 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.
Review all your gaming highlights with a preview screen to then select and merge recorded clips together before sharing. You can even slide your finger over the right ultrasonic trigger to the left for a reverse-record if you missed that key moment! When you need it, the RGB lighting can be tweaked to be informed of notifications via the “Y” Legion logo. If you just want a larger screen gaming experience, just connect the phone to an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse with a USB-C dock.
