July is already has become one of the best months in terms of smartphone launches. OnePlus launched its new mid-range king OnePlus Nord on 21st, then now Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone Launched with SD865+ & 144Hz Display and other features that a gaming smartphone should have. After that ROG Phone 3 is also scheduled for its launch.
There isn’t a lot of competition in the gaming segment right now, the only competition for Legion Gaming Phone is Asus’ ROG Phone. ROG Phone 2 was a great success and Asus will sure want to keep that crown of victory with ROG Phone 3 too.
Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone Launched
Like every gaming phone, the design of the Legion Gaming Phone is exclusive. This is often the simplest design we’ve seen so far for a gaming phone. There are lines & LEDs all around, and therefore the back features a symmetrical design that has carbon fiber-like finish on the highest & bottom and an enormous Legion logo within the center, which, obviously, lights up. the twin cameras on the rear are oddly placed within the near center rather than on the highest.
Also, there’s a side-facing pop-up selfie camera & while this placement might sound weird initially , if you check out it from a gamer’s perspective, then you’ll know that it’s actually a really smart design choice. for somebody who does facecam while gaming, this placement for the selfie camera is extremely helpful.
There are triggers on the edges, which are pressure sensitive & since it’s a gaming phone, there’s a complicated cooling system that has two heat pipes. For better haptic feedback, there’s a dual X-axis linear vibration motor. Lenovo on Duel comes with two USB Type-C ports, one on rock bottom & the opposite on the side.
