Announcement. Lenovo Legion Duel 2 (Legion 2 Pro) - gaming, expensive, already broke ...

A new gaming smartphone announced.In China, it is called 拯救 者 电 竞 手机 2 Pro. If you feed this sequence of hieroglyphs to automatic translators, they will give out “Savior Gaming Phone 2 Pro”. However, the established name for the device is Lenovo Legion 2 Pro. It is expected to be sold outside of China under the Lenovo Legion Duel 2 name.

No surprises.Powerful, huge, with super screen and super battery. And, of course, the tsar-camera does not pretend to be. It was necessary, in fact, to save on something, so they saved on the photo. And so it turned out not cheap. From ¥ 3,699 (₽43500, $ 565) for the younger version 8 + 128 GB to ¥ 5999 (₽70,600, $ 916) for the older version 18 + 512 GB. And I, of course, understand that there is never too much memory. But what can be used to load 18 GB of RAM on a smartphone, I cannot understand.

The chipset is, of course, the fastest ofexisting, i.e. Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 - about 800 thousand points in AnTuTu9. An active cooling system is provided. And even with two (!) Fans. One for blowing in, the other for blowing out. Interesting, by the way, who needs to be cooled more there? Chip or batteries?

The battery is, as expected, crazy.More precisely, there are two small ones, 2750 mAh each, which in total gives 5500 mAh. Interesting with charging. There are two charging ports. And, the fastest, the smartphone can be fully charged in half an hour - using a special 90W charger. But you have to buy it separately. Included in the package will be either 45W or 65W charging.

The screen is top-end. Huge - 6.92 ″ diagonal.And without any cutouts or holes - there is a front camera, but it is mechanical, retractable. The refresh rate of the screen is 144 Hz, the polling rate of the sensor is as much as 720 Hz. The screen is AMOLED, so the fingerprint scanner is, of course, built into it.

The front camera (44 MP, AF) is not positioned asusually, not on the short edge of the smartphone, but in the middle of the long one. Those. is designed not for banal selfies, but for taking pictures of your face during games, when the smartphone is placed horizontally.

There are two cameras behind. The main module with a resolution of 64 MP and a wide-angle 16 MP.

There is NFC, 5G is. No support for memory cards, standard audio output, wireless charging.

Of the interesting things, it is also worth noting additional "ultrasonic" control buttons, stereo speakers, support for HDR10 +. Although, is this HDR really necessary for a gaming smartphone? ..

Lenovo Legion Duel 2 has already fallen into the hands of English-speaking reviewers, as well as the tenacious paws of JerryRigEverything, which immediately broke it with success (and with particular cynicism). Rollers under the cut, enjoy!
