Lenovo on Thursday, Apr. 8, officially unveiled the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2, the second-generation 5G gaming phone that boasts the world's first dual cooling system in a smartphone.

Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2: Confirmed Specs, Price, and Release Date
According to The Verge's report on Thursday, Apr. 8, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 would come with the new Snapdragon 888 processor, can accommodate up to 18GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 512GB of UFS3.1 storage.
The Legion Phone Duel 2 will run on an Android 11-based Lenovo's ZUI 12.5, and will come in either "Titanium White" or "Ultimate Black."
As a follow-up to the Legion Phone Duel, the Legion Phone Duel 2 features the same twin USB-C ports and a pop-up 44-megapixel selfie camera designed specifically for live streaming or video chats.
The two USB-C ports can be used simultaneously, and Lenovo claims that doing so would fully charge the phone's two separate 2,750 mAh batteries in 30 minutes.
When fully charged, the Legion Phone Duel 2 should give gamers "up to 8 hours" of "intermittent gameplay."
Its 6.92-inch AMOLED (2460 x 1080) HDR 10+ screen features a 144Hz refresh rate and 720Hz touch sampling rate with 800 nits of brightness (1300 nits at maximum), making it perfect for outdoor play.
Additionally, the Legion Phone Duel 2 features the intuitive Octa-Trigger Controls, which Lenovo said would allow gamers to bind more weapons and tools that would give them the edge during the game.
Lenovo said that the Legion Phone Duel 2 will be available in China starting April 2021 and in selected Asia Pacific and European markets in May 2021.
In Europe, the price will start at €799 ($950) and could go as high as €999.00 ($1,189). Lenovo is yet to confirm when the Legion Phone Duel 2 will arrive in the U.S.
