Dual Technology Architecture

Legion Phone Duel - Key Visuals (10)Legion Phone Duel utilizes 2,500mAh cells located on the sides, while the warm logic board is in the center. This placement keeps the warmest area away from where the user’s hands would usually land, making it more comfortable to use for long hours of gaming.

The device also employes Dual-Liquid Heat Pipes, Graphite Sheets, and Copper Foils all to ensure that thermals are well-managed.

Legion Phone Duel Unit (16)Dual Type-C Charging gives you two charging ports – one at the bottom, and one on the side of the phone.

Legion Phone Duel Unit (17)You can opt to use one or both ports using the bundled 65W charger. Both connected, the phone can turbocharge from 0% to full in 34 minutes. That also means 0% to 60% in 15 minutes).

Legion Phone Duel Unit (15)Legion Phone Duel uses Dual Shoulder Controls – ultrasonic trigger buttons that employ Dual Haptic Engines to deliver life-like feedback for deeper immersion in games.

Dual Front-Facing Speakers deliver immersive sound and room-filling audio for situational battle cues in-game, allowing you to react faster. This is made possible using Dirac Audio technology with large 1.4cc acoustics chambers.

Legion Phone Duel Unit (12)Dual Livestreaming is now made easy using the Legion Phone Duel’s 20MP pop-up front camera which only takes 0.5 seconds to activate or retract. To broadcast your voice and facial reactions as you play, simply activate the pop-up camera to overlay your image on-screen. This feature is also compatible with popular streaming apps.

You can easily remove the background and use AI to auto-enhance your image using the selfie editor with matching retouching filters and correction options.
