Lenovo today unveiled the gaming Legion 2 Pro, a smartphone that will be the main competitor to the Asus ROG Phone 5 and Black Shark 4 Pro. Like these models, the new Lenovo is based on the top SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, equipped with LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1, but in terms of the cooling system, the Legion 2 Pro is a completely unique device.
To begin with, there are no less than 14 high-precision temperature sensors inside the case! They serve to determine the degree of heating not only of key components such as the processor and memory chips, but also the zones that are under the hands of the gamer – to ensure proper cooling and, thereby, increase comfort during long games.
The cooling system is the highlight of the Lenovo Legion 2 Pro. Apparently, here the best practices of the company’s division, engaged in the production of laptops, are used. So, like gaming laptops, Legion 2 Pro received two fans at once with individual ventilation ducts. The diameter of each “propeller” is 29 mm. They are characterized by a service life of 50,000 hours and a low noise level of 24.7 dB. Also in the cooling system is the industry’s largest evaporation chamber with an area of 4,730 mm².
In general, the problems with overheating of other flagships on Snapdragon 888 (first it happened with Xiaomi Mi 11, now with OnePlus 9 Pro) will definitely not be affected by Legion 2 Pro. In AnTuTu, the novelty is gaining 855,004 points – this is a very good result.
Lenovo Legion 2 Pro received a large AMOLED screen Samsung E4 with a diagonal of 6.92 inches with a frame rate of 144 Hz and a response rate of the touch layer of 720 Hz. Peak brightness is 1300 cd / m2, coverage of DCI-P3 color space is 111.1%, Delta E value is less than 0.5. There is also TUV Rheinland certification and DC Dimmig support, which eliminates flicker at minimum brightness.
Like other gaming smartphones, Lenovo Legion 2 Pro is equipped with additional keys: there are both shoulder keys (like in game consoles) on the side edge, and a pair of capacitive ones on the back panel. Not without customizable RGB lighting on the back, otherwise what kind of gaming smartphone is it?
The front camera of Lenovo Legion 2 Pro is retractable, it uses a sensor with a resolution of 44 megapixels. The main camera is represented by three sensors. The main one – OmniVision OV64A optical format 1 / 1.32 inches with a resolution of 64 megapixels. This is a fairly large sensor for a gaming model. Other sensors are simpler: the 16-megapixel is mated to a 120 ° ultra-wide-angle lens, while the 2-megapixel is for macro shooting.
Lenovo Legion 2 Pro received a rechargeable battery with a capacity of 5500 mAh with support for fast charging with a capacity of 90 W – it is able to charge the smartphone’s battery by 82% in just 17 minutes. However, due to a decent battery capacity and a complex multicomponent cooling system, the Legion 2 Pro turned out to be “plump” (thickness – 10.32 mm) and heavy: weight – 262 grams.
The prices have already been announced and are as follows: 8/128 GB – $ 565, 12/128 GB – $ 625, 12/256 GB – $ 670, 16/512 GB – $ 810.
