Almost a month after the debut of its second generation gaming smartphone, Lenovo has announced a new variant of the Legion Phone Duel 2 that is slated to arrive in Malaysia next month. This newly introduced version comes with a smaller internal storage capacity, which makes it slightly more affordable than the initial two models that were released in June.
Specifications-wise, everything else included on this variant remains the same. To recap, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 comes with a 6.92-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 144Hz refresh rate and 720Hz touch sampling rate. Featured on the device are a total of six capacitive buttons for gaming, two USB-C charging ports, while on its side is a pop-up front-facing camera module which houses a 44MP sensor. Situated on its back is a dual camera setup which features a 64MP primary shooter, and a 16MP ultra-wide sensor.
Under the phone’s hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, which is kept cooled during intense gaming sessions by a dual fan system and two separate vents. Paired with it is a RAM capacity of 12GB and, as mentioned earlier, a smaller internal storage capacity of 128GB. Powering the Legion Phone Duel 2 are two 2,750mAh battery cells, totalling up its overall capacity to 5,500mAh. Each USB-C port on the device allows for 65W of fast charging support, while using both of these together will grant for an even faster rate that is capped at 90W.
The new 12GB + 128GB variant of the Legion Phone Duel 2 is offered in Ultimate Black, and – according to Lenovo – is tentatively priced at RM2,999. The company noted that it will provide a finalised price for the phone once it arrives in Malaysia by early August 2021. For reference, the previously launched 12GB RAM + 256GB and the beefier 16GB + 512 versions of the gaming smartphone are currently retailing at RM3,099 and RM3,699 respectively via the brand’s official website.
