Lenovo To Release 5G-Enabled Gaming Phone
Tech-giant and smart phone manufacturer Lenovo is about to take mobile gaming to all-new levels. The manufacturer has just announced what will probably emerge as their most enthralling gaming smartphone to date. It’s called the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel, it’s 5G-enabled, and it features a pop-up selfie camera designed specifically for streaming.
Powered by the new Snapdragon 865 Plus 5G Mobile Platform from Qualcomm, 16GB of RAM, and on-board storage of up to 512GB, the latest smart phone release from Lenovo promises to be quite the mobile gaming monster.
The pop-up camera is equipped with 20MP-tech and captures 1080p footage in HD. Fully 4K-enabled, this little camera can record up to 30 FPS – which all pretty much means that you can stream content from just about wherever you happen to find yourself.
Display And Controls
The 6.65” Full AD AMOLED display with its 144Hz refresh rate make of the Legion Phone Duel the ultimate mobile gaming companion. Designed to mimic a full-on gaming console, the phone even comes standard with an OS capable of supporting and implementing virtual gamepad controls. Standard mobile gaming controllers can obviously be connected as an alternative option.
What does make the virtual gamepad controls rather special is that the screen’s touch signals are connected to gyro sensors. These send a continuous stream of data to the display driver, which in turn results in a particularly smooth game-command execution style.
A Mobile Gaming Monster
A definite additional added bonus, and one bound to appeal to those gamers who enjoy streaming their own gaming action, is the phone’s simple streaming integration with sites such as YouTube and Twitch. The end-result is that all you’ll really need to reach your mobile A-game while streaming your proudest moments as you go, is the phone and an internet connection. And perhaps a headset to go with that.
What’s really nice on the motion-control end of things is the built-in virtual controller option. While many players may still prefer a physical controller doing the in-game steering, the built-in option promises a smooth and easy ride with no lag on the response.
The gyro mapping technology coupled with the built-in virtual gamepad controls make of the Legion something along the lines of a DualShock. And since what it really is, is a mobile smart phone, it becomes really easy to see why Lenovo’s latest work of genius is expected to revolutionise the way we do in-game mobile streaming.
