Despite the various difficulties, smartphone makers have not abandoned gaming handsets. Several companies have released powerful devices designed for Gaming on the go. The Lenovo released last year one gaming phone and now returns to the arena with a follow-up of the smartphone, the Legion Phone Duel 2. The new smartphone retains some of the features of the previous phone but comes with one innovative design.

Maintains the image refresh rate of 144Hz from the original Legion, and has the same pop-up camera on the side, which however has been upgraded from 20MP to 44MP and offers the ability to record 4K video. At the back, it has a 64 MP main camera and a 16 MP wide angle.
Also, a key feature is new cooling system powered by two turbo fans, so you can play many hours without problems. Lenovo has also installed the telephone processor in the center, for better heat dissipation. So gamers' fingers will not feel so hot in landscape mode.
