Lenovo will announce its second-gen gaming smartphone this week. The phone which is expected to arrive as the Lenovo Legion 2 Pro will pack significant upgrades over its predecessor. Today, Lenovo has confirmed one of the features that have been upgraded is the front-facing camera.
According to a Weibo post by the official Legion Gaming Phone account, the Legion 2 Pro will have a 44MP front-facing camera. That is a big jump from the 20MP camera of the Legion Duel/Legion Pro.
The attached poster also reveals that the front-facing camera will be a motorized pop-up camera that slides out from the side just like on last year’s model.
Lenovo’s new gaming phone is not the only phone with a 44MP front-facing camera this year. The Vivo S9 and the recently announced ZTE S30 Pro both have 44MP front-facing cameras too.
So far it has been confirmed that the Legion 2 Pro will have a 6.92-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 720Hz touch sampling rate. Just like last year’s model, the display will be flat.
There will be a Snapdragon 888 processor under the hood along with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. The phone will have a 64MP OV64A 1/1.32-inch primary rear camera with support for 4K recording at 120 fps and 8K video recording at 30 fps. Below is a sample photo that was taken with the camera.
Lenovo has bumped the battery capacity from 5000mAh on the first-gen model to 5500mAh. However, you still get 90W fast wired charging but with an updated charging algorithm. Lenovo even claims that the battery will still retain 85% of its original capacity even after 1200 charge cycles.
The Legion 2 Pro will be announced on April 8 in China and should get an international release later.
