The ROG Phone 3 isn’t the only gaming phone being announced today with the new Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, because Lenovo’s got a new device of its own.

The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel is a gaming phone that’s designed for use in landscape mode. The 20MP pop-up selfie camera actually comes out of the side of the phone to make it easier to stream yourself while you’re gaming, and the dual rear cameras — a 64MP main cam and 16MP ultra-wide sensor with 120-degree field of view — are located near the center of the device to keep them out of the way of your hands.

Another gaming touch on the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel are the ultrasonic triggers located along the right side of the device. And on the other is a centered charging port that won’t get in the way of your hands while you’re playing a game in landscape mode.

The display on Lenovo’s new device is a 6.65-inch 2340×1080 AMOLED panel with 144Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate to reduce input lag. There are dual front-facing stereo speakers so that your game audio is coming right at you, and while there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack for those times you’d rather use headphones, Lenovo does include a USB-C to 3.5mm cable adapter in the box.

Packed inside of the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel is up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The device comes with a 5000mAh battery that’s actually split into two 2500mAh batteries that are off to the sides where you hands rest rather than having them get heated up next to the logic board encasing the processor.

To help refill those batteries more quickly and get you off the charging tether, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel can charge at speeds up to 90W using both charging cables (there are two USB-C ports, one on the side and one on the bottom). Charging this way can get you from 0% to 50% power in 10 minutes and a full charge will take just 30 minutes.

Lenovo says the Legion Phone Duel will launch in China this month under the name “Lenovo Legion Phone Pro”. It’ll then hit select markets in the Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Latin America regions. Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like the device will be making its way to the US, so mobile gamers looking for a high-powered phone in that part of the globe will have to look elsewhere.
