Lenovo confirms the return of the side-mounted pop-up selfie camera in the Legion 2 Pro
Lenovo instituted a "landscape" selfie camera in its inaugural flagship gaming phone, the Legion Phone Duel. It kept this device's 144Hz AMOLED display free from interruptions, and was also present to allow players to take selfies or stream reactions while gaming (according to Lenovo, at least). Now, it is officially back in this ROG Phone rival's second generation, the Legion 2 Pro.
This side-mounted module is getting an upgrade, moreover: it is to be a 44MP sensor as opposed to 20MP in its first iteration. It should leave the Legion 2 Pro's new and also improved 6.92-inch AMOLED display as clean as possible. Lenovo has also just announced that, although this panel will remain at 144Hz in terms of refresh rate, it will get a potentially class-leading 720Hz multi-finger touch-response rate.
These new details have been revealed as part of the OEM's teaser campaign counting down to the Legion 2 Pro's launch. Earlier instalments of this series have also dropped juicy tidbits such as the phone's Snapdragon 888 processor and 16GB RAM option. Therefore, it might emerge as a serious headache for others in its arena, such as the Black Shark 4 and RedMagic 6 lines on its April 8, 2021 debut.
