The Legion 2 Pro is touted to become the world's first dual-fan gaming smartphone on its launch. New leaks might partially confirm this tip while spoiling its unique design in the process. These images show a mobile device with the back-lit logo one might expect from this upcoming Lenovo product, contained in a highly distinctive rear panel.

Lenovo has been teasing the Legion 2 Pro extensively by dropping various details and specs day by day as its launch draws closer. As a result, we are left in no doubt that the device will emerge as a flagship Android gaming smartphone with the Snapdragon 888 processor, up to 16GB of RAM and a 144Hz refresh-rate AMOLED screen on April 8, 2021.

Despite all this, Lenovo has yet to hype the Legion 2 Pro in terms of its looks. However, some less official leakers may have taken this stage of its reveal out of the OEM's hands. The Twitter user @yabhishekhd has just reposted Digital Chat Station's new images that purport to show the phone's front and rear panels.

The latter depicts a mobile device in which a uniform glossy finish for what is probably a glass back is broken into three by a mid-line module taking up the entire width of the phone. Within its slightly raised, defined border, rear cameras and what seems to be 1 of the 2 Pro's dual fans, arranged on either side of the signature Y-shaped Legion logo, are found.

That central feature is, of course, RGB. The design, while rather unique among gaming phones, does in fact mirror that of the first-gen Lenovo gaming phone. The "Legion 2 Pro's" display is also shown, and appears to have a small forehead and chin, despite its by-now confirmed pop-up selfie camera that could leave this 6.92-inch panel edge-to-edge.

Then again, it could be argued that this choice might make the phone easier to grip during gaming; something that can also be said for its alleged rear panel. Moreover, the display in question appears to be flat. According to its latest leaks, the Legion 2 Pro comes in dark gray or off-white main color options.

Hopefully, its putative camera/fan hump will not prove a weak point during any bend tests it may have to endure following its impending launch.
