Lenovo has issued another batch of teasers for its upcoming (April 8) gaming phone Legion 2 Pro.

Things are getting interesting. The Lenovo Legion 2 Pro will have an unusual front-facing camera to say the least. It will be use a motorized pop-up mechanism and will be located on the side, so as to face you correctly while you're gaming in landscape.

Also, the sensor is a 44MP one. It's likely that it will pixel-bin 4 pixels into 1 for a resulting 11MP selfie image.

The main camera of the Legion 2 Pro will use OmniVision's latest 1/1.32-inch OV64A sensor with 64MP resolution and resulting 16MP final images. It will be able to capture 4K at 120fps video and 8K at 30fps.

Lenovo also shared a teaser of the Legion 2 Pro's dual-fan cooling system. It will feature twin-turbo fans that can ramp up in tandem for increased efficiency. There will be a specially-designed liquid cooling chamber between the fans, meant to take the heat away from the chipset.

The custom cooling solution is reportedly costly to research and develop, but Lenovo promises the Legion 2 Pro will be one of the phones with the best heat dissipation.

The moto g100 doesn't use this sensor. It uses the OV64b which is a far inferior sensor. The OV64a is in a different league and is Omnivision's flagship sensor
