So the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel just launched and we already know what you’re going to ask: Is it coming to the Philippines? The short answer is yes. As to the matter of when, we still aren’t sure.
We reached out to Lenovo Philippines and asked if they can give us a hint on when we can expect the Duel to hit the archipelago. This is their exact response:
“We are excited about bringing the Legion Phone to Asia-Pacific and will announce local availability in the coming weeks.”
So we don’t exactly know for sure when it’s coming, but we do know it will get here eventually and that’s something to be excited about.
UPDATE AS OF SEPTEMBER 12, 2020:
Lenovo Philippines has dropped a teaser of the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel. It could launch just before the holidays.
Lenovo Legion Phone Duel
The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel has a 6.65-inch AMOLED display with 144Hz refresh rate with a 240Hz sampling rate. Inside, it’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus and two RAM options 12GB and 16GB. For storage, it has 512GB UFS 3.1.
It has many more gaming-oriented design and features. It has two 2500mAh batteries — separated strategically for cooling. To juice up, it has 90W Turbo Power Charging. You even have to ports to choose from — one on the bottom like usual, and one to the side which lets you charge while playing in horizontal mode. It also has dual front-facing speakers.
If you’re into streaming your games, this is built for that too. There’s a side-mounted 20MP front-facing camera that can capture 1080P videos and record up to 4K video at 30FPS. There are also four noise-cancelling mics around the phone to help reduce background noise while you stream.
The phone will be available first in China where it’s called Lenovo Legion Phone Pro. It will hit several other markets at a later date.

Razer now has its own gaming finger sleeves
Keeping your thumbs dry
Razer has somehow transformed into the ruler of gaming lifestyle accessories. After releasing treasure troves of peripherals and devices, the company has slowly branched off into stranger and stranger niches including toasters and SUVs. Razer is now blending peripheral with accessory in its latest product: Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves.
If you haven’t heard of finger sleeves before, think gloves but only for your fingers — or, in this case, finger. The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are meant to be worn on your thumbs. It’s specifically made for mobile gamers.
Made with a mixture of sliver fiber fabric, nylon, and spandex, the sleeves can keep your thumbs dry for serious gaming on your phone. Despite wrapping your thumbs, Razer says that the fabric is still breathable at 0.8 millimeters. They’re also a universal fit for any type of thumb.
Mobile gaming is one of the most popular forms of entertainment especially in Asian countries like the Philippines. Playing on your phone can easily whittle away the time spent in traffic or outdoors. However, since some countries are too warm and humid, sweat can just as easily accumulate and create an unsightly portrait on our otherwise pristine phone screens.
The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are out now and retails for US$ 9.99.
The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset now sports Midnight Black
Nicely paired with the DualSense controller and your “Midnight Black” PS5
Back in June, Sony announced two additional colorways for its next-generation DualSense controller. Apart from the classic white, the PlayStation 5’s newest controller also received a Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. This time around, they’ve extended the invitation to another PS5 peripheral, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.
Much like the DualSense controller, the headset will also come in Midnight Black. Other than this, everything else is pretty much the same for the Pulse 3D Headset. In essence, it still gives you deeper, more immersive 3D sounds to games that fully take advantage of this. It’s just that now, you have other color options to choose from. Whether or not this also comes in Cosmic Red, Sony has yet to announce that.
It’s worth noting that included in the PS5’s second major update is an equalizer for the 3D Pulse. It adds another layer of control for players. This lets them enjoy the game precisely the way they want to. But if tweaking isn’t your thing, there are also three presets: Standard, Bass Boost, or Shooter.
The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset in Midnight Black will be available on October 29 for PhP 5,590/ SG$ 149 / MYR 469/ DR1,699,000 / THB3,490 / VND2,699,000.
Nintendo Switch gets Bluetooth audio compatibility
Update rolling out today
The Nintendo Switch is one of the most versatile consoles available today. Besides being a home console, commuters and travelers can easily take their favorite games with them. However, for all its bells and whistles, the console lacks a key feature present in today’s traveling tech: Bluetooth audio support. In a surprise move, Nintendo is finally bringing the Switch into the wireless fold.
Today, an official software update is rolling out to Switches everywhere. The update adds in support for Bluetooth audio output. Gamers can now play their favorite games through the wireless earbud of their choice. The system’s settings screen now has a Bluetooth Audio setting to pair the console with wireless audio devices.
There are some caveats, though. The new feature is a single-player one. Users can’t attach Bluetooth microphones using the update. Though some games thrive in multiplayer, Nintendo won’t allow the feature yet.
Further, only on audio device can be paired at a single time, adding more complications for local multiplayer. Likewise, pairing an audio device will limit the console’s wireless controller connections to just two at a time. There might be some latency issues as well, according to the official support page.
The update is already rolling out now. Switch users should have access to the feature as soon as they get it.
