When your phone battery is low and you're in a rush to leave, plugging your charger in and impatiently waiting an extra couple of minutes for just a tiny percentage of extra juice can hardly seem worth it. However, the Lenovo Legion could be the answer to your troubles. This upcoming camera phone (opens in new tab) is due to be announced soon, but the latest teaser video boasts that it'll be able to set the record for fast charging. 

Apparently, the Lenovo Legion's 90W 'Twin Turbo' system will be able to fully charge the Legion's 5,000 mAh battery in just 30 minutes, beating out the current most powerful fast charger – Oppo's 65W SuperVOOC system.

To help achieve these lightning-fast charging speeds, the Lenovo Legion's battery has been split into two cells in order to double the charging speed. According to (opens in new tab) GSMArena, Legion has implemented 16 security checks to help ensure that all that power remains under control.

Interestingly, the Lenovo Legion will have two USB-C ports, one on the bottom and one on the side. This means that you can easily charge your phone regardless of whether you're holding it vertically or horizontally. This means that no matter whether you're scrolling through Instagram, or watching your favorite show on Netflix, you don't need to worry about losing power.

The Lenovo Legion will be launched on Wednesday 22 July with a 144Hz screen, dual linear vibration motors and a pop-up selfie camera. It will also feature the Snapdragon 865+, a powerful chipset that enables 5G.
