A new handheld gaming PC called the Lenovo Legion Go may soon be hitting the market, as reported by Windows Report. This device is expected to compete with popular handheld gaming systems like the Steam Deck and the ROG Ally. According to the report, the Lenovo Legion Go could be available as early as October this year, but it will come with a price tag of $799.
The Lenovo Legion Go is said to feature an 8.8-inch QHD+ screen, making it slightly larger than both the Steam Deck and the ROG Ally, which have 7-inch screens. It will also come with 16GB of RAM and three storage options: 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB NVMe M.2. The device will be powered by AMD RYZEN Z1 Series processors and will run Windows 11 Home by default, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of games.
One interesting feature of the Legion Go is its emphasis on the Xbox gaming ecosystem. According to the report, the device will launch with 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, allowing users to access a library of games right out of the box. A leaked trailer suggests that the handheld will feature Xbox exclusives like Starfield and Hi-Fi Rush.
Additionally, it seems that Lenovo has plans for peripherals to accompany the Legion Go. The report mentions the launch of AR glasses in October, which will be compatible with devices beyond the Legion Go. These glasses will have OLED displays and will retail for $499. Lenovo is also reportedly working on the Legion E510 7.1 RGB headsets, set to launch in October as well.
In the ever-evolving handheld gaming scene, the Lenovo Legion Go is set to bring some exciting competition. Alongside the Legion Go, gamers can also look forward to the PlayStation Portal, which will allow them to play PlayStation games on the go using a dedicated remote play device.
