Based on the images, Lenovo’s take on a PC gaming handheld looks a lot like devices like the Steam Deck and Asus ROG Ally, but it also has a lot in common with the Nintendo Switch. According windows reportthe Legion Go has an eight-inch display, the images show two Joy-Con-like controllers that can be removed, and it even appears to have a wide OLED Switch-like kickstand that can be pulled out for tabletop gaming.
The Legion Go’s controllers appear to be a combination of the Switch’s flat but removable Joy-Cons and the Steam Deck’s contoured but bonded grips. There seems to be a touchpad on the right driver; by comparison, the Steam Deck has touchpads on both sides, but the back of that right-hand controller apparently also has a wheel. And since the drivers can be removed, windows report speculates that the screen is a touch screen.
Perhaps the most important of these apparent images of the device (there are more, and you can see you all in windows report) is that Lenovo isn’t shying away from making Legion Go chunky. Asus moved away from thickness and weight with the ROG Ally, which ended up with average battery life, but we’re starting to see laptops like the forthcoming Ayaneo Kun pointing towards beefier batteries.
windows report says Legion Go will run Windows 11, which means you should be able to play any Windows game that supports the device’s specs. windows center previously reported that it would use AMD Phoenix processors, which are also found in ROG Ally and other recent and future Windows handhelds.
Lenovo did not immediately comment.
