Lenovo seems to be working on an Asus ROG Ally competitor that could be called the Lenovo Legion Go. The photos of the upcoming gaming handheld device from Lenovo have now been leaked. The development comes months after Lenovo announced an exit from the Android-based gaming smartphones business.
The exclusive report from Windows Central apparently gives us our first look at the Lenovo Legion Go, thanks to official-looking photos shared by the publication. The brand seems to have been inspired from Nintendo’s Switch as it will be offering detachable controllers on each side with RGB lighting around the two joysticks. Furthermore, the device could employ an AMD’s Ryzen 7040 ‘Phoenix’ series chipset.
At the back, there seems to be a kickstand that can be used for the device to place it on a flat surface while you play with the controllers sitting away from it. There seem to be a lot of buttons on the controllers, including the standard ones such as X, Y, A, and B and the navigational arrow buttons on the left. However, users will also get M1 and M2 shoulder buttons, with the latter extending to the side of the device.
The back of the gaming handheld will have M3 and M4 buttons on the right controller as well as a scroll wheel. The left controller equips Y1 and Y2 buttons on the back, which may be remappable. There are also huge air vents on the back of the main device to let out the heat the machine will generate while running demanding titles.
For connectivity, players should get a decent amount of options, such as a microSD card slot, headphone jack, and a USB-C port on the top of the device. The bottom will get an additional USB-C port. Lastly, the device may run on Windows 11 Home OS and gets an 8-inch screen with the details regarding which are unknown.
