The Lenovo Legion GO will cost $1,399 AUD in Australia and will release in late October 2023.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE LENOVO LEGION GO
The Lenovo Legion GO features an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor (same as the ROG Ally), but it has a massive 8.8-inch QHD+ 16:10 display display (500 nits in brightness) supporting resolutions of up to 1600p and 144hz. It has support for a 1TB SSD and a 1TB MicroSD slot as well.
It has a massive 49.2Wh capacity battery as well as Super Rapid Charge capability recharging up to 70% in just half an hour. Dual USB-C ports are included so that you can charge the device whilst connecting other accessories.
A very interesting differentiation between the Lenovo Legion GO and other Windows handhelds is the fact that it has detachable Joysticks just like the Nintendo Switch. They use hall effect joy-sticks, and have really interesting inputs such as a trackpad, an angled mouse wheel and a total of 10 mappable shoulder buttons, triggers and grip buttons.
There’s also a button to enable FPS mode which will allow you to put the joystick in a kickstand of sorts, and allow for precise movements that mimic that of a mouse for use in first person shooters.
I know more than most how important it is to have a custom OS when using Windows on one of these handhelds, and Lenovo clearly knows hta too as Lenovo Space is a frontend loader that will allow you to access all of your games, as well as quick settings.
LENOVO LEGION GLASSES
That’s not all though. Lenovo also announced the Lenovo Legion Glasses which will allow you to connect the Lenovo Legion Go or most Windows, Android and Mac devices in order to put your device on a big screen in front of you with its MicroOLED displays and a 60hz refresh rate. They also have built-in speakers as well.
