Lenovo Legion Go Price and Release Dated Leaked

With just days before its official unveiling at IFA 2023, a massive leak has revealed the specs, pricing, and accessories of the Lenovo Legion Go Portable Gaming PC. Aimed squarely at rivals like Valve’s Steam Deck and ASUS ROG Ally, the Legion Go is setting up to be a powerful contender in the handheld gaming scene.

Lenovo Legion Go: A Beast in Handheld Form

According to the leaked official document, the Legion Go is set to be a beast of a machine. The console will run on Windows 11 and sport an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor, setting it apart from its competitors in terms of power. As for RAM, it’s slated to have 16GB of 7500Mhz LPDDR5X, significantly faster than the RAM in both Steam Deck and ROG Ally.

According to the leaked document, the Lenovo Legion Go is expected to be priced at €799/$799 for the base model. This pricing positions it as a premium portable gaming device, and while it may be on the higher end of the cost spectrum, it aims to offer a robust set of features to justify the expense. The device runs on Windows 11, comes with an AMD Ryzen processor, and features an 8-inch OLED display, making it a potent combination for gamers looking for both power and portability. Given its specs and the added capability to pair seamlessly with Lenovo’s Legion AR Glasses, the Legion Go could potentially offer a unique and compelling mobile gaming ecosystem that could justify its premium price tag.

Display and Battery

One of the standout features is its massive 8.8-inch QHD+ (2560 x 1600) display, which might be considered overkill for a device of this size. On the battery front, the Legion Go will feature a 49.2WHr battery with Super Rapid Charge capabilities, although this still seems to be an area where the device may not outperform its rivals.

Pricing and Availability

The Legion Go is priced at €799/$799 and is expected to be available in October. While the device has robust specifications, the price point is on the higher side, aligning with competitors like ROG Ally.

Augment Your Reality with Lenovo Legion AR Glasses

The leaked document also mentioned Legion AR Glasses, priced at €499/$499, designed to enhance your gaming experience. These glasses are not exclusive to the Legion Go and can be used with any device supporting USB-C.

The Lenovo Legion AR Glasses are designed to work in conjunction with the Legion Go, a new portable gaming device that runs on Windows 11. They are also versatile enough to be used with any device that supports a full-function USB-C with DP Alt mode. This opens up the possibilities for compatibility with other Windows, Android, and macOS devices.

One of the standout features of these glasses is the Micro OLED display, offering a resolution of 1920 x 1080 per eye. This high-quality display aims to bring augmented reality gaming to a new level, offering crisp visuals and a truly immersive experience.

The AR Glasses also offer a 60Hz refresh rate, which while not groundbreaking, should offer a smooth enough visual experience for most users. The high-fidelity built-in speakers promise to deliver superior audio quality to match the visuals.

More than Just Gaming

The Legion Go appears to be more than just a gaming console. Its impressive display and powerful internals indicate it could double as a media consumption device, raising questions about the possible existence of a native handheld mode in future Windows 11 updates.

Final Thoughts

With its impressive specs and suite of accessories, the Lenovo Legion Go is shaping up to be a serious contender in the portable gaming market. However, its premium price and potentially underwhelming battery life may be sticking points for some gamers. We’ll know more once the device is officially unveiled on September 1st.
