Lenovo today introduced its first Windows gaming handheld – the Legion Go. The compact console has an 8.8-inch LCD display with QHD+ resolution (1,600 x 2,560 pixels) and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. The touchscreen panel offers an aspect ratio of 16:10 and a brightness of up to 500 nits. It supports various resolutions from 1600p down to 800p and can lower the refresh rate down to a power-saving 60 Hz.

Taking inspiration from the Nintendo Switch, Lenovo equipped the Legion Go with detachable controllers called Legion TrueStrike and a kickstand. The controllers feature Hall Effect joysticks and a variety of buttons, including a touchpad, 10 remappable shoulder triggers, and a scroll wheel. Lenovo even went a step further and added a controller base module that attaches to the right controller via magnets. This allows you to support the controller and use it as a mouse. The right controller has an optical sensor at the bottom, like a real mouse.

Lenovo has chosen AMD’s Ryzen Z1 series chipsets. You can even configure a Ryzen Z1 Extreme while an RDNA 3 GPU handles the graphics. The Lenovo Legion Go is configurable with up to 1TB of PCIe Gen4 SSD storage (M.2 2242), and there’s a microSD slot for up to 2TB of additional storage. All models come with 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM running at 7,500MHz.

Cooling is provided by a special cooling system that uses a liquid polymer fan. It reaches a maximum of 25 dB at 25 watts of total graphics power (TGP). There are also two USB-C ports (USB 4.0, DisplayPort 1.4, Power Delivery 3.0), a 3.5mm audio jack, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity.

Lenovo Legion Go prices

Windows 11 Home is used as the operating system, but with a special overlay called Legion Space. All of your games and launchers are found here, and Lenovo also offers a free three-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription with every Legion Go handheld.

The Legion Go is equipped with a two-cell 49.2 Wh battery that recharges 70% capacity in 30 minutes. The console also supports bypass mode for gaming and simultaneous charging via the included 65-watt PD charger. The base model is priced at $699/€799. The start is in November, just in time for Christmas.
