Lenovo Legion Go handheld PC gaming device revealed

Lenovo has officially pulled back the curtains on its Steam Deck competitor.


Last month, images surfaced online of a handheld PC gaming device from Lenovo. Set to rival Valve’s Steam Deck, its design was similar to that of the Steam Deck and the Nintendo Switch. Now we have official word, as Lenovo has officially announced the Legion Go, which is scheduled to release this November.

Lenovo spilled all the details on the Legion Go in a press release on its website today. Its specs include a AMD Ryzen Z1 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 8.8-inch QHD 16:10 touch-screen display that supports 60hz and 144hz refresh rates. It has detachable controllers on the side that can be removed for tabletop play, similar to the Switch.
