Following The Beat Asia’s first look of the device, updates suggest that the Legion Go aims to position itself against the Steam Deck and Asus ROG Ally. As more information is being released, we are now able to share a more detailed look at Lenovo’s innovative approach to handheld gaming.

According to Windows Report, the Legion Go will sport Windows 11 – making it an attractive option for PC gamers. The device will also likely be officially unveiled at IFA 2023 from Sept. 1 to 5. The console combines some of the best hardware features of some of its competitors and may potentially come bundled with AR glasses.

The AR glasses are reportedly part of Lenovo’s plan to launch a fleshed-out gaming ecosystem to accompany the Legion Go. Specifically tweaked for gaming, the AR glasses are also expected to be unveiled at IFA 2023. Based on the leaked images, the glasses seem compact enough to wear through long gaming sessions, with a USB cable connecting them to any device.

It is speculated that the Legion AR glasses will feature a high refresh rate and other gaming-specific elements, supported by the Legion branding. Although it is currently unknown if the Legion AR glasses are a standalone device, the images indicate that both the Legion Go and Legion AR glasses should work together seamlessly.

The new images reveal that the Legion Go seems to boast a larger 8-inch screen with smaller bezels than its competitors, with joy-cons that feature classic button placement and potentially Hall Effect joysticks. With a trackpad similar to Valve’s Steam Deck and a mouse wheel on the back of the right joy-con, which could offer interesting game play possibilities.

There is no official information regarding the availability or price of the Legion Go, but Windows Reports’ estimates that Lenovo will be looking to position it closer to the Rog Ally, putting it in the US$600 to US$900 range.
