Legion Go Release Date – Anticipating the Ultimate Gaming Experience
Lenovo has released a portable gaming computer to challenge systems like the Steam Deck and the Asus ROG Ally. Launching in October for $699, the Windows 11–powered Legion Go will be sold at Lenovo’s online store, Best Buy, and Micro Center.
The Legion Go may appear like its rivals (and share some of their specifications). Still, it is currently unrivaled in this category thanks to its high-end screen and feature-packed detachable controllers. The 8.8-inch touchscreen display supports a maximum of 1600p resolution and 144 Hz refresh rate, although this can be reduced to 800p and 60 Hz to extend battery life and improve performance.
Although Lenovo claims a 70 percent charge in 30 minutes when using the accompanying 65 W charger, a 1600p display will severely drain the device’s 49.2 Wh battery. The Legion Go’s attempts to differentiate itself in the handheld PC market rely on techniques made famous (but not perfected) by the Nintendo Switch. For instance, it can be reclined without any extra tools because it has a built-in kickstand.
The Legion Go’s standout feature is its removable controllers, which resemble futuristic Joy-Cons in design. I’ve found that the Hall effect joysticks included in them are more precise than the potentiometers typically found in analog sticks, even after extensive use. The mouse has all the usual controls, plus a slew of extras like programmable macro buttons, a thumb trackpad, and a scroll wheel.
First-person shooter gameplay is simplified with a magnetic dock that props up the right controller. After switching to first-person shooter mode, an optical sensor on the bottom activates, allowing you to move it around like a mouse for more precise targeting. It’s an intriguing concept, and I can’t wait to see how it fares in actual use.
The Legion Go, just like the ROG Ally and Steam Deck, may be docked to a display, and Bluetooth controllers can be connected to it. It supports microSD cards and PCIe NVMe SSDs (like the kind used in some ThinkPad laptops from Lenovo) for playing games. The base model comes with a 256 GB SSD, while Lenovo also offers 512 GB and 1 TB options (though they haven’t yet revealed their respective prices).
Lenovo also announced wired Legion Glasses on Friday, so those who like to live lavishly may watch the Legion Go on their own personal virtual screen. The micro-OLED display in each lens of the glasses can deliver 1080p quality at 60 Hz, allowing for a large-screen experience that can be taken anywhere.
Lenovo’s devices have built-in speakers that produce what the company calls “high-fidelity” sound. Even better, they’re compatible with more systems than just the Legion Go. This includes Windows and macOS desktops, Android phones, and probably any portable gaming hardware that supports USB-C video output via DisplayPort alt mode. The $329 Legion Glasses will launch alongside the similarly named Legion Go in October.
