This year’s handheld market has been booming; we’ve seen the Nintendo Switch OLED, the Steam Deck, and the surprisingly impressive Steam Deck, and now it appears that Lenovo wants a piece of the action as well. The company is working on a device that will compete with other devices already on the market. Lenovo’s handheld device will be known as the Lenovo Legion Play, and it should be available sooner than expected.
Lenovo Wants to Take on Valve and Nintendo with the Lenovo Legion Play
The images of the Lenovo Legion Play, along with some additional information, were discovered by Liliputing, and they show the images of the new handheld. The images were also linked to Lenovo’s website, confirming its existence even further.
According to our research, the Lenovo Legion Play was supposed to debut at MWC 2021 earlier this year, but for some reason, the company decided against it. Please see the images below.
The device appears to be running a modified version of Android, with Geforce NOw icons already present. Google Play Store and other Google Apps are also available. USB Type-C connectivity, a 3.5mm audio jack, dual analogue sticks, four face buttons, a D-Pad, and shoulder keeps are also shown in the images. However, there do not appear to be any cameras on the device.
More details on the device are available, including the fact that it is designed for AAA gaming and that it is the first Android cloud gaming console that will allow users to stream hundreds of cloud games as well as their own game library, according to the source. Mobile games will also be available to users.
The Lenovo Legion Play will have a 7-inch FHD display with HDR10+ support, built-in controllers, dual speakers, dual vibration motors, and a 7,000 mAh battery.
We don’t know when Lenovo will unveil the Legion Play just yet, but we’ll keep you updated as soon as we learn more.
