Leaks Allege Lenovo Legion Go Cranking Its Specs To 11, Rivaling ROG Ally

After the previous leak and bombshell (courtesy of Windows Central), outlet Windows Report has dropped more information on Lenovo’s upcoming ROG Ally-rivaling console, the Legion Go. Based on the specs provided by an anonymous tipster, the company is aiming for the crème de la crème of the gaming handheld segment. (It’s worth noting that Legion and ROG faced off in mobile markets before, before Legion left the smartphone market earlier this year.)

The report claims that Lenovo will officially unveil the console on IFA 2023, which begins on September 1st. The information allegedly originated from an internal press release document from the source, which mentions a few things: it runs Windows 11, is powered by AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme, and new accessories are launching alongside it. Windows Report noted that the leak includes a video showcasing the product, but chose not to reveal at this time.

In any case, the outlet has published the full spec sheet as follows:

To summarize, the specs indicate that there will be at least three versions of the Legion Go available, going by the storage options offered. We may see a cut-down version that uses the standard AMD Ryzen Z1 (6 core, 4 CUs) as well; and the 8.8-inch display is a QHD+ unit that ticks pretty much every box you can ask for a display (which we assume wouldn’t come cheap). It’s perhaps a bit overkill given the small size, though. In the same leak, there’s also mentions of complementary accessories, including Legion AR glasses and Legion E510 RGB wired earbuds.

Finally, the price – given the very high-end features and specs, don’t expect this console to be cheap. The report claims that Lenovo will price the Legion Go at $799, which is significantly more expensive than ROG or Valve’s offerings. The Legion AR glasses is claimed to cost $499, and the E510 earbuds is €49.99 – all three products are set to go on sale starting October 2023.

We have a few days left to see all of these are indeed real – but given the timing and the sheer amount of information available, it’s safe to say this is it. Still, a pinch of salt is welcomed – especially when it comes to pricing.
