It looks like the handheld console craze is here to stay and the Nintendo Switch’s reign is at stake. After Valve’s Steam Deck, we are now seeing another handheld game console, Lenovo Legion Play. It is based on Android and ready to join the fray for that market share.
Tech website Liliputing found the Lenovo Legion Play images along with some information. Considering that the images are linked to the Lenovo website, we can consider the device’s existence more than confirmed.
Apparently, the device should have been officially unveiled at MWC 2021, but the company decided to postpone the announcement for some reason.
The device appears to be running a custom version of Android and a shortcut to platforms like GeForce Now can already be found. You can also view the Google Play Store and other Google Apps. The photos also show USB Type-C connectivity, a 3.5mm audio jack, two analog controls, four front buttons, as well as a D-Pad. The device does not appear to have any cameras.
According to information found on the site, it is designed for AAA games and the source reveals that this is the first Android cloud gaming console, which will allow users to stream hundreds of cloud games and their game library. Users will also be able to play mobile games.
The Lenovo Legion Play will feature a 7-inch FHD screen, HDR10+, integrated controllers, dual speakers, dual vibration motors and a 7,000 mAh battery.
