Remember the time when there only existed PlayStation Portable as the only means for us to play games using a handheld console? Well, times have changed and in 2021, the handheld console gaming market is receiving some much-needed love.
The soon-to-be-launched Nintendo Switch OLED which is only a few days away from being launched and the surprisingly impressive Steam Deck which is being called the mini-PC. And now it seems that we have yet another entry into the handheld gaming market and believe me, no one saw this coming.
According to reports, Lenovo is now preparing its very own handheld gaming device that will rival other already available devices. The handheld from Lenovo will be called the Lenovo Legion Play, and it will reportedly come out sooner than one would expect.
The leaker, Liliputing reportedly found the images of the Lenovo Legion Play along with some more information related to the device. And the interesting part is that the images were all linked to Lenovo’s website as well which makes the existence of the device pretty solid.
There were also rumors that Lenovo was supposed to release its Legion Play at MWC 2021 earlier this year, however, the company decided against it for some reason. The handheld will run on a custom version of Android, and the icons of Geforce Now are already present in the leaked images.
We can also see a Google Play Store and other Google Apps. In terms of connectivity we can see that the device offers USB Type-C, a 3.5mm audio jack, dual analog sticks, four face buttons, as well a D-Pad and shoulder keeps.
Another interesting factor is that Lenovo has designed its handheld device for AAA gaming, and according to sources this will be the first Android cloud gaming console that will let users stream hundreds of cloud games and stream their game library. Users will also be able to play mobile games as well.
The Lenovo Legion Play will feature a 7-inch FHD display, HDR10+, built-in controllers, dual speakers, dual vibration motors, and a 7,000 mAh battery.
