Lenovo Legion Play prototypes that were cancelled are now being sold in China. The Legion Play has a 7-inch display and is powered by a Snapdragon 888 chipset. Other Legion Play specifications have also emerged.
The Lenovo Legion Play appears to have been nearing completion before the company pulled the plug. The ostensibly impressive gaming handheld was set to be released during MWC 2021. However, it was not released for unknown reasons.
The Legion Play has cloud game streaming capabilities.
Gaming handhelds have been on an upward trend in recent years. Several of these devices are powered by AMD APUs, and the majority of them run Windows. According to Taki Udon, prototype Legion Play units were selling for as little as $160 in China. The prototypes also include Android 11 OS out of the box with a custom launcher and HDR10 support. It also has front-facing stereo speakers and a 7,000mAh battery.
Pricing is one of the critical factors that could have influenced the release of the Legion Play. It is possible that the Lenovo Legion Play was more expensive than the Logitech G Cloud. The G Cloud is currently $300, but it has a less powerful Snapdragon 720G processor; the Steam Deck, which has a more powerful AMD APU, could be one of the reasons for the Legion Play’s cancellation.
The Lenovo Legion Play weighs 436g and has a screen resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. There is no indication of how many Legion Play units were or are still being sold. It is also unknown whether the device will require software to function.
