- Lenovo is working on an entire gaming ecosystem around the Legion Go.
- The AR glasses could be small enough to wear for long gaming sessions.
- The AR glasses will likely have a USB Type-C port for power connection.
Lenovo is long rumoured to be working on a gaming handheld called Legion Go. Its most recent leak gave us a good look at the device’s design but a fresh report has revealed more details. It claims the company’s goal is not limited to adding another gaming handset to the market. It has ambitions to create an entire gaming ecosystem around the Legion Go featuring a pair of AR glasses.
Lenovo AR Glasses: Features and Specifications
A new report from Windows Report cites its “reliable sources” to claim Lenovo is working on a pair of AR glasses. It says these glasses will have features specifically developed for gaming purposes. The aim is to deliver an immersive gaming experience to gamers that goes beyond gaming solely on the handset.
It is suggested Lenovo AR glasses could be small enough in size to wear for longer gaming sessions. This makes sense because if they are uncomfortable to wear for a long period of time, then it does not really matter how immersive the gaming experience is. These will come with Legion branding but the exact name is currently unknown.
Similarly, Lenovo AR glasses’ specifications are under wraps. The report speculates we may see high refresh rate panels on the headset. There is said to be a single USB Type-C port, most likely for powering the device. It means there are slim chances that Lenovo will offer a standalone battery with glasses. It is also unknown if these will also work as a standalone device or will need to be constantly paired with the Legion Go handheld.
Lenovo could decide to offer both the AR glasses and Legion Go as a bundle to the buyers. Both of these are expected to launch at IFA 2023 next month. Nevertheless, AR glasses will surely make the Legion Go stand apart from other gaming handhelds like the Asus ROG Ally, Steam Deck, and Nintendo Switch.
Lenovo Legion Go Ports, Buttons, and Specifications
The report further shared a new Legion Go image revealing its ports and buttons. It says the device will have comparatively smaller bezels than other offerings. It is shown with a USB Type-C port, an FPS mode switch, a mouse sensor, and two microphones. It also has a 3.5mm combo audio jack, a microSD card reader, and all the other traditional gaming handheld buttons.
The Legion Go is reported to be powered by AMD’s Ryzen Z1 processor which is meant specifically for handheld gaming devices. The device will boot Windows 11 out of the box. There are currently no details on the Legion Go pricing and release date but we will keep you informed.
