Lenovo is working on a handheld gaming PC called the Legion Go that will run Windows 11 and feature AMD’s 7040 Series “Phoenix” processors, according to sources with Windows Central. The device will supposedly feature an 8-inch display, making it larger than the ASUS ROG Ally or Steam Deck, and while there aren’t any photos of the hardware yet, speculation would suggest that it could look a lot like the Legion Play, a handheld that Lenovo previously teased but then canceled. There’s no word on when the Legion Go might be unveiled.
The AMD Phoenix 7040 series chips are described by the firm as “ultra-thin” for powerful, but elegant ultrabook-style devices. They should lend themselves well to a device like the Legion Go, supporting 15W low-power states for lightweight games and maximized battery life, similar to the Steam Deck and ROG Ally. The Z1 Extreme in the ASUS ROG Ally can perform with a TDP below 15W, however, which could give the ROG Ally some advantages there, but we simply don’t know what type of Phoenix chip Lenovo plans to use. There’s every chance the Legion Go could have other configurations we’re unaware of yet, though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
