Lenovo Legion Play Handheld Game Console Leaked;  Here's a first look

With the growing demand for handheld game consoles like Nintendo Switch, this year we saw the launch of some advanced handheld game consoles. Nintendo launched its long-awaited Switch OLED, following which Steam jumped on the bandwagon with the launch of the Steam Deck handheld console. Now, it appears that Lenovo also has plans to launch an Android-based handheld game console, dubbed Lenovo Legion Play, on the market.

A user recently spotted some pictures of a Lenovo-branded handheld game console on GBA Temp after searching for “Lenovo Handheld” on Google. Upon further investigation, it was discovered that Lenovo Germany and Japan have uploaded console images to their MWC 2021 web pages with the Lenovo Legion Play moniker. Hence, this means that the company had plans to launch the device earlier this year. However, it was allegedly canceled for unknown reasons.

However, judging by the pictures, the Lenovo Legion Play looks quite complete and ready for the market. It has a traditional console-like design with the display in the center and the control buttons and joysticks on either side. There are the usual ABXY buttons, the right analog stick and a few control buttons on the right, and a D-pad, the left analog stick on the left.

As described on Lenovo’s web pages, the Legion Play console boasts a 7-inch Full-HD display with 16: 9 aspect ratio and HDR10 support. It also packs a 7,000mAh battery, although there is no processor information or other internal specs. In addition to this, the device also features a USB-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack and a concave rear design for easy grip, as shown in the pictures.

As for the software, Lenovo Legion Play appears to be running an Android-based custom skin. There are icons for Nvidia GeForce Play, Google Play Store and other system apps. We can also see some glyphs for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and signal strength bars in the upper right corner. So, this could mean that the console could have cellular support.

Regarding the availability and price of the device, Lenovo wrote that Lenovo Legion Play is “coming to select markets”. However, the company has yet to make a public announcement or even mock the device anywhere.
