The handheld gaming space is heating up because Lenovo is rumoured to be launching a new handheld gaming device on 1st September at IFA 2023 to take on the likes of Valve's Steam Deck and ASUS' ROG Ally.

It's called the Legion Go and it will run Windows 11 and be powered by an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor. 

What's noteworthy is the size of the screen. According to the report, the Legion Go will have a massive 8.8-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels and a high refresh rate of 144Hz.

For comparison, the Steam Deck and ROG Ally both have 7-inch displays with considerably lower resolutions.

The AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor will be paired with 16GB of LPDDR5X memory, and users will be able to spec their Legion Gos with up to 1TB of storage.

Though the ROG Ally is also powered by a Ryzen Z1 processor, Lenovo's Legion Go will have the advantage of faster memory.

Retail availability of the Legion Go is said to start sometime in October with prices starting at US$799 (~S$1,082). That's slightly higher than the ROG Ally, but understandable given its larger display and better specs.
