One other space the place the Legion Go seeks to demolish the competitors is the show, assuming the data is correct. The leak mentions an 8.8-inch QHD+ (2560 x 1600 pixels) display on the gadget that helps as much as 144 Hz refresh fee and presents as much as 500 nits of peak brightness. The Steam Deck presents a 7-inch HD (1200 x 800 pixels) show locked at 60 Hz and maximizes at 400 nits, whereas the Asus ROG Ally serves a 7-inch full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) that solely goes as much as 120 Hz refresh fee.
The Nintendo Change additionally retains the display measurement and backbone capped at 7 inches and HD decision. Whereas a much bigger show is all the time welcome on the subject of having fun with video games on a handheld gadget, it additionally takes its personal candy toll on the battery life, particularly when it is extra pixel-dense and runs at the next refresh fee. The Legion Go’s quick charging perk seems to be a compensatory measure right here.
However it seems that Lenovo will cost fairly a lavish premium for all these upgrades. The leak predicts a $799 asking value for the Legion Go’s base 256 GB storage variant. That is double the $399 sticker value for the Steam Deck and $100 greater than what Asus asks for the ROG Ally. Lenovo will individually promote the Legion Glasses for $499, and a brand new pair of RGB-toting Legion E510 7.1 in-ear headphones for round $50. Lenovo’s Legion Go will reportedly be showcased on September 1 and can go on sale in October.
