Lenovo develops a handheld Android gaming console called Legion Play

Lenovo is apparently aiming on entering the handheld gaming console market with its own offering. A new leak has revealed the Legion Play that is an Android based handheld gaming console.

According to an AndroidAuthority report, the images of the upcoming Android gaming console was spotted on GBA Temp by a user, who found that the images were linked to the Chinese tech giant’s own website which suggested the Legion Play branding. The report further adds that the images were uploaded by the company’s German and Japan unit’s MWC 2021 webpages. In other words, the brand was initially considering on launching this device earlier this year but its plans changed due to unknown reasons.

Looking at the images, the Legion Play is a handheld gaming console that runs Android with what appears to be a custom launcher. We can even see icons for NVIDIA GeForce Now, the Play Store, along with several other Google applications. Apart from this, we can see  that it sports a USB Type C port, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, dual analog sticks, four face buttons, a D pad, and even shoulder buttons.

Notably, the website also had a description for the product which stated that “Designed for AAA gaming, the Lenovo Legion Play is the first Android cloud gaming console. The console lets users play hundreds of cloud games, stream their game library, or play mobile games. It features a 7 inch 16:9 FHD bezel less display, HDR 10, built in controllers, dual speakers, dual vibration, and 7,000mAh battery to provide the best gaming experience. Our developer program is open to all game developers. Coming soon in select markets.” As of right now, it is unclear when the company will launch the product, so stay tuned for more updates.
