Lenovo Confirms Development Of Next-Generation Legion Go 2 Handheld

The main focus of the Lenovo Innovate 2024 conference in Bangkok, Thailand was on the laptop market, with attendees discussing the future direction of the Lenovo Legion series and other market segments. A notable topic of discussion revolves around the possibility of an updated Legion Go handheld device.

The Legion Go is featured as an advanced gaming handheld, with detachable controllers and a spacious 8.8-inch screen providing 2.5K resolution. It launched several months after the ROG Alley, yet it has carved out a niche in the market, particularly appealing to gamers looking for a larger display, longer battery life, and better flexibility in gaming. Notably, the Legion Go succeeds where the MSI Claw falls short, despite the ROG Ally having nearly identical physical features to the Claw.

Gamers are naturally keen to know if and when Lenovo intends to unveil the next version of its Go handheld. Breaking the silence, the company has officially confirmed that a successor is in development. Clifford Chong, Lenovo's APAC gaming category manager, has confirmed plans for the Legion Go 2.

Clifford's statement did not provide detailed insight into product specifications or its expected release date. However, it is important to consider that Lenovo's timing for product launches is not entirely under their control. ASUS has already announced its plans for the ROG Ally 2, which is expected to feature a Strix Point APU with AMD's Zen5/RDNA3.5 architecture.

Lenovo's failure to unveil a successor to the Legion Go could result in them lagging behind and losing their premium position in the market. It is very important for them to stay competitive and keep pace with the technological advancements and features offered by their counterparts.
