In this article, we will be discussing the Lenovo Legion Go and its features, specifications, availability, and expected price in Nepal.

Lenovo Legion Go Overview:

Design and Display: Inspired by the Nintendo Switch

The Lenovo Legion Go introduces an 8.8-inch QHD+ IPS LCD panel. The panel supports a 144Hz refresh rate, 500 nits of peak brightness, and a 97% DCI-P3 color gamut. Featuring a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 10-point touch screen, this “Lenovo PureSight Gaming Display” delivers intuitive controls. And it’s pretty easy to see that Lenovo was inspired by Nintendo Switch‘s design here.

In terms of physical characteristics, the Lenovo Legion Go stands out due to its bulkier and heavier build compared to modern handhelds, weighing 854 grams with the controller. Or 640 grams without. It features extra keys on the back and side, a scroll wheel, two mouse buttons, and an “FPS” button. The Legion Go is available in the Shadow Black color option.
