Lenovo Allegedly Developing Augmented Reality Glasses for Its Portable Gaming Console


Lenovo is rumored to unveil a new set of augmented reality (AR) glasses designed for gaming in conjunction with its upcoming handheld gaming console named ‘Legion Go’. The anticipated Legion Go gaming device is expected to feature Windows 11 as its operating system and embrace a design reminiscent of the Nintendo Switch, complete with detachable joy-con-style controllers.

Sources, deemed credible, as cited in a recent WindowsReport article, indicate that Lenovo is diligently developing an array of fresh products, including a pair of AR glasses tailor-made for immersive gaming experiences.

Although details regarding this product remain speculative, whispers within the tech community hint at the possibility of a co-launch with the Legion Go at the IFA 2023 event. It is suggested that these AR glasses could be designed to accommodate both everyday tasks and prolonged gaming sessions, thanks to their compact and comfortable build. Initial glimpses of the glasses suggest a USB-C port at their base, potentially indicating an absence of an integrated battery. Notably, Lenovo is no stranger to the AR landscape, having showcased the enterprise-focused ThinkReality A3 smart AR glasses, powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR1 platform, earlier in the year at MWC 2023.

Shifting the spotlight to the handheld gaming domain, the Legion Go is poised to be fueled by AMD’s new Pheonix APUs, drawing from the RDNA3 architecture, and poised to perform on par with the Ryzen Z1 and Ryzen Z1 Extreme chipsets. Noteworthy specs encompass an 8-inch Full HD display, a USB-C port, a microSD card slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and stereo speakers. Recent concept images illuminate a device that mirrors the ROG Ally and Steam Deck aesthetics with attached controllers. Detached, the Legion Go transforms into what appears akin to a Windows tablet with an integrated kickstand. Compared to the Nintendo Switch, it boasts full-sized triggers and shoulder buttons, complemented by programmable buttons for enhanced functionality.

Pricing for Lenovo’s forthcoming handheld gaming innovation remains shrouded in uncertainty. However, insiders speculate that it could align with the cost of the recently launched ROG Ally.
