After comparing Legion Go, we can see that it is more likely to be a very promising product. With a powerful processor, display, and graphics power, this device may give you an immersive gaming experience. Even though the RAM and storage options are still unknown, these are not going to be lower than your expectation. Otherwise, the Legion Go doesn’t stand a chance versus the fierce competition.

Lenovo is going to use the latest Zen4 architecture-based chipset. The latter can make this small portable gaming device more energy efficient compared to the established items in the market. But, the whole thing also may depend on the battery capacity, which is still a mystery.

Lenovo had got enough time to analyze the market, so chances are the latest product will be a decent competitor. The console is surely going to make waves in the handheld gaming market. After all, stiff competition can be a good advantage for the end users.
