Lenovo Confirms Development Of Next-Generation Legion Go 2 Handheld

The main emphasis of the Lenovo Innovate 2024 conference in Bangkok, Thailand, was on the laptop market, with attendees also engaging in discussions regarding the future direction of the Lenovo Legion series and other market segments. One notable topic of discussion revolved around the possibility of an updated Legion Go handheld device.

The Legion Go stands out as a top-tier gaming handheld, boasting detachable controllers and a spacious 8.8-inch screen delivering a crisp 2.5K resolution. Its launch followed that of the ROG Ally by several months, yet it has carved a niche in the market, particularly appealing to gamers seeking larger displays, prolonged battery longevity, and enhanced flexibility in gaming. Notably, the Legion Go has succeeded where the MSI Claw fell short, despite Claw’s nearly identical physical attributes to the ROG Ally.


Gamers naturally have a keen interest in knowing if and when Lenovo intends to unveil a next-version to their 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 affirmed the plans for the Legion Go 2.

Clifford’s statement didn’t provide detailed insights into the product’s specifications or its anticipated release date. Nevertheless, it’s important to consider that Lenovo’s timing for the product launch might not be entirely under their control. ASUS has already announced their plans for the ROG Ally 2, expected to incorporate the Strix Point APU with AMD’s Zen5/RDNA3.5 architectures.


Failure by Lenovo to unveil a successor to the Legion Go could result in them lagging behind and forfeiting their premium position in the market. It’s crucial for them to stay competitive and stay aligned with the technological advancements and features offered by their counterparts.
