For additional input options, the controllers include an integrated trackpad, a D-pad, an angled mouse wheel, and 10 mappable buttons for customization of in-game actions. The device also includes RGB lighting on the power button and around the joysticks, which can be customized according to user preferences. The power button’s lighting changes based on the operation fan mode.

The Legion Go features an 8.8-inch QHD touchscreen display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600, offering a 97 percent DCI-P3 color space and a peak brightness of 500 nits. The display supports a 144Hz refresh rate, ensuring smooth and vivid visuals during gameplay. The device is powered by a 49.2Wh battery, promising substantial playtime, and includes a microSD slot for expandable storage up to 2TB.

Priced starting at Rs 89,990, the Lenovo Legion Go will be available for purchase from July 1 on Lenovo’s official website, e-commerce platform Flipkart, and Lenovo exclusive stores. Lenovo is also offering a screen protector at no additional cost and providing one-year accidental damage protection for the device.
