Seeing this, allegedly Lenovo is also working on their own Android-based handheld gaming console, according to the leaks by a forum member on GBATemp, who claims to have found unreleased pictures of the Lenovo’s supposed handheld console, simply by googling it.

The images that he discovered were further linked to Lenovo’s official website which showed nothing at first, however on further inspection of the websites source code it was revealed that the new handheld console will be called Lenovo Legion Play, Legion being the branding for Lenovo’s lineup of gaming Laptops and phones.

Apart from this, the source code also revealed the basic specs of the new console including a 7″ 16:9 FHD bezel-less display, with support for HDR 10; built-in controllers featuring two analog sticks, a D-Pad, X, Y, A, and B buttons, and Shoulder buttons as seen in the images above; dual speakers and vibration motors, paired with a 7,000mAh battery.

However, there’s no word on the processor or other technical detail about the console yet. Still, from looking at the images we can confirm that it will be having a USB type-C and a 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom of the device.

Overall, Lenovo is basically developing a gaming tablet of some sort, that has powerful hardware features and runs a skinned version of Android allowing users to play Android games on it.
