Lenovo Legion Go: AR smart glasses accessory for ASUS ROG Ally rival revealed as Legion Smart Glasses
Lenovo is preparing to release an ASUS ROG Ally competitor dubbed the Legion Go, the full specifications of which we have covered separately. While the Legion Go will rely on the same AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme as the ASUS ROG Ally, Lenovo hopes to distinguish its forthcoming gaming handheld in a few areas. On the one hand, the Legion Go will have a built-in kickstand and detachable controllers, much like the Nintendo Switch or ONEXPLAYER 2.
Additionally, the Legion Go will support the Legion Smart Glasses, a complimentary pair of augmented reality (AR) glasses. Specifications for the latter have not surfaced yet, but Evan Blass has published a marketing image showing the Legion Smart Glasses from all sides. Meanwhile, Windows Report uploaded a short YouTube video that showcased the glasses, although it has since taken this down.
As the image above shows, the Legion Smart Glasses will connect to the Legion Go by a short USB Type-C cable. Despite the image above suggests that you would connect the Legion Smart Glasses via a top-mounted USB Type-C port, there is also a second bottom-mounted USB Type-C port that would allow you to charge both while gaming in AR. However, we cannot make out this port in any other leaked images. Also, it remains to be seen whether the Ryzen Z1 Extreme is powerful enough to handle the Legion Smart Glasses without compromising on performance.
