As far as tablets go, this one is powerful, thanks to its Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4nm processor, 12Gb of LPDDR5X memory, 256GB of onboard storage, and 144 Hz QHD+ Lenovo PureSight display. Unlike the Lenovo Legion Go, a Windows 11 gaming handheld, the Legion Tab is designed to play Android-compatible games. Plus, cloud-based gaming with Xbox Game Pass and GeForce NOW.

Other notable features of the Lenovo Legion Tab are its support for USB Type-C display output (DisplayPort 1.4) so you can connect the device to an external display, the large 6550mAh battery for long gaming sessions, and the integrated haptics.

And then there's the vapor chamber cooling dubbed Legion ColdFront, which offers three performance modes - Beast, Balanced, and Energy Saving - so gamers can choose to prioritize performance or battery life.

The only real omission is the lack of a kickstand (as found on the Nintendo Switch) to connect a traditional Bluetooth controller and play with the Lenovo Legion Tab propped up on a table or surface. Still, the Lenovo Legion Tab is compatible with all Lenovo Legion displays and peripherals and can sync with a Legion Laptop to share content - so it's versatile.

Here are the full specs for the Lenovo Legion Tab. For an in-depth look at the company's dedicated Windows-based PC gaming handheld, check out our full review of the Lenovo Legion Go here.
