Logitech’s gaming arm Logitech G has unveiled the company’s long-rumored attempt at a handheld console during its inaugural Logi Play event.
Dubbed the “Logitech G CLOUD Gaming Handheld“, the console is a device built for cloud gaming enthusiasts. The portable console comes with several features, which allows players to enjoy various titles from gaming libraries of both consoles and PC.
When it comes to its features, the Logitech G CLOUD Gaming Handheld has a 7-inch full 1080p HD touchscreen, which has a 60Hz refresh rate. The makers have also promised 12+ hours of battery life for a device, which weighs around 460g.
Images of the console were leaked a few weeks ago, and like the renders showcased, the Logitech console includes a D-Pad, dual thumbsticks, and an A-B-X-Y button layout.
Regarding its specs, the console is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor. It has 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB of internal storage, with a microSD card slot as well. The 12+ hours of battery life is largely due to its massive 6,000mAh battery.
Unlike the Steam Deck, Logitech has focused on providing the best cloud gaming experience on the go. To do so, the company has partnered with Xbox and NVIDIA for players to gain access to all of their favorite console and PC games through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and GeForce NOW, respectively.
The console releases on October 17 in North America, and it will cost $349. However, interested users can currently pre-order it for $299 for a limited time.
Other than the Logitech G CLOUD Gaming Handheld console, the company also announced other products like the Logitech G Pro Racing Wheel and Pedals, Logitech G Fits earbuds, and the Logitech G Astro A30 Wireless Gaming Headset.
