The $350 Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld will arrive in October | Engadget

Logitech hosts Today’s eventDuring which it revealed some new products for players and banners. Details of one of those previously leaked as a pre-order page for the Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld were posted on Amazon Canada early on. The company has now officially revealed the device.

According to the list that was Spotted by Lbabinz On Twitter, Cloud Gaming Handheld will arrive on October 18 at a cost of CAD400. On the other hand, Logitech press material says that the product will ship next month. The system will also be available from Amazon in the US, where it costs $350, or $300 if you pre-order. That’s a bit pricey for mobile dedicated cloud gaming, especially considering the Nintendo Switch OLED is the same price (and can be jailbroken to run cloud gaming services).

Specs and design are consistent with leaked details from late August. You will be able to stream games in 1080p resolution at up to 60 frames per second on the 7-inch 450nit touch screen. The mobile, a custom Android tablet housed inside a controller, offers haptic feedback, gyroscope controls, and resettable buttons. It has the inputs you’d expect, including a D-pad, face buttons, dual thumbsticks, bumpers, and triggers, along with option buttons on either side, a G button, and a home button.

Since you’ll be streaming games most of the time, Cloud Gaming Handheld doesn’t require a great deal of processing power. This is one possible reason why Logitech was able to limit the weight to 463 grams, or just over a pound. For comparison, the Nintendo Switch weighs 0.88 pounds (398 grams) when the Joy-Cons are connected and the Steam Deck weighs about 1.5 pounds (669 grams).

The device is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor. It has 4 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64 GB of storage, which can be expanded through a microSD slot. Logitech claims that the battery will last up to 12 hours on a single charge. In the event of a power outage, it should be fully recharged in approximately 2.5 hours through a USB-C cable.

There are stereo speakers and a stereo microphone that provides echo and noise cancellation. In addition, the device has support for Bluetooth 5.1 and USB-C, as well as, fortunately, a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Logitech and Tencent (who built the device together) have teamed up with Microsoft and NVIDIA to ensure there’s native support for Xbox Cloud Gaming and GeForce Now. You’ll be able to use the Steam Link app to play games from your PC remotely, while the Xbox app supports remote play from consoles. Logitech notes that users will be able to download apps from the Google Play Store. So, you should be able to access the likes of Google Stadia and Amazon Luna, as well as social media apps, Android games, and video streaming services like YouTube and Netflix (you can use the device in tablet mode).
