Logitech G Gaming Handheld Leaks with Google Play

On early this monthLogitech and Tencent teased the Logitech G Gaming Handheld, and images of the device have now leaked.

Evan Blass shared tonight trio of images of “Logitech G Gaming Handheld,” which was the name shared in early August at a official teaser page. The brand is primarily known for PC gaming peripherals, such as keyboards and mice. This “cloud gaming handheld” is coming “later this year,” according to that early preview.

With a Nintendo Switch-esque form factor, this device is predominantly white. There’s a black thumbstick flanking the screen, which has a sizeable bezel, while the D-Pad is on the left and X/Y/A/B on the right. There are also four buttons roughly placed in each corner of the screen, including Home. The top black edge has a trigger button, volume rocker, and possibly a mute switch (whether that’s for the microphone or the sound isn’t clear), as well as what looks like a memory card slot.

The UI is also Switch-like, and clearly shows the Google Play Store, followed by Xbox Cloud Gaming, Nvidia GeForce Now, and Steam (Remote Play). Other UI elements include a row of five navigation sections in the top left corner, while time, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and battery are at the other end.

We also saw cards for Chrome and YouTube, which pretty much guarantees that the Logitech G Gaming Handheld will be supported by Android. Meanwhile, it can run Qualcomm Snapdragon G3x The “custom-built” Gen 1 Android game chip from last December that first debuted on the Razor developer kit.
