Logitech and Tencent are teaming up to create an Android handheld. The upcoming Logitech G Gaming handheld may have been teased before, but the device just leaked online.
Leaked Logitech G Gaming Pocket PC
Posted online by renowned leaker Evan Blass, we’re now seeing the gaming handheld for the first time. The Logitech G Gaming Handheld was clearly designed after the Nintendo Switch Lite as a thin and light mobile gaming experience.
Via 9to5Google, the upcoming android handheld is no beast. The handheld is powered by a Snapdragon 720G processor and 4 GB of onboard RAM. With low memory and a two-year-old chip, you should expect the best PS2 emulator to run.
Instead, the device is first and foremost designed for cloud gaming. In one image, the user-friendly home screen shows a row of game streaming apps…and YouTube.
As it turns out, the device is positioned as hardware dedicated to streaming. From Xbox Game Pass to Steam Remote Play, that’s the main purpose of this device. Even if it has great gaming controls that can be used elsewhere, the Logitech G Gaming Handheld will be positioned as a streaming device.
How will the simulation be?
While the nature of the actual Android game on this device is important, many people see the system as something purely for emulation. Sure, it can run Genshin on media, but can it run GameCube games?
From its specs, the Logitech G Gaming Handheld should be able to run PS1 and PSP emulators just fine. However, it struggles when it gets into high-end systems like Wii emulation. Also, it may not run Skyline, the best Nintendo Switch emulator.
Still, this does look like an interesting new handheld device running Android. How do you feel about the new device?
