Logitech and Tencent have announced that they are working on a handheld cloud gaming device. They combine the hardware knowledge of Logitech G with the software skills of Tencent. According to an landing page (where you can enter your email address to receive updates), the device is tentatively referred to as the Logitech G Gaming Handheld.
The system is set to hit the market later this year and it will “support multiple cloud gaming services.” logitech said:. Tencent and Logitech work with the Xbox Cloud Gaming and GeForce Now teams at Microsoft and NVIDIA respectively, so expect the handheld to support at least both platforms.
Whether the device actually goes on sale as planned remains to be seen, given the ongoing supply chain crisis that makes manufacturing difficult for just about any electronics company. However, many cloud gaming services can be accessed through web apps on phones, so the device probably won’t require a lot of processing power. It probably doesn’t need to be as powerful as, say, the Steam Deck. Using lower-power components that aren’t super hard to come by can make it easier for Logitech and Tencent to actually build the handheld. In any case, we should learn more about the device in the coming months.
