Logitech’s Dedicated Cloud Gaming Handheld Will Launch This October

Weeks after images leaked, Logitech officially unveiled its handheld device dedicated to cloud gaming.

The Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld features a 7-inch IPS multi-touch screen with a 60Hz refresh rate and a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Just as the leaked images suggested, the front of the device features two thumbsticks, a D-Pad, and a button layout consisting of A. B, X, and Y.

The device’s rear shows a USB-C port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack, but the handheld also supports Bluetooth, too.

The Logitech G Cloud Gaming handheld uses the Android 11 operating system and comes with the Google Play Store preinstalled on the device. Additional specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor, a 6,000mAh battery, and a microSD card slot that you can use to expand the device’s storage.

While the handheld is being marketed as the first dedicated Cloud Gaming Handheld, capable of playing Xbox Cloud Gaming and GeForce Now, Logitech confirmed that you can download additional apps via the Google Play Store, such as remote play apps and video streaming apps.

Although if you are buying this as a device dedicated to playing Cloud Gaming services, there are plenty to choose from beyond just Xbox Cloud Gaming and GeForce Now. Of course, Xbox Cloud Gaming is among one of the more popular cloud gaming services right now with access to titles such as Halo: Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, and Deathloop, which recently arrived on Xbox Series X/S after being a PS5 exclusive for one year.

Logitech says the device will begin shipping in North America next month. It retails for $349, but is currently available on Amazon for $299.99.
