Images of the Logitech G Gaming Handheld, touted by Logitech and Tencent, have surfaced.
Evan Blass this evening shared a trio of images of the “Logitech G Gaming Handheld,” which was the name shared at the beginning of August on an official teaser page. This brand makes PC gaming keyboards and mouse. “Cloud gaming portable” arriving “later this year,” says preview.
The Nintendo Switch-like device is white. Black thumb sticks flank the screen, which has large bezels, and a D-Pad is to the left. Home is one of four buttons at the screen’s corners. The top black border features trigger buttons, a volume rocker, and what appears like a memory card slot.
The Switch-like UI has Google Play, Xbox Cloud Gaming, Nvidia GeForce Now, and Steam (Remote Play). Five navigation areas are at the top-left corner, while the clock, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and battery are at the other end.
The tablet-sized screen has icons for the Google Play Store, Xbox applications, Geforce Now, Steam, Chrome, and YouTube. Those expecting a Windows or Linux handheld may get sad.
Furthermore, in terms of controls, the left side is occupied by an analog stick, D-pad, a yellow button, and a button with an ellipsis icon. Meanwhile, the right side of the Logitech G Gaming Handheld consists of a second analog stick, four face buttons, a home button, and a menu button.
One of Blass’s pictures (R) shows the device’s back, with four shoulder buttons, a volume rocker, and a slider switch. However we can also see a fingerprint scanner or card slot on the top edge, however the I/O positioning varies significantly between shots.
Logitech could debut the device at IFA 2022, which begins September 2. Moreover those who prefer a dedicated Android handheld over a smartphone-game controller might consider this item.
