Logitech new cloud gaming handheld device launching in October

Logitech has joined the game

Logitech G CLOUD was leaked last month reportedly by GEEK CULTURE. This gaming handheld device that look similar to Nintendo Switch features a 7-inch 1080p IPS multi-touch screen and a 60Hz refresh rate alongside two thumbsticks, a D-Pad, and a button layout consisting of A, B, X and Y on the front. USB-C port with a 3.5mm headphone jack, bluetooth 5.1, stereo speakers and stereo microphones.

This handheld device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G with a 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage that you can expand with a microSD card. On top of that, Logitech G CLOUD is packs in a 12-hour battery life, as well as integration with Google Play Store and cloud gaming services such as NVIDIA GeForce NOW and Xbox Cloud Gaming. You can also download additional apps via Google Play Store, such as remote play apps and video streaming apps.

However, the little downside about this gaming handheld device is that it supports only WiFi 5 reportedly by TechCrunch. Where latency and internet bandwidth plays an important role for cloud gaming.

Though, it is interesting to see Logitech joining the handheld gaming market with a device designed to stream games. Logitech appears to be limiting the Cloud Gaming Handheld Device launch to US and Canada with a price tag of $299 (~RM1366) and currently on sale on Amazon and Logitech's offical website.
