Logitech is hosting an event today, during which it's revealing some new products for gamers and streamers. Details on one of those leaked in advance as a preorder page for the Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld went live on Amazon Canada a bit early. The company has now officially unveiled the device.
According to the listing, which was spotted by Lbabinz on Twitter, the Cloud Gaming Handheld will arrive on October 18th and cost $400 CAD. Logitech's press materials, on the other hand, say the product will ship next month. The system will also be available from Amazon in the US, where it costs $350 USD, or $300 if you preorder. That's fairly pricey for a dedicated cloud gaming handheld, especially considering that a Nintendo Switch OLED is the same price (and can be jailbroken to run cloud gaming services).
The screen's pretty basic: a 1080p, 7-inch IPS display with a 60Hz refresh rate and 450 nits brightness. It runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G with 4GB memory -- Android inside. It has stereo speakers with an amp, a stereo noise-canceling mic and both 3.5mm and USB-C audio output (no video), as well as Bluetooth 5.1. You can connect via Wi-Fi 5 only -- no cell support, which is disappointing.
Built-in storage is 64GB, but it's not clear what can get installed or saved locally; it does have a slot for a microSD/TF card. It also professes "linear haptics" for the controls, but it's not clear what that means. The company promises up to 12-and-a-half hours of play time. It weighs about a pound (463 grams), and its dimensions lie somewhere between the Steam Deck and Nintendo Switch.
