Logitech’s cloud gaming handheld has leaked, will include Google Play access

It was just earlier this month that Logitech announced its partnership with Tencent Games and NVIDIA to create a cloud gaming handheld device. But already we have been treated to its first leak courtesy of Twitter user Evan Blass, who goes by the handle @evleaks.

The contents of the tweet have already been removed following a DMCA complaint by Logitech (thereby all but confirming the leak’s authenticity). This included a set of images showing off the rather Switch-like handheld. The Logitech G Gaming Handheld features a full set of controls: thumbsticks, D-pad, bumpers, triggers, A-B-X-Y face buttons, Home  and Menu buttons, everything you would expect.

The device will run on Android OS, and will feature the Google Play Store as shown in one of the leaked images, which shows the display with Xbox, Steam, Chrome and YouTube app buttons. The handheld will focus on cloud gaming and will support multiple cloud streaming game services including Nvidia’s GeForce Now and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

The Logitech G Gaming Handheld is set to release sometime later this year. No exact release date of price point has been revealed as of the time of this writing.
