Logitech Cloud Gaming Handheld Leaked

Touted in a collaboration with Tencent, Logitech’s cloud gaming handheld will apparently feature support for Android apps.

Relatively recently Logitech shared that it was collaborating with Tencent to create a cloud-based handheld gaming device that could launch in late 2022. That leaves little time for a reveal and launch, but it looks like we may get an idea of ​​what coming up. A recent leak showed off the device. In addition, it also revealed the supposed compatibility with Google Play, which means that the device could download and operate Android applications.

Leaks of Logitech’s upcoming cloud gaming device were originally shared in leaks on Twitter by Evan Blass. The original post contained three images of the unnamed Logitech/Tencent device, including a look at its user interface and some of the options it would present for gameplay. Xbox Cloud Gaming was there, which makes sense, as was NVIDIA GeForce Now and Steam. What was most interesting was the addition of Google Play, which is not a streaming service or cloud-based service like the others. It appears that users will be able to download Android apps to the device and play them.

Adding validity to what was leaked is a Logitech takedown. The leaked images in Evan Blass’ original post were removed due to a copyright strike, which usually means something legit was shown.

It was at the beginning of August that Tencent and Logitech announced a partnership to develop and launch this portable cloud gaming device. Although we haven’t seen much, Logitech also insisted that it could be available before the end of 2022, which means that it is probably almost finished. Still, we hadn’t seen an official name or taken a look at the device until these leaks.

Given the short amount of time in which Logitech intends to release its cloud gaming laptop and its copyright strike against leaked images, it seems likely that we’ll be seeing what Logitech and Tencent release later this year. . While we await more details and a proper reveal, stay tuned here on Shacknews.
