Logitech’s G Cloud Gaming Handheld Is an Android-Powered Switch Competitor

Logitech’s gaming line has delivered an abundance of desktop accessories, but its upcoming handheld console provides a glimpse into the future of the already-transcendent medium. The G Cloud Gaming Handheld is compatible with Google Play Store, Nvidia’s GeForce Now, and, of course, Xbox Cloud Gaming.

With a refined weight of a single pound, this device is built for taking on the go. It boasts a crisp, seven-inch 1080p touchscreen with a 16:9 aspect ratio and 60Hz refresh rate, rivaling the standard Nintendo Switch display’s portable resolution of 720p. Additionally, it boasts 12 hours of battery life, so your cloud gaming experience is accounted for with this long-lasting gadget.

The Android-powered device utilizes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor to its advantage, as the high-tech software can run up to 2.3GHz, paving the way for a premium portable experience. Unlike the Switch, the G Cloud Gaming Handheld comes equipped with an additional microSD card to expand your storage space when needed. Lastly, it features a pair of analog thumbsticks, a traditional D-pad, and a typical array of ABXY buttons.

If you’ve been looking to get in on the world of cloud gaming, now is the best time to do so, and Logitech is here to tailor the experience to your liking. The tech brand’s G Cloud Gaming Handheld is available to pre-order for $350 but will ship out beginning October 18.

Purchase: $350
