Earlier this month, Logitech announced a partnership with Tencent Games for developing a handheld cloud gaming device. It is referred to as Logitech G Gaming Handheld but no other details were shared. However, well-known tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) has shared product renders of the gaming device on his Twitter account.
The leaked renders of the Logitech G Gaming Handheld show it with a form factor similar to the Nintendo Switch. Even the user interface of the device seems to be inspired by Switch's UI. One can see logos of Steam, Xbox, and NVIDIA which is expected as the device will offer cloud gaming. There is Google Play Store, YouTube, and Google Chrome suggesting it may have Android apps as well.
The device has two joysticks, one D-Pad, and four buttons X, Y, A, and B. It has a Yellow-colored button with the Logitech logo, a home button, a menu button, and a context button. The display size is unknown but it seems to be big enough for entertaining gaming sessions. It also seems to have a mute button and a microSD card slot.
It should be noted that these leaked images have been taken down by Twitter in response to a DCMA claim filed by the copyright owner. It seems like the owner is Logitech and is not hard to guess why it decided to take those images down. This is pretty much what we know about the Logitech G Gaming Handheld device so far. It is expected to get official later this year and we may see some more details meanwhile.
