Earlier this month, Logitech and Tencent Games announced a new handheld. The Logitech G Gaming Handheld is said to support various cloud gaming services such as Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia’s GeForce Now. The pocket console should also allow access to the Google Play Store.
Alleged press photos of the console
Leaker Evan Blass has the first alleged press photos of the handheld on Twitter
. The design and size are reminiscent of Nintendo’s Switch console. The user interface is also based on the Nintendo hardware. Users can scroll through their apps and games here. One of the leaked images shows app icons for Youtube and Chrome as well as Steam, GeForce Now and Xbox Cloud Gaming. After Blass posted the images on Twitter, Logitech immediately filed a DMCA complaint to have the footage removed. The company thus indirectly confirmed the authenticity of the hardware. The photos can still be found at the IT magazine The Verge.
Gamepad buttons and slot for microSD cards
The white Logitech handheld has two analog sticks, a D-Pad and the Y, B, A and X buttons. The manufacturer also has buttons for home, menu, context menu and a Logitech button on the front.

Two bumper and two trigger buttons are also on board. A mute button and a micro SD card slot can also be seen in the pictures. Support for Google’s Play Store suggests that the hardware can play current Android games natively. So the focus of the handheld isn’t just cloud gaming. Logitech has not yet officially confirmed the leaked details.
