More leaks have emerged online of Logitech's first gaming handheld. Revealed as the Logitech G Cloud, the device will rely on an older mid-range chipset with a large battery and a 1080p display, among other features.

Yesterday, Evan Blass leaked images of Logitech's first gaming handheld, a device that it has already confirmed has been produced in collaboration with Tencent. Subsequently, Logitech issued a DMCA strike against Evan Blass, effectively confirming the accuracy of his leak. As a result, Kuba Wojciechowski did some more digging and discovered considerably more details than Blass revealed with his initial leak.

Firstly, Logitech has called the device 'G Cloud', which also provides a hint at the device's focus. So far, the Logitech G Cloud has been spotted in various forms on Geekbench, the Google Play Console, the FCC and the USPTO. From these listings, Wojciechowski has determined that the Logitech G Cloud has a 6,000 mAh battery paired with what could be a 6.9-inch display operating at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels with a 320 PPI pixel density.

Additionally, the Logitech G Cloud relies on WiFi 5, 4 GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 720G, a mid-range chipset that Qualcomm released in 2019 and which we have already reviewed in the Redmi Note 9 Pro, among other smartphones. Seemingly, the Snapdragon 720G will be powerful enough to run cloud-based games, but do not expect even AYN Odin Pro performance levels from it. Incidentally, it looks as if Logitech has not included an active cooling solution either, which is a shame. MicroSD card expansion could be onboard though, which could prove handy.

A release date is unknown at this point, although we doubt Logitech is far away from announcing the G Cloud. Also, the Logitech G Cloud will launch with Android 11, rather than a newer version of Android. While the device may eventually receive Android 12, Wojciechowski believes that Android 13 is 'out of the question'. Pricing is unclear too, but the inclusion of a Snapdragon 720G should keep costs down.
