Logitech announces G CLOUD handheld for mobile streaming: All specs and info

  • Logitech has revealed the new G CLOUD handheld, which was made in partnership with NVIDIA and Microsoft. 
  • Services like Amazon Luna, Google Stadia, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Nvidia GeForce NOW can easily be accessed from included tiles on the interface. 
  • It supports Android and offers both Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. 
  • The G CLOUD launches in October 2022 with an MSRP of $349 USD. 

These days, there are hundreds if not thousands of mobile gaming controllers on the market, like the Razer Kishi V2 or Backbone One. Each one is vying for the coveted position of the best gaming choice. Today, Logitech changes the scene by revealing the G CLOUD handheld, which boasts the usual joysticks and buttons, a 7-inch IPS display, and also offers integration with Xbox Game Pass (xCloud), Google Play Store, Nvidia GeForce NOW, Steam Link, and more through tiles on the system’s interface. 

Focused as a handheld gaming device, the design looks very similar to the Switch Lite, Nintendo’s handheld-only version of the Switch that doesn’t offer removable Joy-Con controllers. However, the dimensions show that Logitech’s upcoming system will be slightly larger than Nintendo’s largest current-gen console, the Switch OLED.

The Logitech G CLOUD handheld is slated to launch in the U.S. and Canada sometime in October with an MSRP of $349 USD. During a briefing, which iMore attended, it was explained that this handheld should find its way on many major retailer shelves and eventually launch globally.
