Earlier this month, Logitech G officially announced its partnership with popular Chinese developer Tencent Games to bring a cloud gaming handheld to market later this year, which will support multiple cloud gaming services.
The handset device will support Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce NOW to allow easy access to AAA titles when gamers are away from their console or PC.
While the accessory maker did not reveal any details about the device, a popular and seasoned leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks), who typically reports on smartphones and other devices, tried to share three images of the upcoming console, called “Logitech G Gaming Handheld”.
However, the images in question had to be taken down from the microblogging platform for copyright reasons but not before the leaked details of the device were shared around the internet quickly.

The renders provided by Evan reveal the front and back of the device, showing all of the buttons, the display format, and other information.
Firstly, the device, which is predominantly white in color looks roughly the same size as a Nintendo Switch. It even contains a Switch-like UI (user interface) where one can scroll through apps and games.
Further, the white handheld device includes two joysticks, a D-Pad which is on the left, and A/B/X/Y buttons to the right similar to the Xbox. There are also four buttons placed unevenly at each corner of the display: Logitech, Home, menu, and a context menu button.
Additionally, it has two trigger buttons, much like most modern controllers, a volume rocker, probably a mute switch, as well as a microSD card expansion slot. The back panel of the console sports the Logitech G logo and textured sides for a better grip.
One leaked image shows Google Play Store, Chrome, and YouTube on the Home page indicating that Android apps and games will be supported on the upcoming console from Logitech.
It will also support Xbox Cloud Gaming, Nvidia GeForce Now, and Steam (Remote Play).
Other UI components include user profiles, settings, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, power, and more, as well as a row of five navigation sections that can be found in the top-left corner.
Logitech is yet to announce the detailed functionality and launch date of the upcoming handheld console. Keep watching this space for more updates!
