The Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld arrives October 18

Logitech host an event today, which is expected to reveal some new products for gamers and streamers. One of these may be the company’s handheld cloud gaming device. A pre-order page for the Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld is live on Amazon Canada, seemingly ahead of schedule (though it’s listed as out of stock at the time of writing).

According to the list, which was: spotted by Lbabinz on Twitter, the device will arrive on October 18 and will cost $400 CAD. That’s about $300 USD. The Amazon US page for the Cloud Gaming Handheld is not yet live. We will update this story with US pricing as soon as Logitech announces it.

The page lists some specs for the device, which tie in with leaked details from late August. You can stream games in 1080p with a maximum of 60 frames per second on the 7-inch touchscreen. The handheld, which appears to be an Android tablet in a controller unit, offers haptic feedback, gyroscope control and reassignable buttons. The page suggests that the battery lasts up to 12 hours on a single charge.

Since games run from the cloud, the Cloud Gaming Handheld does not require a lot of computing power. That’s likely why Logitech has been able to limit the weight to 463g, or just over a pound. In comparison, the Nintendo Switch weighs 0.88 pounds (398 g) with the Joy-Cons attached, and the Steam Deck weighs about 1.5 pounds (669 g).

Logitech and Tencent (who worked with the former on the device) teamed up with Microsoft and NVIDIA to ensure support for Xbox Cloud Gaming and GeForce Now. You can use the Steam Link app to play games remotely from your PC. The Xbox app also supports remote play from consoles. Logitech notes that users can download apps from the Google Play Store. So you should have access to Google Stadia and Amazon Luna, as well as social media apps and streaming video services like YouTube and Netflix.

We should get a little more detail on the Cloud Gaming Handheld and the rest of what the company has in store during the Logi Play event, which kicks off at 12 noon ET. You can watch the stream on Twitch or below:
