The $349.99 portable gaming device will be available in North America on October 17 and will have access to the Google Play Store, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Nvidia's GeForce Now service. While you can play Android mobile games, the focus is really on cloud gaming, and this portable device is designed to deliver 12 hours or more of battery life.
Logitech's portable gaming device has It is a 1080p touch screen with IPS panel and 16:9 aspect ratio and 60Hz refresh rate. This white portable device includes two analog sticks, a D-pad, and Y, B, A, and X buttons. There are four other buttons in this device, which include Logitech G button, home button, menu and context menu.

Also, this device has a 4 GB LPDDR4X RAM and a 64 GB UFS memory. A USB-C 3.1 port is also intended for charging the device, which will fill the battery in about 2.5 hours. Logitech also supports microSD external memory for its device, but this device does not support 5G technology or even a SIM card, which means that you must be connected to a Wi-Fi nearby to experience games in the cloud.
Logitech with Microsoft and Nvidia have teamed up to integrate Xbox Cloud Gaming and GeForce Now into this handheld device. The user interface of the device, which is similar to the user interface of the switch, allows users to run each of these services separately.
One of the most attractive points about this device is its battery life, which according to promises can keep the battery charged for more than 12 hours. Its light weight is also significant. It is smaller than both the Steam Deck and Nintendo Switch portables, and weighs just 463 grams (1 pound). This means that it weighs a little more than the Switch, which weighs 322 grams, but is much less than the Steam Deck, which weighs 669 grams.
Logitech has also collaborated with Tencent for this portable device, and The expertise of this Chinese company has been used in helping to design the Android launcher. The support of this device for Android means that this device is capable of running some Android games, but still its main purpose and focus is on running video games through cloud technology. This device will be released in a limited way in October this year in the United States and Canada. There is a special opportunity to pre-order this device for $299.99, but the original price will be $349.99. This price is between the price of Nintendo Switch ($299.99) and Steam Deck ($399). Since this device often runs games through cloud technologies, this price might be considered a bit high for it, making it difficult for Logitech to compete. However, it should be considered that due to the use of the same technology, the market may be slightly different.
