Logitech G Cloud gaming handheld revealed with 7″ 1080p display, 12+ hours of battery life

Have you seen the prices for these Nvidia RTX 40 cards? You might want to switch to cloud gaming for a while, and Logitech G has just the thing for you: an Android-powered handheld that’s been designed for just that task.

The Logitech G Cloud gaming handheld is listed at CAD 400, it will be released on October 18. It was also spotted in an Amazon US listing with a price tag of $350, though pre-orders have a lower price tag of $300. You can also catch one from Logitech G site.

Let’s take a closer look at the device itself. As you can see from the images, it’s intended for use with Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now for cloud streaming, as well as the Xbox app and Steam Link for local streaming from your console and PC. You can also download other streaming services, anything that works on Android (eg Google Stadia and Amazon Luna).

The Google Play Store is on board, but native gaming really isn’t the G Cloud’s forte – it’s powered by a Snapdragon 720G, which is nice and efficient, but isn’t made for AAA gaming. If you want to try native gaming, be aware that there is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which may be limited for more advanced games. You can, however, expand the storage with a microSD card.

Efficiency is key, however, this handheld promises over 12 hours of battery life (23.1 Wh battery). Recharging is done in 2h30 via USB-C. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.1 and stereo speakers, so audio can be handled the way you want.

There’s a 7-inch LCD screen on board, a crisp 1080p panel with 450 nits of brightness, multi-touch support and a 60Hz refresh rate. cloud isn’t well suited for HRR gaming, but GeForce Now already supports 120fps streaming, for example. Even so, the 1080p resolution may be the best thing about this handheld as both the Switch and the Steam Deck have 720p-class 60Hz displays (more on them in a moment).

The handheld relies on Wi-Fi for its Internet connectivity. The 720G supports Wi-Fi 5 (ac), but not 6 (ax). Also, there’s no 4G or 5G connectivity, you have to be within Wi-Fi range (the 720G only supports 4G, anyway).
