Logitech is a world-renowned brand of Swiss-American origin and has earned a lot of fame manufacturing various hardware and input devices for PCs and other technological devices. With the partnership of American industry tycoon Microsoft, Logitech, has brought forward its newest device of G Cloud Gaming Handheld, which is a purpose-built handheld gaming device. It supports cloud streaming from Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and NVIDIA GeForce NOW.
G Cloud Gaming Handheld: Specifications
The G Cloud Gaming handheld well and truly punches beyond expectations owing to its specifications. It has a full HD 1920×1080 screen which is a resolution of 16:9. The IPS screen can operate around 60 Hz which checks various boxes such as being able to stream games in high quality without compromising the in-game elements, such as frames per second or the general graphics settings. It is also equipped with a Snapdragon 720G processor, which further cements the position of the G Cloud Gaming Handheld as a mode of premium gaming experience.
The device is also compatible with USB-C headphones, and 5.1 Bluetooth and comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack along with stereo speakers, and stereo mics with an in-built echo cancellation feature.
G Cloud Gaming Handheld release date
The Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld is scheduled to be available for shipping from the 18th of October, 2022 onwards. Initially, the product will be exclusively available to the North American countries of the United States and Canada along with Puerto Rico. Besides the very limited access to the device, most people are being put-off the product, because of its sky-high price.
Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld price and where to buy
The G Cloud Gaming Handheld is currently priced at $350, and $300 if the sale deduction is taken into account. In the following weeks up to the release of the handheld device, Logitech should have its hands full, making presentations about why the device is worth it at its price point and what sets it apart from its peers. The device is available to be bought from Microsoft Store.
Although a great tool that comes with many pros such as 1080p streaming without the device gameplay getting affected and more, the price point has indeed made many people lose their appeal for the G Cloud Gaming Handheld, and understandably so. Therefore, it is up to the marketing department of Logitech to try and convince people otherwise, which will be pivotal for the future of this new handheld device.
