The Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld will arrive on October 18

Logitech hosts an event today, during which it is expected to unveil new products for gamers and streamers. One of them can be the enterprise portable device for cloud gaming. A pre-order page for the Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld is live on Amazon Canadaapparently a little earlier than expected (although it is 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. It’s around US$300. Amazon US page for Cloud Gaming Handheld is not yet available. We’ll update this story with US pricing once Logitech announces it.

The page includes some specifications of the device, which align with disclosed details from the end of August. You’ll be able to stream games in 1080p at up to 60 frames per second on the seven-inch touchscreen. The handheld, which appears to be an Android tablet housed inside a control unit, offers haptic feedback, gyroscope controls and remappable buttons. The page suggests the battery will run for up to 12 hours on a single charge.

Because the games run from the cloud, the Cloud Gaming Handheld doesn’t require a ton of processing power. This is probably one of the reasons why Logitech was able to limit the weight to 463g, or just over a pound. For comparison, the Nintendo Switch weighs 0.88 pounds (398g) when the Joy-Cons are connected and the steam bridge weighs approximately 1.5 pounds (669 g).

Logitech and Tencent (who worked with the first on the device) have worked with Microsoft and NVIDIA to provide support for Xbox cloud gaming and GeForce now. You can use the steam link app to play games from your PC remotely. The Xbox app also supports remote play from consoles. Logitech notes that users will be able to download apps from the Google Play Store. So you should be able to access the likes of Google Stadia and Amazon Lunaas well as social media apps and video streaming services such as YouTube and Netflix.

We should get more details on the Cloud Gaming Handheld and the rest of what the company has up its sleeve at the Logi Play event, which starts at noon ET. You can watch the stream on Twitch or below:
