Earlier today, three leaked photos of Sony’s upcoming handheld device, codenamed Project Q, were shared on IMGUR and subsequently posted on Reddit.
These images offer a glimpse into the inner workings of the handheld console when the screen is removed. The most significant detail revealed is that Project Q appears to be running on the Android operating system.
This was a major point of speculation among users following the announcement at the recent PlayStation Showcase, which followed months of rumors.
Sony’s console is being promoted as a device focused on Remote Play streaming from a PlayStation 5 console. Here is the official description:
Project Q is a dedicated device launching later this year that allows you to play any compatible game installed on your PS5 console using Remote Play over Wi-Fi. With its vibrant 8-inch LCD screen capable of up to 1080p resolution at 60fps, the device delivers sharp visuals and smooth gameplay streamed from your PS5 when you’re away from your TV.
However, if Project Q does indeed run on Android (albeit with modifications) instead of a custom OS like the PlayStation Vita, it is likely that modders will find a way to enable streaming applications such as GeForce NOW, Shadow, Boosteroid, Amazon Luna, and Xbox Cloud. If that proves to be the case, the handheld console could be considered a viable alternative to devices like the Logitech G Cloud or the Abxylute.
However, insider Tom Henderson reports that Sony’s upcoming handheld will have subpar battery life, lasting only around three to four hours. In comparison, the Logitech G Cloud boasts over twelve hours of battery life, and the Abxylute can provide over eight hours of gameplay.
One advantage of Project Q is that it comes with a fully-featured DualSense wireless controller, complete with Adaptive Triggers and Haptic Feedback. However, this feature will only be useful when streaming PS5 games. While some PC games do support the DualSense’s Adaptive Triggers and Haptic Feedback, streaming currently does not.
Project Q does not have a specific launch window yet, but it is expected to launch around the same time as another PlayStation accessory: Sony’s first-ever wireless earbuds with their gaming brand. The manufacturer claims that these earbuds will provide lossless audio with low latency for a high-quality audio experience on both PlayStation 5 and PC.
