Several images of Sony’s handheld device codenamed “Project Q” have been leaked, showing the device running Android. The leaked video also reveals that the handheld will be touchscreen.

The language in the video is in Chinese, where we can see Project Q running on Android OS. One image also gives a glimpse of the inside of this device. The official information shows that Project Q is focused on remote play streaming from a PlayStation 5. So if the handheld runs on Android, chances are that modders will be able to stream applications like Xbox Cloud, GeForce NOW, Amazon Luna, etc.
If that turns out to be the case, then Project Q might become a better alternative to Logitech G Cloud. Even so, it won’t be better overall since Tom Henderson previously revealed that Project Q will have 3-4 hours of battery life. It is underwhelming compared to Logitech G Cloud’s 12+ hours of battery life. One of the main reasons people might go for Project Q will probably be its DualSense features.
These images have been spreading like wildfire, with people either disappointed or happy with how comfortable it looks. One NeoGaf user stated, “They need to pay me to at least consider using this thing.” Another Twitter user remarked, “This actually is a great idea, and I bet it feels great to hold and play for long sessions.”
Overall, Project Q seems pretty interesting, especially with it running Android, as it can open up more opportunities for the modding side. Whether it’s worth it or not depends on the price tag, which was the main concern of many when they saw these images. So far, there have been some rumors of it being under $300 in retail.
