Sony Project Q

A few hours ago, three leaked pictures of Sony’s highly anticipated handheld console. The images of Project Q, were shared on IMGUR and subsequently posted on Reddit. These images provide an exciting glimpse into the inner workings of the device. However, most significant revelation is that Project Q appears to be running on the Android operating system.

Android OS Integration: A Game-Changer for Project Q

The use of Android OS on Project Q was a topic of speculation among users following its announcement during the last PlayStation Showcase. Sony has marketed the console as a device focused on Remote Play streaming from a PlayStation 5 console.

The official description describes Project Q would allows players to play game installed on their PS5 console using Remote Play over Wi-Fi. With its 8-inch LCD screen capable of delivering up to 1080p resolution at 60fps. Project Q promises crisp visuals and smooth gameplay even when away from the TV.

The inclusion of Android OS opens up possibilities for modders to enable streaming applications such as GeForce NOW, Shadow, Boosteroid, Amazon Luna, and Xbox Cloud on the handheld console. This potential functionality would position Project Q as a viable alternative to devices like the Logitech G Cloud or the Abxylute.

Battery Life is a Potential Drawback

However, insider Tom Henderson has revealed that Project Q may have a drawback in terms of battery life. According to Henderson, the handheld console is expected to offer a subpar battery life of approximately three to four hours. In comparison, the Logitech G Cloud boasts over twelve hours of gameplay. The Abxylute can provide over eight hours of gaming.

DualSense Controller with Streaming Limitations

Despite this potential limitation, Project Q does come with a full-fledged DualSense wireless controller. It has all the buttons and features, including Adaptive Triggers and Haptic Feedback. However, the use of these features will be limited to streaming PS5 games.

The PC games currently do not support DualSense’s Adaptive Triggers and Haptic Feedback during streaming.

Launch Window and Wireless Earbuds

As of now, Project Q does not have a specific launch window, with Sony only stating a vague “later this year.” It is expected to be released alongside another PlayStation accessory. It will be the first-ever wireless earbuds under Sony’s gaming brand. These earbuds promise a high-quality audio experience with low latency and lossless audio for both PlayStation 5 and PC users.

While the device’s potential for streaming applications is promising, the reported subpar battery life may be a cause for concern. Nevertheless, the inclusion of a DualSense controller and the upcoming wireless earbuds further enhance the overall gaming experience for Project Q users.
