A handheld console on Android?

According to recent leaks, Sony’s forthcoming handheld gaming device, Project Q, is rumored to be running on the Android operating system. The video showcased what seemed to be an Android OS installed, although there is no confirmation regarding the same.

The Project Q leak showcased a simple UI running on Android

First announced in the PlayStation Showcase 2023, Project Q is designed as a streaming platform that enables players to utilize Remote Play functionality, allowing them to play PS5 games. It will feature an 8-inch HD screen and will include all the buttons and features found in the PS5 DualSense wireless controller, which will run games with 1080p and 60fps over Wi-Fi.

As per the leaks shared in a tweet by user Zuby_Tech, while giving the overview of the plastic-wrapped device, it appears that a basic version of the Android OS was being run on the device’s menu screen. The video didn’t last long however, it includes a few options and was accompanied by a QR code. The language wasn’t English either, so it looked like a display product.

The leaked video showcasing the menu system and the Android OS could be an early prototype or a work in progress, and the final design and user experience may vary significantly from what was shown. Until official confirmation from Sony or credible sources, it’s best for users and potential buyers to approach such leaks with skepticism and avoid drawing any firm conclusions.

If in case the device comes on the Android OS, it would be excellent for players to use cloud-based services like StadiaxCloud, Amazon Luna, and NVIDIA GeForce Now. We shall find out once the device gets a full-fledged launch.
