Although Qualcomm is one of the most important hardware suppliers when it comes to mobile technologies. It does not have a commercial product that directly reaches the end consumer. However, according to the news of Android Police, which is based on sources close to Qualcomm. The hardware giant is preparing to meet consumers with a portable game console, which is a competitor of Nintendo Switch.
Android Police states that they saw the non-final design of the device still in development. But were unable to share it for privacy reasons. According to the information reported, Qualcomm‘s portable game console will have physical controllers that can be attached and removed from the sides. It is just like the Nintendo Switch, and the body will look like a “hefty” smartphone.
Qualcomm’s portable game console will come with Android 12
The portable game console will have a better cooling system as it will be larger than a standard smartphone. This means that the device may offer better performance compared to flagship smartphones. Also, the device is likely to be powered by a flagship segment Qualcomm processor.
The Qualcomm portable game console is said to come with a 6.65-inch screen. The 6,000 mAh battery means that the console can be used throughout a standard gaming session without charging problems. Also, the device will also support Qualcomm‘s Quick Charge technology. The device will be able to offer a long gaming experience with short-term charging.
It is said that Qualcomm will also offer wired video transfer to TV or monitor for a true game console experience. But it is unclear whether it will use mini HDMI or USB Type-C as an output. The device will use Android 12 as the operating system. The device will support all Google services as well as being a game console.
It is also among the information that Qualcomm wants to establish its own content portal for the portable game console it plans to launch in the first quarter of 2022. However, it is currently unknown whether the company will support Google Stadia or NVIDIA GeForce NOW. When it comes to Qualcomm, we don’t even need to mention 5G support. However, it is not yet known whether all versions or only one version will support 5G.
Qualcomm is said to set a $ 300 price tag for the portable game console. Considering the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition has a $ 400 price tag, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Qualcomm has to offer really solid features and benefits to sell its portable game console.
