Sony Announces PlayStation Project Q – Its Next Handheld Device

PlayStation has officially announced Project Q – Sony’s latest and new handheld gaming device that will use remote play over wifi.

The announcement confirms Insider Gaming’s exclusive report several months ago about the device.

Codenamed the Q Lite (Jim Ryan refers to it as Project W), the next PlayStation handheld is the next piece of Sony hardware that aims to be yet another piece of hardware that requires the PlayStation 5.

Sporting adaptive streaming up to 1080p and 60FPS, the new device will require constant connectivity to the internet.

As for the console’s physical features, early prototypes show the console will look a lot like a PlayStation 5 controller, but with a massive 8-inch LCD touchscreen in the center. The device sports adaptive triggers for haptic feedback and will include what you would come to expect from a handheld – Volume buttons, speakers, an audio input jack, etc.

Insider Gaming understands that the Q Lite is in its QA phase and is scheduled to release before the PlayStation 5 Pro and after the Detachable Disc Drive PS5.
