Qualcomm Gaming Console

The American company Qualcomm, according to reports, is developing its handheld console, which will be powered by the upcoming Android 12 platform.

According to reports, this portable gaming console will be very similar to the Nintendo Switch, but it will use Android software and will be powered by the Snapdragon chipset. The source of this information claims that he had the opportunity to see photos of the device that are not final, but that he decided not to publish them.

Reportedly, Qualcomm's console will resemble a thicker phone and will have detachable controllers on the left and right. Also, the source points out that the console will use a 6000mAh battery and will support Quick Charge technology. Although the specific dimensions of the device are not known, it could be a modified phone with a longer screen.

Qualcomm plans to release a portable console as early as the first quarter of 2022, and the device could be powered by the successor to the Snapdragon 888 chipset. It is believed that this chip will offer higher operating clocks because the thickness of the device will enable the implementation of a better cooling solution.

Besides, the implementation of the older Snapdragon X55 5G modem is mentioned, which will enable wireless connection with other players. It is not known whether Qualcomm plans to offer a Wi-Fi-only console variant in the mass market.

The Qualcomm console would reportedly have a target price of $ 300.
