Images and videos purportedly taken of Sony’s recently announced “Project Q” handheld system have leaked online.
Twitter user Zuby_Tech uploaded the images over the weekend, as well as a 28-second video showing how the system works.
The images and video also give us a closer look at its eight-inch display, flashers on either side of the device, and what we think is evidence that it’s running on Android software.

Yes, we have tried to load the QR code clearly displayed on the device screen in the images, but at the moment, it just points to a dead page. We are sorry.
At the moment, there’s still no release date beyond 2023, nor a concrete price, but seeing the device in the wild for the first time should be good news for fans looking to get their hands on the Project Q handheld sooner rather than later.
of The Sony PS5 Project Q handheld was revealed at the end of May during the PlayStation Showcase. It’s a cloud gaming system that uses the console’s Remote Play feature to stream titles instead of playing games natively. It’s basically ready as an improved way to stream yours PS Plus library on a dedicated drive instead of relying solely on your smartphone.
“We’ll know more in the coming months, but as it stands, Project Q was a bit of a damp squib at an already tepid PlayStation Showcase,” Rhys wrote in their feature. Sony’s Project Q is a handheld device without portability.
“I’d like to be surprised by the device when it’s released, but will it be the triumphant return of Sony’s handheld form? Probably not.”
Thanks, The Loadout.
