The gaming community has been buzzing with excitement as leaked images and video of PlayStation’s highly anticipated handheld gaming device, codenamed Project Q, surfaced online.

In the leaked video, a basic version of Android OS is seen running on the handheld device, enclosed in plastic wrap, revealing a simple menu system and a QR code. Although this likely isn’t the final version of the menu, it provides a glimpse of what’s running under the hood. The video also showcases a set of four buttons behind the tablet portion of the device on the top, centered holes on the top and bottom edge of the tablet (possibly microphones), and speaker slots on the top edge.

From the leaked images, we get a closer look at the eight-inch 1080p touchscreen display, although it is covered in a screen protector. Additionally, the images reveal the presence of attachable triggers, which could enhance the gaming experience on the device.

Based on the leaked video, it appears that Project Q is running on a custom version of Android, indicating that it might rely on cloud gaming and PS5’s Remote Play feature to stream games to the device. The system’s software seems to be responsive and snappy as the user navigates through menus using both analog sticks.

Sony first announced Project Q, which bears a Switch-like design with an eight-inch tablet screen flanked by two controller halves, in May. Jim Ryan, the head of PlayStation, confirmed that the device is set to launch later this year, although an exact release date is yet to be announced. The leaked images and video have generated significant interest among gamers, providing them with a glimpse of what to expect from this innovative gaming handheld.
