New portable PlayStation or Nintendo console with Snapdragon?

Portable consoles like mushrooms after the rain. It’s time for the old guard to attack, i.e. Nintendo or PlayStation?

Qualcomm wants to try its hand at the handheld market

Until recently, the Nintendo Switch was the only sensible proposition on the portable console market. However, the components of the hybrid console of the great N are extremely outdated, which was used by Valve in the case of Steam Deck. This started a trend, as evidenced by ASUS ROG Ally. It made everyone suddenly remember that handhelds can be great – and possibly a deluge of portable devices is coming.

It turns out that one of the companies that wants to conquer this market is Qualcomm. The company initially planned for an Android-based game console that would feature detachable controllers, similar to the Joy-Cons on the Switch. It will not be surprising that the heart of such a console is to be the latest Snapdragon – which makes more sense, because Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the last Antutu ranking was the unrivaled king of smartphone chips, and phones such as POCO F5 Pro or ASUS ROG Phone 7 Ultimate are kings benchmarks. So it is possible that a console with such a heart may turn out to be a hit.

The console will be handled by… Nintendo or PlayStation?

However, Qualcomm does not want to enter this market on its own. According to the latest information, the company is in talks with two Japanese console giants – Sony and Nintendo – and it is one of these companies that would help create a handheld with Snapdragon. The best CPU from smartphones in the hands of experienced and distinguished companies that have several successful portable devices under their belt? Yes please.

Qualcomm is allegedly seeking help from Nintendo with the design and functionality of the handheld game console. As for Sony, the company may be working with the Tokyo giant to develop and launch exclusive mobile games optimized for the Snapdragon platform. Some rumors suggest that such a console will even have Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, which will bring even better quality and performance than the current top gaming smartphones and is also to be found in notebooks.
