PlayStation’s Project Q handheld reportedly only has 3-4 hour long battery life

During Sony’s recent PlayStation Showcase, the console manufacturer officially announced Project Q – a Remote Play enabled handheld which will allow you to play your PS5 games away from the console itself. Few details were shared at the time – though according to an industry insider Project Q’s battery life will be surprisingly short.

Following the official announcement of Project Q, industry insider Tom Henderson (via Insider Gaming) claimed that the game streaming handheld will feature a battery life ranging from just 3-4 hours.

This is surprising, especially given the fact that the handheld does not run the games on its hardware, instead simply streaming the video through PlayStation’s Remote Play service. Of course, it is worth noting that the device will feature an 8-inch LCD panel running at 1080p and 60fps.

Alongside this, the handheld is said to include all of the many impressive DualSense features (gyro, haptics, adaptive triggers and more), which could be contributing to the disappointing battery life.

Henderson also revealed that Project Q is planned to launch sometime in mid-late November, lining up with SIE CEO Jim Ryan’s own statements regarding its launch happening later this year.

The announcement of Project Q has been met with a great deal of scepticism – and if these battery life rumours are true then the sentiment towards this new device is unlikely to change any time soon.
