This new portable PC will be looking to claw some of the market share away from the likes of the Steam Deck and ROG Ally.
Earlier this week computing giant MSI shared a teaser video on their Instagram, suggesting that the company was gearing up to reveal a new gaming portable at CES — but now, ahead of any official reveal at the imminent Vegas show, we may have our first proper look at the upcoming device thanks to a leak.
A new image shared on X (formerly Twitter) appears to show our first full look at the new device.
This image seems to be a Chinese promotion in which participants can enter for a chance to win the new MSI handheld. The promotional image clearly refers to the device as the 'Claw' — which matches up with the logo seen at the end of MSI's teaser video.
The device, shown in black, has no trackpads, and seems to sport a layout similar to that of the ASUS ROG Ally.
In addition to this new image, we also have fresh details on the devices possible specs. We speculated that this new handheld gaming PC may be powered by an Intel chip, and this now seems likely, as an entry on Geekbench's database seems to confirm. The MSI Claw looks to be equipped with an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H.
Official details on this upcoming device are expected at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show.
