After announcing its handheld device known as Project Q in March, Sony formally unveiled its first handheld remote gaming device dubbed the PlayStation Portal.

The device takes advantage of PS Remote Play allowing you to play your PS5 games anywhere as long as you have Wi-Fi connectivity. The PS Portal needs an internet speed of at least 5Mbps to work, while Sony suggests speeds of at least 15Mbps for an optimal gaming experience. You can only play supported games installed on your PS5 console, and Sony says the device won’t support the PlayStation Plus Premium cloud streaming service. You won’t even be able to run any other games or media locally.

PS Portal offers an 8-inch LCD with 1080P resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate, as well as the same controller layout as the PS5’s DualSense. The handheld features a USB-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and top-mounted speakers. The rest of the data sheet is still hidden for now.

Oddly enough, the PS Portal doesn’t come with Bluetooth connectivity and only supports Wi-Fi and PlayStation Link. The latter is Sony’s new proprietary wireless connectivity standard that offers low-latency lossless audio and switching between compatible devices.

While it may seems good, but it doesn’t do me a favor as you need a PS5 Console. You also need wifi to have it work outside and i am not going to waste my mobile data or using a public one.

I would rather buy a Steamdeck Oled than PS Portal and a PS5.
