The TV consoles are getting a lot more powerful than earlier as the requirement for gaming keeps on increasing. The newly announced Apple TV 4K powered by the A12 Bionic chipset doesn’t live up to the expectations and indicates that the tech giant isn’t focusing on gaming performance.

However, it now seems that the company is working on a new Portable hybrid console for gaming which will be powered by a new chipset with performance improvements and enhanced graphics processing.

The report coming from Wccftech, citing a Korean community website Clien reveals that the upcoming hybrid portal console from Apple will be similar to the Nintendo Switch. This means that Apple is now looking to have a product that directly targets gamers.

The rumored upcoming product might have room for a powerful cooling system that sets it apart from the existing powerful devices from the brand such as iPhone and iPad. Also, the hybrid portal console will also be powered by a new chipset which will be different from the existing A-series and M-series SoC.

Further, the report adds that Apple is negotiating with notable game developers like Ubisoft to bring exclusive games to Apple Arcade. It will be interesting to see how the company integrates the upcoming console with its gaming-focused service Apple Arcade.

Earlier, the company was rumored to launch a Mac device focusing on gaming needs in 2020 but as we all know that didn’t happen. So, we would advise you to take this information about a new portal hybrid console with a pinch of salt.
