A user revealed the first images of Valve’s current Steam Deck UI. The interface is still being worked on, but the images offer a first glimpse of its current design. Beyond some aspects of the operating system where the portable device runs, it is possible to notice the classic Steam layout adapted and optimized for the Valve platform.
Valve recently sent out the first dev-kits of its Steam Deck, and a user on Twitter took the opportunity to reveal a first look at the device’s user interface. The user responds to Pavel Djundik and is renowned on the web for his reports on SteamDB regarding Steam sales.
From the images published by Djundik, it is possible to recognize the classic Steam layout here adapted and optimized to run on a mobile system. You may also notice some aspects of the Steam Deck operating system, which will be Linux-based such as the lower-left icon showing the text “Steam Menu,” much like the Windows Start key.
- Steam Deck will not launch every game from the Steam platform
- Steam Deck will offer the same performance as a laptop or connected to the dock
- Steam Deck trackpad, coupled with the gyroscope, won’t make you regret a mouse
The rest of the screens show the Steam user library, identical to the PC with results, game time, and other game details, in this case, Deathloop. Some of the text is not formatted well, but as reported by the user, the interface is still being processed, and obviously, it could undergo changes by December.
Valve’s Steam Deck is currently expected in December.
