Nintendo just announced a new Nintendo Switch Pro…… oh wait. That’s not the long rumoured Nintendo Switch Pro. Oops.
Instead, Nintendo just announced the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) which as the name suggest comes with a OLED screen. From the specs available online, it has a 7 inch OLED screen, a slight upgrade from the 6.2 inch LCD screen on the original Switch. Comes with 64GB internal, better speakers and a improved kickstand. The Nintendo Switch OLED comes with a new Dock with build in wired LAN port.
Despite all the changes, the new Nintendo Switch OLED is just 0.25 cm wider and 22 grams heavier. It is compatible with the existing Joy-Con and dock. And given that it is just 0.25cm wider, there is a chance that most of your existing accessories will work with the new Switch.
However, there is no 1080p display on handheld and 4K TV output. Resolution is still the same despite all the rumours. This will no doubt disappoint many fans.
The new Nintendo Switch OLED Model will be available from 8 October 2021 at US$349.99. Comes in white and neon red/neon blue colour.
