Earlier this morning, Nintendo unveiled the rumored OLED model of its Switch console. However, it isn’t entirely the “Switch Pro” fans may have expected.
That’s because the OLED model doesn’t seem to boast a new processor. Rumors pegged an upgraded processor for a revised Switch console, which reportedly would have allowed for 4K output when docked.
That said, there are some changes that do align with the previously-reported rumors.
First, the OLED model comes with a 7-inch screen as opposed to the 6.2-inch screen of the original. The resolution appears to be the same, which means the OLED display will have a 1,280 x 720 resolution. There’s also a wider and more adjustable stand for playing in undocked mode, akin to the stand on the Microsoft Surface Pro line of tablet computers.
The system also boasts enhanced audio and a built-in wired LAN port for online play. Previously, Switch owners had to purchase a separate LAN adapter for their Switch docks
Overall, the OLED model seems to be a simple redesign for the console, instead of a more powerful rendition.
The new Switch model will go on sale October 8 for $349.99.
