Nintendo Reveals New Switch Model

A New Addition To The Switch Family Arrives This Fall

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.

My first passion was gaming so, naturally, I like to play and talk about them. My goal is to show the world how things like games and comics can move, inspire and change someone's life in a positive way. I also enjoy training BJJ and eating great food.
