Nintendo Switch OLED model includes a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen with a slimmer bezel. The large screen’s vivid colours and high contrast deliver a rich handheld and tabletop gaming experience, bringing games to life whether you’re racing at top speed or squaring off against enemies.
If you have a Nintendo Switch now then it’s basically that with more vibrant screen. The resolution is the same 720p, Games shouldn’t have better visuals and it even uses the same joy-cons. The system will include a new kickstand as well as an ethernet port but that’s about it. There’s no details on improved performance and even the Battery life is listed as the same on Nintendo’s Website.
Lastly the Switch OLED Model will have 64GB of internal memory. Up from the 32GB in the original and it will also allegedly include better speakers. All of these improvements are fine but what about a more powerful chipset, Bluetooth support for headphones and other peripherals? What about software updates with noticeable improvements to the user interface or native voice-chat on the system? Where are those improvements? These all seem like the bare minimum and that shouldn’t be the case.
The Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) releases on October 8th 2021 with at an MSRP of $349.99 in the US, but the UK version of Nintendo’s site did not give a price. If we do a direct conversion, it would be about ₤254 using current rates.
