Nintendo has released a new Switch model, which uses a 7-inch 720P OLED display. What else is new with this Switch?
Rumors previously circulated that the new Switch would use a new system on a chip from Nvidia. But it seems Nintendo just updated the type of panel used.
This is assumed from the maximum resolution supported by this Switch, which is 1080p in TV mode, not 4K as previously rumored, as quoted by detikINET from The Verge, Wednesday (7/7/2021).
In addition to the new screen, the new Switch has a new kickstand that looks more sturdy, 64GB of internal storage (up from 32GB), a new dock with an ethernet port, and better audio quality.
Not much information has been spread by Nintendo regarding this new Switch. In addition to the stuck resolution support at 1080p via HDMI in TV mode. Nintendo also confirmed that there were no major changes in terms of the Switch’s specifications, such as CPU or RAM capabilities.
“Nintendo Switch (OLED model) does not have a new CPU or more RAM, the same as the previous generation Nintendo Switch,” said a Nintendo spokesman.
Then about battery life, Nintendo promises the Switch with this OLED screen can be used to play games for nine hours, just like the current Switch. Despite its slightly larger dimensions and weight, the new Switch supports the existing JoyCon.
Likewise, existing games for the previous generation of Switch will be compatible with the new Switch. There are two color variants for the Switch OLED, namely black and white, and it only went on sale on October 8 for USD 350.
