So, ah, this is pretty awkward. All the crazy hype for a new powerful Switch model upgrade, which was expecting to have a crazy specs like new chipset, 4K output, increased visual fidelity thanks to the hardware upgrade. Sadly, none of those are coming from Nintendo’s newly revealed OLED Switch model.
Almost Had It, Nintendo
The new iteration features a 7-inch OLED display, a change from its standard LCD screen. More stuff includes an Ethernet port for the redesigned dock that comes with this specific model. Speaking of the dock, it has gone through a design change as well.
The Switch now looks a bit more slimmer, while still sporting the same Joy-Cons you got from the original. All Joy-Con models are compatible with the new version. The stand is also changed, instead taking over the downward half of Nintendo Switch, allowing you to incline it anyway you want.
This model comes in white and black now, there’s also the jet black one but, it’s mostly promoted as white now. With black shade of course. The storage gets a boost, it now goes upto 64GB. More powerful speakers, full bluetooth support. Yeah, this is a bonafide Switch model.
Then there’s the price tag. That baffles me a lot about this. The Nintendo Switch is already 4 years old, yet it costs additionally 50 USD for this model. The improvements should have been a long time coming.
Here’s a picture that encapsulates my reaction to this. Thanks for reading this. I mean, let’s be real, this is Nintendo still sucking money out of their fanbase. Am not buying the OLED, it looks enticing, but I am going to stick with my older one.
