There have been rumours for more than a year now that, sooner or later, Nintendo was going to announce the launch of a newly revised Switch console. – Well, while it certainly took a while, following an official announcement from the gaming giant, that revision is now here with Nintendo confirming that the Switch OLED will hit retailers in October this year!
Nintendo Switch OLED Revision
While the Nintendo Switch OLED certainly comes with some nice new inclusions, the main key surprise (against a lot of rumour and speculation) is that it will not be a 4K capable system. Nvidia DLSS has, therefore, seemingly not been able to make the party for this launch. In terms of what you do get, however, there is certainly some nice quality of life improvements seen on the original model.
The most notable of these include a new 7-in OLED panel, a wired LAN port, a new and improved stand, and 64GB of internal storage (double that seen in the original model). The only minor trade-off for this upgraded version is that the newly revised Switch is just ever so slightly heavier than the original design. Albeit, nothing to have a song or dance about (circa 22 grams).
