Nintendo revealed a new Nintendo Switch (OLED model). That’s the name they went with. This model of the Nintendo Switch is set to release on October 8, the same day as Metroid Dread, and it will cost you an MSRP of $349.99. It leaves behind a lot of the gray from the original Switch with white for a more modern feel.
The OLED Switch is similar to the base model and comes with a 7” OLED screen to provide more vivid colors and crisp contrast. It also features a wide adjustable stand similar to what you find on the Microsoft Surface tablets. In addition, it has 64GB of internal storage which is double the base model for you to store more games on the system itself. The system also features “enhanced audio” for when you’re playing via tabletop or handheld modes. The dock has feature fans have been demanding for, a wired LAN port which will allow for better internet connections. Talking about the new OLED model, Doug Bowser said:
The new Nintendo Switch (OLED model) is a great option for players who want to experience the new vibrant screen when playing in handheld and tabletop mode. With the addition of this new model to the Nintendo Switch family of systems, people have an additional choice of a system that best fits the gaming experience they desire – whether it’s Nintendo Switch (OLED model), Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite.
The Nintendo Switch (OLED model) will be available with the new white scheme or with the neon red and neon blue Joy-Con and a black dock. All past Joy-Con and games for the Nintendo Switch will work with the new model but it doesn’t work with all Nintendo Labo products.
