The Nintendo Switch OLED variant, which features a 7-inch OLED panel, 64GB of storage, and better acoustics, is priced at $350. (around Rs 26,100).
Nintendo has officially introduced the Nintendo Switch OLED model, an enhanced version of the Nintendo Switch system. The latest Nintendo Switch model has an OLED display, as the name suggests, but Nintendo hasn’t made any significant changes to the core circuitry.
Price and availability of the Nintendo Switch OLED model
The Nintendo Switch OLED model will be available in the US starting October 8 for $350 (about Rs 26,100). We still don’t know if the new Nintendo Switch will be available in India.
OLED features on the Nintendo Switch
On the display, storage, and design fronts, Nintendo has made a few changes. The new Nintendo Switch model has a big 7-inch OLED display instead of the previous model’s 6.2-inch LCD display. The resolution, however, remains at 1280 x 720 pixels. The video game company has also doubled the internal storage on the new Nintendo console, which now contains 64GB of storage. Apart from that, the new Nintendo Switch OLED console’s exterior is somewhat wider. The narrow bezels allow for a broad viewing angle, but the new console does not support 4K resolution.
The updated Switch model, on the other hand, features better audio and an Ethernet port on the dock. In addition, the OLED variant features a redesigned, adjustable big kickstand at the back. The dock is available separately and should work with the regular model.
Nintendo hasn’t changed the internals of the new OLED model, as we previously stated. It’s still powered by the same Nvidia Tegra X1 SoC as the base model. According to Android Authority, the Switch OLED variant is developed with mobile gamers in mind, since players will be able to play games by taking the Switch out of the dock and using it in handheld mode. The basic Neon Red/Neon Blue set, as well as an unique White set, will be available for the upcoming Nintendo Switch OLED model. It will be available alongside the Switch Standard and Switch Lite.
