Nintendo Switch OLED Model Announced

Recent articles

After many months of rumors, the legendary “Nintendo Switch Pro” has finally been announced by Nintendo. Only it’s not exactly a “pro” mode, but a “Nintendo Switch OLED model” that offers a better experience.

The Nintendo Switch OLED model comes down to the following improvements over the base Switch model:

  • 7-inch OLED screen
  • Wide, adjustable stand
  • Built-in wired LAN port in the dock
  • 64 GB internal storage (twice as much as the base Switch model)
  • Enhanced audio in handheld mode

As of now, there’s no word on a major hardware upgrade. But on the plus side, it doesn’t appear to be a necessary upgrade for Nintendo Switch owners.

Nintendo has a Frequently asked questions page Pagina, next to an comparison table: that describes the difference between the new OLED model, the basic switch and the Switch Lite.

While the rumors correctly predicted many features of the OLED model (such as the 7-inch screen, built-in Ethernet port, new stand), the rumors were false as it would allow 4k output.

Unfortunately, it seems that to make room for the built-in LAN port, one of the USB ports on the back of the dock had to be removed. It seems that there are a total of 2 USB ports. This is less than the 4 USB ports in the regular Switch dock.

The Switch OLED model has a maximum resolution of 1920×1080 and 60fps in the dock and the maximum resolution of 1280×720 in handheld mode, which corresponds to the screen resolution.

The Nintendo Switch OLED model will retail for $349.99 USD and will be released on October 8, 2021, the same day that Metroid Dread is also released.
