The new Nintendo Switch (OLED model) will ship in October at a price of $350, $50 more than the standard switch model.
“The new system features a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port, 64 GB of internal storage, and enhanced audio,” the Nintendo website notes of the differences that justify the $50 price hike. By comparison, the normal Switch has a 6.2-inch LCD display and 32 GB of storage.
Resolution is unchanged at up to 1080p over HDMI in TV mode and up to 720p via the built-in display. Nintendo also notes that the dock’s new LAN port is can be used when playing the Switch in TV mode. Battery life appears to be the same as before, 4.5 to 9 hours, and the OLED system is fully compatible with the full library of Nintendo Switch games. As before, storage can be expanded with microSDHC or microSDXC cards up to 2 TB.
