Nintendo announced its new version of the gaming console “Nintendo Switch OLED”. This new variant is a big surprise for gamers because of its OLED screen and other features like improved display, updated speakers, better storage capacity, and outstanding design. Nintendo’s official website says “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. “
Among all the features its 7-inch OLED display steals the show and is far better than its predecessor, but the resolution is the same 1280×720. Also, it comes with a back stand which you can adjust to various positions. There are some improvements in the sound system as well but they did not mention what exactly those improvements are.
Nintendo Switch OLED compatibility:
The dock comes with the LAN port, so you can be connected to the internet while you are playing with the dock. This dock is also compatible with the standard model but you need to buy it separately. This new OLED is compatible with all the other previous versions of Nintendo consoles except Nintendo Labo because OLED is 2.5 cm longer and it also works with all the existing Switch docks.
Internally there are not many changes for the Nintendo Switch OLED. The new version has 64GB of internal storage, whereas the standard model comes with 32GB. The graphics, accessories, battery life are also the same so there won’t be any groundbreaking differences when compared to the previous model in this aspect. The new Nintendo Switch (OLED model) costs 350$ and available from 8th October and comes in different colors like Neon Blue, Red, and exclusive white.
Even this new version has its flaws like it won’t support Bluetooth audio, Joy-con drift is not fixed, it won’t support 1080p when it is played handy, won’t support graphics like AMD’s FidelityFX or Nvidia’s DLSS for better resolution.
