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 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.
