New Switch model with bigger screen
Nintendo is about to launch a new Switch model featuring a bigger Samsung 7 inch OLED display according to Bloomberg.
The new panels are expected to go into mass-production in June, and production is expected to yield just shy of a million panels a month. That means the new Switch model should enter production sometime in July.
Improved: “The OLED panel will consume less battery, offer higher contrast and possibly faster response time when compared to the Switch’s current liquid-crystal display,” said consultant Yoshio Tamura. Apparently, the new model will also be able to output 4K, although it's unclear if that means games will be rendered at 4K or if the output will simply be upscaled.
Revision: This is not the first time Nintendo launches a new Switch model, but they have not made any official indications that they intend to launch a more powerful Switch model. It's not exactly clear that they need to either – Switch is outselling all the other consoles on the market, despite Sony and Microsoft launching next-generation consoles late last year.
