New Nintendo Switch with 4K Support and an OLED screen dropping this year. This is it, this is my time!
I’ve been waiting for a couple of years for Nintendo to drop a new Switch, and my friends it appears my time is now! A report by Bloomberg has the company dropping a new Switch model this year, with 4K support and a new OLED screen. Oh hell yes, sign me the fuck up!
Last year, Bloomberg reported that a new model of the Nintendo Switch would be out sometime in 2021. Today, they’re reporting some more specific details, like the size of the screen and some 4K news.
The original report was very light on details, saying only that Nintendo “has looked into including more computing power and 4K high-definition graphics.” That has now been clarified to say this new model will feature an OLED screen made by Samsung, which will be seven inches across (current Switch models are 6.2 and 5.5 inches for the regular and Lite respectively) and feature a 720p resolution.
It will also, perhaps even more importantly, output 4K visuals when connected to a TV, which will make for one hell of a resolution change when switching between docked and handheld mode.
Bloomberg’s report says production on the new screens will commence in June, with the “displays slated for shipment to assemblers around July,” meaning this new model would be ready “in time for the holidays.”
