The OLED model of the Nintendo Switch was suddenly announced on Tuesday, July 6, 2021.
As the name suggests, it features an OLED display, which allows users to enjoy even more beautiful images when using it in portable or table mode, as well as a new speaker and other power-ups!
However, it does not seem that the Nintendo Switch itself has been upgraded, and it is a little difficult to tell how much has changed, isn't it?
We' ve decided to compare the OLED model of Nintendo Switch, the current Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo Switch Lite!
Performance comparison of the three models!
This comparison is based on the Nintendo website's " Comparison of Nintendo Switch Family Features and Fun ctions".
CPU, RAM, and other features that have not been announced are considered to be identical and are not listed here.
The advantages of the OLED model include a 7-inch OLED screen, a wired LAN port on the dock, a free-stop stand on the back, and 64GB of storage memory.
The weight has increased slightly to about 420g as the screen has become larger, but the size of the main unit has remained almost the same, with only a 3mm increase in width.
The battery life also seems to be the same as the current model.
The price is about 5,000 yen more than the current model, so if you consider it as the cost of purchasing a wired LAN adapter and a small SD card, it would be a good option for those who are considering purchasing a new model.
If you mainly use TV mode, maybe you don't need to replace it?
The OLED model of the Nintendo Switch does not have major spec differences from the current model.
Personally, I feel that those who already own a Nintendo Switch and use TV mode as their main mode of operation do not need to be so positive about replacing it.
But for those who mainly use portable or table mode, the slightly larger and more vivid 7" OLED display is very appealing!
It will be released a little later, on Friday, October 8, 2021, so why not consider it until then?
