It was reported that a new Switch revision with an improved battery life and updated packaging will soon be released. It's now available at retailer JB Hi-Fi in Melbourne and Sydney, as well as in Hong Kong. I'll check JB Hi-Fi in Melbourne tomorrow and report my findings.

EDIT: I checked both JB Hi-Fi and EB Games. They both had the old Switch boxes on display. I didn't ask to see their stock out the back.

I guess it's just a better battery more or less. And of course ipatched :P
AFAIK this new hardware use a whole "new" SoC.

They don't have to add an "ipatch" to it since they don't use the tegrax1 anymore. (still probably not hackable from the bootrom)

i'd just buy the battery and be happy with that and think why get a new unit if you have one already ?

It has been reported that the battery is the exact same as the "old" model, so the battery life improvement comes from the new SoC.
