    The only revision we need is the drift on the joy cons!

    Maybe it is for you but not for me. I hardly play more than 3 hours. I usually stopped at least 2 hours for Switch. So I can play again in few hours later or next day and I never used it for outside at all. Inside the house only. So I am fine. Don't care about this one. I am waiting for Pro next year if they ever release it because of PS5 and newer XBOX competitive.

    The purple orange is okay, the blue and neon green/yellow looks disgusting.

    In portable mode, battery life was always going to be a problem.

    It's not a new hardware bump, but the improved battery is a step in the right direction. Still hoping a new hack (or three) gets found.

    don't count on it that's why they are releasing this. all previous exploits including SX will be patched. it has absolutely nothing to do with a BETTER battery that's the bait :P

    "Bait"... Or maybe there's more consumers out there that use their hardware for its intended purpose than those like you? I know, hard to imagine.

    The battery looks like a standard cell with two hot wires (red), two grounds (black) and a sense wire, even if the connector is different it should be easy to adapt, it doesn't look like a "smart" battery on first glance. If it is a "smart" battery though, you could adapt it by swapping the BMS boards, which sounds like some potentially explosive fun for aspiring modders.

    well... I hope we can swap some day the batteries to our OSwitch Models

    The opposite is true due to the diminishing returns principle, but you're not wrong - we should wait for teardowns before making definitive conclusions.

    Don't know whether is it obvious or not. But this release is meant for new switch owner

    Seems like an awful long name, a better thing to call it would be a revisioned switch. Either way there’s no limit with the word pro on a console. All it means is an enhanced version of the original. Guess what the new switch is? Bingo. Sure this could be another thing Nintendo wanted to release and they’ll be an even better switch, but either way this is a better version.

    Will we be able to "hack" this new switch? Is it possible to install and use SX OS or Atmosphere?

    We have every reason to believe the new Switch systems will not be exploitable using current methods, so no.

    I think something will eventually come out, there was an exploit being saved for a new model that that's the one ktempkin leaked?

    Perhaps, but there's nothing in the pipeline, and considering that Nintendo's security is extremely good, it will probably be years (if ever) before the newer Switch systems are hacked. One should operate as though they will never be hacked in order to not be disappointed. Unpatched systems are highly recommended.

    The only exploit I'm aware of that was being saved for newer models was Deja Vu. It's currently compatible with 4.1.0 on all systems, and it will probably be made to be compatible with everything up to 7.X. However, newer models likely won't work with Deja Vu.

    Kate disclosed fusee gulee (the RCM exploit), which only affects unpatched Switch systems.

    Nintendo's official website literally lists the battery size as being identical for both: https://www.nintendo.com/switch/tech-specs/

    4310mAh

    I quite like the Purple/Orange Joycons there.
    Other than that? Meh.
