    Hi,

    As the title says, will we be able one day to buy for example an OLED screen for the Switch and just replace the pannel ? Or a bigger one that covers all the front glass ? (Which is plastic, I know)

    And of yes, how expensive do you think it will be ?

    Thank you :)

    Yes very likely. We already have custom shell replacements for everything except the front. In time we'll likely see other parts too

    Yes. There are some replacement parts popping up on Aliexpress. From Joycon nubs to the screen.

    They've still got a healthy selection of replacement parts.

    Actually front replacements are available also. I got one and then looked at all the work it would take to do - it is way more complicated than the rear one.

    Yep they do and I really do think we will see a better maybe slightly bigger screen for sell for it but it would need a case replacement for that.

    I have only seen the digitizer for sell not the screen separate but if they are sold out that may be why i can not find it right now lol. But if they come out with a better screen I will be upgrading both my systems.

    I agree though. If a third party can push out a better screen then an upgrade will be fun.

    Plenty of parts for customization. I have done quite a few custom switches / joycons for others, being Chinese they do need a bit of tidying up before using.
