    I suspect IF they release anything, it will probably include an increased internal capacity with any improved visuals.

    I say this based on the trouble I am having managing titles between my switch lite and release day switch, (both 400 gb cards each) and a peculiarity in how Nintendo doesn't seem to want separate lists on each separate console. What's installed on one must show as installed on the other, and what's deleted on one, also (automatically) deletes from the other.

    I know it is a bit off-topic but there appear to be some limitations and they usually release a newer console about the time the old one reaches their limitations/capacity. I have 130-150, paid titles between the two atm. There are more details/limits I've noticed I won't go into here though...

    OLED on a gaming consoles is a stupid idea for one simple reason. Burn-in.

    Maybe a dumb question but... OLED screens are more expensive than LCDs, right? (I think it was the case some years ago but maybe OLED is more affordable nowadays?)
    I always thought Nintendo wanted to have costs of production as low as possible so it kinda strange to imagine OLED screens on a Nintendo console...

    Also, when we talk about 4K, does it mean the console hardware will be more powerful than current models? Honestly, I don't really care about 4K but being able to run most games at 60fps 1080p would be neat.

    But OLED is way less energy consuming? So you have more battery time I guess?
    And when your screen is broken. Nintendo wants you to buy again and again and again. Like the 2DS Xl consoles... So many of them.

    So yes but, these aren't costing Nintendo too much since Samsung has a surplus they want to get rid of. Odds are high Nintendo may also charge more for this model, more than making up for it in profit. Given how well the Switch has been selling they can easily get away with it, as long as they differentiate this new model with enough features.

    A lot of people *want* this console to be more powerful to support 4K, but well, the Xbox One S also technically supports 4K, they could just implement an upscaling solution like that and call it a day. Right now I'm leaning towards these upgrades being about HDR support and not much more than that.

    I would say it'll probably have overclocked cpu,gpu, and ram with some additional added, I would think it's going to upscaled 4k, as achieving true native 4k 60 fps isn't cheap, if you want this on pc you're already spending $300+ for a gpu, I could see 1080p or 1440p native res more likely, with the dock having upscaling hardware in it.

    Gotta leave some room for Switch Pro 2: Electric Boogaloo. Hopefully that'll have the dpad from the GB Micro as well as its the best N ever produced.

    If 4K upscaling can be done without changing the chip, shouldn't they just be able to update the old Switch?

    If that were the case, wouldn't modders have done it by now? Idk how Switch homebrew works though so maybe I'm speaking nonsense

    You could probably buy Nintendo and make your own damn switch pro

    I just want a powerful non-portable Nintendo console.
    There's simply no way to cool the required TDP in a handheld. Look at the cooling required for the XSX and PS5. Even the XSS equivalent wouldn't stay cool in handheld.

    Well fuck me we have an attention seeking snowflake to quote a post nearly a week old.

    We see your replies to others.

    Just do the world a favor and troll off back under your bridge and let the adults talk.

    And fyi to all the fan rumors of a pro, its fake, nintendo didnt ditch the design they had for no reason.

    Making the lite ensured no old exploit could be revised and chose portable only.

    The switch already has portable 720 resolution.

    Itd be hard for it to do 4k in a tv with attached joycons as it fucks up as it is on the lite trying to attach other controlers on older games
