After months of rumors and speculations, Nintendo has finally presented Switch OLED, the new model of its hybrid console. Thanks to the dissemination of official data, we can now find out everything about the new platform of the great N.
Of course, the predominant feature of this new variant of the console is the OLED screen, which will guarantee more vivid colors and higher contrasts. However, there are other small differences between this and the base model, including better quality speakers and a larger adjustable stand. Below we present the list of the main specifications of the Nintendo Switch OLED:
- Screen: Capacitive multi-touch touchscreen, 7.0 inch screen, 1280×720;
- GPU / CPU: NVIDIA Custom Tegra processor;
- HDD: 64GB expandable up to 2TB via microSDHC or microSDXC cards;
- Video Output: Up to 1080p via HDMI in TV mode, up to 720p via integrated screen in laptop and Tablet mode;
- Audio Output: Compatible with PCM 5.1ch Linear, HDMI cable output in TV mode
- Audio speaker: Built-in speakers for improved sound;
- USB connectors: USB Type-C for charging or to connect the dock, two USB ports;
- Base with integrated LAN port;
- Sensors: Accelerometer, gyroscope, brightness sensor;
- Battery Life: Approximately 4.5-9 hours (5.5 hours in the case of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild).
It seems that, at least for the moment, Nintendo has simply preferred to improve the quality of the Switch’s integrated screen, without going to make substantial changes to the hardware configuration of the hybrid console. No DLSS support and no 4K resolution, therefore. Probably for these characteristics there will still be a bit of a wait. For more information, we stick to the official Nintendo Switch OLED card.
