A Nintendo Switch Pro, with OLED screen and 4K, coming soon? This is what our colleagues at Bloomberg are implying, which indicates that the Japanese firm would be preparing to unveil a new model of its flagship console later this year.
An Arlesian who may soon be no longer an Arlesian… According to our colleagues from the Bloomberg site, Nintendo is about to unveil a brand new format, similar to a pro model, for its Switch, including an OLED screen and the possibility to display a 4K resolution on screen, once the console is on its dock. Date of arrival of this little jewel of technology? In the course of the year, again according to Bloomberg, and more precisely “for the holiday season”.
A production that should be launched in June 2021, with screens. These would be designed by Samsung Display Co., with “initial monthly target of less than a million units”, would make 7 inches and would be delivered the following month to Nintendo. “The OLED panel will consume less batteries, offer higher contrast and possibly a better response time compared to the current liquid crystal screen of the Switch,” explains Yoshio Tamura, co-founder of the DSCC display expertise firm, to our colleagues from Bloomberg.
A good news, therefore, for all those who expect this console “Pro”, but a news that will still have to be formalized by Big N. As a reminder, in the world, the Nintendo Switch has sold 79 million copies since its launch in 2017, making the console the 5th best-selling Nintendo console.
