Out of nowhere, Nintendo just came out and introduced the new Switch OLED model.

As the name suggests, the Nintendo Switch OLED model now has a more colorful and vibrant screen. It’s also much larger now at 7-inches from 6.2-inches of the original Switch.


Despite the larger screen, the dimensions are actually the same. That’s thanks to smaller and thinner bezels.

But besides the display, Nintendo actually brought a couple of improvements to the OLED model to make it a more interesting buy. For one, there’s the improved kickstand that’s now more flexible.


For the most reliable connection, the dock now has a built-in wired LAN port when using in TV mode.

But probably the best new feature is the expanded storage. It now has 64GB of memory, twice as much as the 32GB of the original Switch and the Switch Lite.


The Joy-Cons are untouched but the built-in stereo speakers have been enhanced for an improved handheld and tabletop experience.

Other than those, everything is the same. There’s still an HDMI port on the dock to play with friends in TV mode, Joy-Cons with HD rumble and IR Motion Camera, and up to a 9-hour battery. Game compatibility is the same, too.

The Nintendo Switch OLED model has a price of USD349.99 (around Php17,400) and will be available this October 8, 2021. It comes on the classic Neon Red/Neon Blue set and a new and cleaner White option.
