New Nintendo Switch model with 7-inch OLED screen announced, coming Oct. 8

Nintendo will release a new version of the Nintendo Switch this October, the company announced Tuesday. The new Nintendo Switch, officially named Nintendo Switch (OLED model), will cost $349.99, $50 more than the price of the original Nintendo Switch that launched in 2017.

The new Nintendo Switch will boast a larger, 7-inch screen and an OLED display when it launches on Oct. 8. The standard Switch has a 6.2-inch LCD screen, and outputs a 1080p feed when docked. According to Nintendo’s website, the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) will feature a maximum resolution of 1920×1080 and maximum frame rate of 60 fps.

The new Switch will also feature a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port, 64 GB of internal storage, and “enhanced audio.” Nintendo says that existing Joy-Cons will be compatible with the OLED model, and that the new Switch will be compatible with the full library of already-released Nintendo Switch games.

The new system will come in two color variations: one with white Joy-Cons and a white dock, and the other with traditional red and blue Joy-Cons and a black dock.

Nintendo’s confirmation of the new Nintendo Switch comes after months of rumors and reports about an upgraded version of the hit console-handheld hybrid set to arrive this fall. Word of a new, more powerful Switch dates back to 2019.

Nintendo also sells the $199 Nintendo Switch Lite, which launched in September 2019 with a 5.5-inch screen, and includes non-detachable controllers and cannot be docked to a TV.
