The story is incredibly vague: doesn't even say whether the model will be uprange or downrange of the original. Until there's something a lot more concrete I'd count this as an unsubstantiated rumour.

They were very clear, they said based on they sources that new Switch version is coming next year, they dont know if this will be Pro or Mini/Pocket/Lite version, they even said that specs are still not finalized, only detail that they did mentioned is that Nintendo is looking at better less power screen thats not OLED.

Also WSJ before reported that Nintendo is planing/working on revision, but this is first time we have info when that revision could come.

Nintendo sources different screens for 3DS but adopts them “silently” without anyone being able to tell from the box. They could introduce new screens for the Switch without changing the consumer-facing product at all. I can't see how there can be a release date for 2019 when Nintendo hasn't even finalised specs, let alone created a working prototype. At best it's an “aspiration” to release in 2019.

Smaller bezels please
Current switch is not that good looking imho

They should also round the corners more and stack three switches into one device. Like a McPro.



Liberate Hong Kong, the revolution of our times!

Do you guys think there will be any improvements?
... or is this revision just to remove that bug that allows people to hack/homebrew/pirate on their switches?

The revision that fixed the RCM hack is already out there. Source: https://www.resetera.com/threads/bootrom-patched-switches-appear-at-retail.54531/

I highly doubt is just for the latter

We here talking about difrent version of Switch where one of the things that will most likely be different among other things is screen, we dont talking only about screen difference.

They mentioned like summer of 2019. like possible release period for this revision, we dont talk about brand new platform or brand new console, just about different revision or type of existing device thats already out. So its not like they need years for something like that, they can finalise specs even in December or even in January/February and release it on revision on summer, there is reason why Nintendo announce this types of revisions and difrent version of existing hardware only month-two before launch.



I hope they go with a Lite model that fixes the, in my opinion, two biggest problems with the current Switch: battery life and internal Storage.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

My heart wants a pro model but my brain tells me that this is definitely a mini model. Next year should be huge in sales though



hoping here for improved battery life and joy cons with a better d-pad. Wish i had waited a little more to buy mine,but oh well.



Shocker. Probably gonna have all those things the first version couldn't possible have had.
