And yet... It didn't actually happen.
It's not like Nintendo did a bait-and-switch at the last moment and opted to retain the old chip, these things are planned years in advance.

More than likely it was a simple mix up. 

Production line leaks (correctly) pointed to a Nintendo Switch model with an OLED screen and new dock and if you're also getting info on a new dev kit with a new chip, the natural assumption would be this is probably all for one model instead of being two different devices. Pretty easy mistake to make. 

Using dev kits to project what a consumer device is going to be, opens up for potential issues as decent Dev Kits have typically always ran with a few changes in hardware to aid in development. I.E. More Ram or faster CPU/GPU etc' to account for profiling and logging tools overhead.

And this circles back around to my previous point... Stop. Beleving. Rumors.

The amount of people who flat out get it wrong... Time and again, just out of excitement, only to fall for the next rumor is absolutely depressing.
