Exactly, it would've been top end so would be a bad business move since the increased price and poor battery life would reduce sales. Also the Steam Deck was 2022, not 2020.

It depends who you look at it, if they wanted a big piece of sony market share they should have released switch 2 in late 2023, or march 2024 the latest, they would have gotten a massive amount  of third party support. now it feels just too late for it to my make a dent and i also feel like the hardware is just too dated to run thirdparty games easily in 2 years  or so after release, then ps6, steam 2 will all be around the corner.

The Switch 2 will be fine in those areas. The only big market where the Switch 2 could have a notable impact on the PS5 is Japan and it's gonna dominate there regardless and the cross-gen period will likely be even longer next time so third party games should be fine for a while after the PS6 comes out.
