Honestly, I think its too soon.I mean, at least in my view, it dosent make sense the reasoning behind it, which it is to keep Switch sales momentum going.If that were the case, all Nintendo had to do is give the system a price cut, and leave the revision for later, which I assume would have an 1080p screen and better performance exclusively to get the resolutions on undocked mode to 1080p and keep the framerate steady and acceptable.Maybe to also improve overall performance on docked mode too.Not to mention any other benefits they could also fit in there, such as bigger storage size.
I dont know.For me, a revision for 2020 makes far more sense.It should be noted that this is a report, and thus a "rumor", so always take these news with a grain of salt.
Its not too soon, every Nintendo handheld had some kind difrent type of revision around 2 years after launch, and Switch hardware is essentially handheld and has even more opportunities for different type of revisions than 3DS. Point is simple, offer different price point of Switch platform, for instance you have 3DS for $80, $150 and $200 and 3DS is dying fast, so smaller and lower price point revision for Switch totally make sense, stronger and more pricey Pro not that much curently.
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.
But this IS the definition of being vague, even if they dont know the details...
But main point of this rumour is not if will be Mini or Pro, but point that new version of Switch is coming next year in any case.
