Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Bloomberg: New Switch Model With Larger OLED Display And 4K Docked. Production Begins In June.

It would kinda suck if true. Keeping the handheld screen resolution at 720p while making it bigger will result in a loss of crispness.

That being said, I mostly play on docked mode, so the 4K ready aspect of it has me interested.

Wow! So it is actually happening. And using OLED by samsung too!
Judging by the production date will it have enough time to release it by 2020? (Not sure how it works)

To be honest, until there's official announcement from the company itself, this is purely speculation on their parts in my book.

Bloomberg isn't a fan site but a major business source, I doubt they just invented the Samsung screen order bit. 

Also other reliable sources are saying dev kits for this new Switch model are now out there with many devs so more leaks should be coming in the next few weeks. 

Plz, they've been quite the number of times where these major buisness sources have been bogus speculation found on the corner of the internet to garner some cheap clicks.

Like I said, speculations until anything is made official.

i'm cautiously optimistic and the switch could definitely do with a spec bump, but I just hope this thing doesn't have Switch Pro exclusives or anything. segmenting the huge install base the switch has managed to gain the past few years doesn't really sound good imo. might as well just be releasing for a brand new console at that point since any switch pro exclusive will be starting with a userbase of 0 again.

Probably a tad bit late to release in 2020 ;)

I would much rather see them stick with the lcd display, even if visuals are slightly sacrificed, or find another supplier.

Samsung in recent times with their "flagship" expensive phones has had a few OLED screen burn issues. My Note is 2 years old and it is fucked. My old Samsung's prior to that have had far more use and no evidence of visible screen burn.

maybe I have luck. My Note 4 fully beautiful and working, almost six years of use. Only buy a great amount of the batteries. 

Maybe a new tech OLED screen is the problem?

I just assumed samsung cut corners to make them cheaper and now not the same quality as they used to be

According to a reliable source never been *proved wrong before*,the new OLED screen burn is due to the way they make the new displays.Samsung found out that Sony had hundreds of millions of OLED Vita displays manufactured due to a badly misplaced decimal point or two, and they were stored for possible future use but were forgotten about so Sony changed to LCD Vita screens, now Samsung bought them and makes them into new screens by gluing them to a clear plastic backing made to product screen size then glues the Vita screens onto the backing cutting away any excess. now since I have done such a great job I demand you hit the notification button like button and sub button shirt button damn it just push all my buttons.

* denotes in a court of law.

It's a fundamental flaw with OLED technology itself... Exacerbated by how the user uses the device.

In saying that I have a Galaxy Note5 with a 1440P OLED screen that is 6~ years old and it's perfectly fine... Also got a Note 8, Note 10+ and Galaxy Note 20Ultra 5G that are all perfectly fine.

All with original batteries too.

I would assume it's still using the same chipset or a revision of such... And just leveraging the benefits OLED brings to save on battery or spend that extra power consumption on higher clocks or something.

When the Switch launched I wanted a higher resolution, larger panel.. So at-least the display is getting increased so my phone display is no longer larger than the Switch.

At the end of the day though... If no one wants this console, vote with your wallet and buy the current models.
