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

4K will be for video streaming, not games.

This looks more like a Switch Pro rather than a full Switch 2 (too early) but we will see. I am not even sure if we will see a new CPU/GPU. Might just get a smaller production process Samsung 8nm and more battery life again.

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

I'm sick of these Switch revision stories. It just seems like they keep rolling them out until Nintendo finally does revise the Switch and they can say "we called it."

I mean, that's how the vast majority of predictions work. If enough people throw shit at a wall some of it will stick and those people will now be "trusted" to know things.



These changes don't matter much to me, or at least not enough to drop 300+ dollars. Hopefully if this is true, the new system has some other features.



Wanna see all the games with improved frame rates.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

Many of the portable games aren't at native 720p/60, if they increase the power of the Switch and run those games closer to 720p/60 you'd be more than happy. Crispness isn't an issue. Also OLED is TOPS for image quality.



- 4K output
- No DLSS
- 720p screen
-399 dollars

Don't get hyped. Get ready for it. Nintendo has never sold a console at a loss.



I always thought the Splatoon 3 screen grabs Nintendo put out looked way too clean to be running on an existing Switch

The Switch doesn't have access to any major streaming platform. This is true even 4 years after its release. Do you really believe that they will make a new Switch model with 4K to use it on stuff Nintendo has made very clear they give two shits about? 



Nice I best both parties got a good deal from this. Samsung gets rid of 720P inventory and Nintendo gets a load of panels for cheap. Nintendo did similar type deal with Nvidia (with Tegra X1's)

@Soundwave
I doubt this will display 4K natively on a mobile chip. Maybe 1440P since 720P scales best with that with DLSS. Which is still worlds away from 640-900P docked in most NS games xP
