Nintendo Switch is responsible for bringing in the most revenue for the company and it has unarguably become the most profitable and promising investment for them. Therefore, you get no points in guessing that the company is back with a fresh model and are releasing as Nintendo Switch OLED !
It is common that Nintendo has often introduced hardware iterations and it is for the Switch line of consoles this time. Remember the original Switch, which got upgraded to the HAC-001(-01) model which had a better battery life? The HAC-001(-01) upgraded to the Nintendo Switch Lite. And now we will soon have the Nintendo Switch OLED. All of these models had their own unique features which added to their appeal and made them so popular. The same is true for the latest model as well.
Priced at $ 350, the Nintendo Switch OLED is set to hit the markets on October 8, 2021, as per Nintendo’s official announcement. However, it has been up for pre-order in USA and other territories since July 15, 2021. Stores that are offering users to pre-order (at the time of writing this article) are Best Buy, Game Stop and Target. However, as it is the case with newly launched gaming consoles, the stocks are running out and there is no intimation as to when they will be restocked.
The new Nintendo Switch OLED will be having a seven-inch OLED screen with vibrant colours and better contrast, enhanced audio quality, 64 GB of internal storage and a built in wired LAN port.
