The Pre-orders for OLED model Nintendo’s Switch are now live this morning. The Nintendo Switch Pro OLED model is due to hit the market on 8 October, but pre-orders are already underway to order one. It features a wider and more adjustable base (perfect for finding the ideal angle to play), an improved dock with a wired LAN port (ideal for upcoming multiplayer shooters such as Splatoon 3), 64GB of internal storage (compared to 32GB on the standard switch) and improved audio features thanks to a redesigned set of built-in speakers.
The new Nintendo Switch Pro OLED model is similar in size to the Nintendo Switch console but features a larger, brighter 7-inch OLED screen with vibrant colors and high contrast. It features a wider, adjustable stand for tabletop gaming, a new dock with a wired LAN port for stable online gaming, built-in speakers for enhanced audio for handheld and tabletop gaming. The new Nintendo Switch version is the Nintendo Switch Sound Switch, an upgrade to the OLED display, and it brings along a number of other promising updates to Nintendo’s hybrid game console.
Coming in a new box with a redesigned dock and bigger screen, you won’t be able to tell the difference at a glance between the regular switches and the Switch OLED models. The new OLED switch also features a dock with a LAN port to connect the console to the wireless Internet for faster speeds and improved stability regardless of the color you choose.
The new dock that comes with the console is unchanged, but the port now has a rounded edge. While Nintendo has stated there is no difference in the gaming experience between the ToyCon accessories of the Nintendo Labo series, there is a difference in the screen size of the console between the OLED switch and the Nintendo switch. Upcoming Switch exclusive games like Metroid: Dread of the Breath of the Wild 2 will look incredible in handheld mode on the OLED display. Those hoping for improved display performance may be disappointed, as there is no sign of a CPU or GPU upgrade yet and there are no rumors of 4K graphics support.
