Bruh, even the 2,3 year old Snapdragon 855, 845 chipsets are more powerful than this Nintendo garbage

All I'm saying is that Nintendo should have included in the updated model, a full hd display and a updated or a new Nvidia gpu and 128gb of internal. Today's flagship smartphones have more kick than the switch. Nintendo stop being so conservative.

TechnoTerraBlade, 06 Jul 2021They could have at least bumped the screen resolution to 10... moreSwitch struggle with some games at 720p, unless they upgrade soc it will be waste to upgrade display.

TBH, this is going to be the model to replace the OG Switch. It's starting at $350 but I think it will go down to $300 once the original Switch is phased out. Then, when Breath of the Wild 2 emerges, there will be a 'New Nintendo Switch Pro' with upgraded Tegra Chip that enables 4K docked, better performance with better efficiency, Bluetooth 5+. Wifi 6, better LAN support, and better thermals alongside bigger battery, (maybe) variable refresh rate (90Hz undocked; 120Hz docked), and dock with fan to prevent overheating (as well as USB 3.1 and HDMI 2.2 across the board).

That's my guess. 2022.

Olym1mk2, 06 Jul 2021So still no reason to buy this instead of just using the ph... moreCan phone play Witcher 3, fire Emblem 3 house, skyrim, super Mario Odyses etc?

I have Vita and android phone which can emulate up to Citra and Dolphin but I still prefer Vita Over my phone in gaming.

So pay 50$ more just for 720 OLED..

And that's not full RGB so that's gonna look super grainy

AND it's possible that some unlucky customer will get burn in later on not all customers but some will be unlucky

Looks pretty good. Only a £30 price increase in UK, £309.99 compared to £279.99 for the old model.

gotta be real, it looks great
not sure how it holds up for retro gaming at that price though

So still no reason to buy this instead of just using the phones. Gotcha

They could have at least bumped the screen resolution to 1080p, but the extra storage is quite a nice change.

Nintendo has a history with 3rd iteration of portable gaming machines, example, ds, ds lite, ds I, game boy advance, game boy advance sp, game boy advance micro.

I was expecting a new upgraded SoC and 4K output. Oh well, it still looks good.

I have no problem with that, and the white looks fantastic.
