Just like the regular Switch, the OLED model is launching in two color schemes: White and Neon Red/Neon Blue. These models are functionally identical, however, so it really just comes down to your aesthetic preference.

What is the Nintendo Switch OLED model
The newest member of the Nintendo Switch family is a refreshed version of the base Nintendo Switch console. That means it offers all the same features as the regular Switch but with a set of much-needed upgrades.
The flagship feature is the new 7-inch OLED screen. This is a sizeable increase from the 6.2-inch LCD screen on the standard Nintendo Switch. The OLED screen will make exclusive games like Metroid Dread and Breath of the Wild 2 look even more incredible when played in handheld mode.
The Nintendo Switch OLED model will also offer a wide adjustable stand, perfect for finding the ideal angle for play, an improved dock that boasts a wired LAN port (ideal for upcoming multiplayer shooter Splatoon 3), 64GB of internal storage (double the 32GB on the standard Switch) and enhanced audio features thanks to a redesigned set of inbuilt speakers. It also appears to last for a little longer, as we found out when we tested the Nintendo Switch OLED battery life.
It’s definitely an evolution of the Nintendo Switch, rather than the revolutionary Nintendo Switch Pro that some had hoped for, but if you’re a frequent Switch player or just looking to get a Nintendo system for the first time, the Nintendo Switch OLED model is the clear choice to go with.
