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 upcoming 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’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.
