The morning after: Nintendo finally showed off its new switch


Nintendo’s long-rumored new Switch has arrived-this is not what many of us hoped for. still, OLED switchh is the most mature Switch to date, with a smaller frame, a new off-white base and a matching Joy-Con. The core upgrade is-shockingly-the screen: a new 7-inch OLED panel, which should provide clearer graphics when played as a handheld device. However, the resolution has not changed, so it is stretched wider than the original 6.2-inch LCD Switch.

I can complete the rest of the changes because there are not so many. There is now 64GB of internal storage space-another mature upgrade-and a wider, stronger bracket replaces the fragile plastic label on the original Switch. You can adjust it to multiple angles to get a more comfortable desktop/airplane tray table game. The new off-white base also has a built-in Ethernet port, and the core OLED switch improves the speaker. Otherwise, there will be no newer processors, and there seems to be no improvement in battery life. (The company has not yet provided any battery estimates on its official website.)

OLED Switch is not suitable for current Switch users who wish to upgrade-although I don’t doubt that some of us will buy it. It is a refined version of the original version (or I may be easily confused by the monochrome color scheme), but it seems to be specifically aimed at handheld players and they will benefit from a larger OLED screen. This is weird when the cheaper non-hybrid Switch Lite targets the same crowd.

Nintendo could have crushed the more radical rumors that it could support 4K and upgrade the powerful version of the game, but it is not the case. Because it is Nintendo, it means that it has a changeable vision for hybrid game consoles, Iconic game, Detachable controls, while ignoring Bluetooth audio support and in-game chat functions.And did not mention any changes Fix Joy-Con drift.

If you are looking for a comparison of console history, please consider that this is the GameBoy Pocket style on GameBoy, rather than the more powerful PS4 Pro to replace PS4.

Will we see a Switch Pro that supports 4K? Does it even exist? Only Nintendo knows.

Verizon (Engadget’s parent company) Currently) Revealed the tactical humanitarian response, THOR-a modified Ford F650 truck.
