Nintendo’s Switch 2 Could Be Released Sooner Than Expected According To New Insights
According to Hayase’s report, this new console would launch with an 8-inch LCD screen. For reference, the base model of the Nintendo Switch utilizes a 6.2-inch screen, while the Switch OLED model utilizes a 7-inch screen.
A screen of such impressive size would not only be a distinctive upgrade over both of the existing Switch models, but would make an impressive statement against one of the chief competitors in the hybrid scene, the Steam Deck. Compared to this hypothetical Switch 2, the Steam Deck’s screen only measures in at 7 inches and 7.4 inches for the base and OLED models, respectively.
The big question is whether or not this hypothetical console would be an entirely new product, or another iteration on the existing Switch framework like the Switch OLED. When asked for comment on the report, a Nintendo spokesperson told Bloomberg that the company has nothing to say on the matter at the time. Given the Switch’s age, it would be a good time to release something with more power, but only time will tell if this is the year when the rumors come true.
