Nintendo Switch OLED, everything that is known so far
The long-awaited date for Nintendo fans is approaching, the Nintendo Switch OLED is already just around the corner. And then we are going to tell you everything that is known so far about this new device.
The newest member of the Nintendo family, the Nintendo Switch OLED is right around the corner. Recall that next October 8 is the day announced by Nintendo for this new device to hit stores.
This would be the third member of the Switch family, and so far, it is the biggest change this team has had. However, it should be noted that, although the gaming experience will be better, this is not a really important change.
Main improvements that this new Nintendo Switch has
There are several improvements that have been announced for this new Nintendo console. Among them, the following stand out:
As it is and its name implies, the main feature that this device includes is a new OLED screen. As for the resolution, we are not going to see improvements and it is still HD of 1,280 x 720 pixels and 7 inches.
The increase in size is noticeable, and is that the previous version of the panel was only 6.2 inches.
This new screen has a higher pixel density, therefore, the sharpness is greater. While this new feature is important and it shows, the truth is that it remains to be seen whether or not it is worth changing your old Switch.
Another thing that has changed in the new Nintendo Switch OLED is that it has new internal storage.
The traditional version of the Nintendo Switch had 32 GB of internal storage, while this new model includes a total of 64 GB.
This is quite important news for all users of this device who have been asking for this update for a long time. It is ideal for those people who download games and this is going to give you much more space to store games.
New stand to hold the screen
We have already talked about the screen and storage, but there is something else that this device also brings. This is a tab to hold the console upright, which is great for gaming.
This is a new addition that is included in the case and that allows you to hold the console firmly. This is one of those details that the new Nintendo Switch OLED includes that although they are not a great novelty, it is something that you must take into account.
New changes to the console base
Another of the Nintendo Switch OLED features is that the base of the device has changed. We are talking about the base that allows you to connect the console to the TV and although it may seem the same at first glance, the truth is that it includes a very interesting feature.
This novelty is the inclusion of an Ethernet port and the best of all is that it is compatible with previous versions of this device.
This is a very positive thing for those who play online, as it will offer them a much more stable connection.
Features of the new Nintendo Switch OLED
We already talked about the new features that this new device has, however, it is also necessary to mention all the features in general. The new Nintendo Switch OLED has the following features:

As you can see, the differences between the first version and the new Nintento Switch OLED are not too many. Therefore, the next question you should ask yourself is whether or not it is worth the change to this new device.
Is it worth the change?
This is a valid enough question and it is clearly a rather difficult decision.
We have seen that this new device brings some new and interesting features. However, we don't think it can be enough for you to make a change.
But don't get us wrong, this is a fantastic piece of equipment with a new screen that is wonderful. However, when comparing between one and another team, the differences are not so many to justify a change.
If you are one of the people who like to have the latest technology, we do not rule out that the new Nintento Switch OLED is going to be a very good purchase.
When will it be available?
As we have already mentioned, the new version of the Nintendo Switch will be available in stores from October 8. That is, in two days you will be able to buy the new Nintendo Switch OLED.
Additionally, we have to be available in two colors, white and neon. The first will include a white dock and the second, a black dock. In this case, the aesthetic differences are not too many, however, they are worth mentioning.
The price of the new Nintendo Switch OLED
Regarding the Nintendo Switch OLED price, we have that these new models will hit the market at $ 349 in the United States. As for Europe, the price is located at 349 euros.
The price in question is not very different from the starting price of the first version of the Nintendo Switch.
