Nintendo Is Planning On Releasing A New Switch This Year

New Switch This Year

The Main Point

There is a very high chance that there will be a new Switch this year. That would be great to see, because there are already some rumors that this Switch could have a Samsung OLED display. We already know that Nintendo is working on a new Switch model, so I don’t see any reason that one wouldn’t release this year.

The Nintendo Switch is currently the most popular console in the world. Nintendo took a chance with the Switch, and it definitely paid off. And even though the Nintendo Switch is almost 5 years old now, it has still been doing insanely well. In Q4 of 2020, Nintendo had its highest quarterly earnings since 2008. The Switch has also been helped greatly by the pandemic, as many people have been gaming. Now, there are rumors that Nintendo may be releasing a slight Switch refresh this year.

What new features will this Switch have?

So far, we don’t know of very many new features for this Switch at all. The only thing that we know about so far is the display. It would be cool if Nintendo released a new Switch at the same price with just a new display, but I think that most people would be happier with a better, more expensive Switch. At least we know that if Nintendo does release a new Switch, it will have a better display. And, this is a pretty good display. Sadly, it is the same resolution. It is quite strange that Nintendo would choose to keep the Nintendo Switch at 720p, because almost everything is at least 1080p at this point. But, this will be an OLED display, which is quite a bit better. We should now get better contrast ratios, and maybe even a higher refresh rate. This display is also slightly larger, at 7 inches compared to 6.2 inches. Having a larger screen on the Switch will also be a lot nicer, because the current Switch model has very thick bezels.

Will this actually release?

We don’t really know much about this new Switch at all. The only information that we have gotten on it is from Samsung Displays. They will start producing Switch displays such as the ones mentioned above in June. This is not yet enough information to confirm that there is a new Switch coming this year, but it is a good sign. If Nintendo wants to keep Switch sales up, they really need to refresh the lineup. It has been almost 5 years since the Switch first launched, which means that it is about time for a new model. Sony and Microsoft just released their new consoles a few months ago, so this new Switch should hopefully release sometime this year. I don’t see any other reason for Samsung Displays to be manufacturing Switch displays like this.
