News about the upgraded Switch began rumouring around 2018, with the rumour stating that Nintendo would swap out the LCD display for an OLED model. The upcoming console is said to be called the ‘Switch Pro’ with a 7-inch 720p OLED screen and NVIDIA Tegra graphics with DLSS that will enable it to output 4K to a TV.
Since the Switch launched there has been a few changes, which include the longer battery life and the Nintendo Switch Lite which both came out in 2019. Like many next-gen consoles the current Switch has been hard to get your hands on due to shortages in parts such as memory. Despite these shortages though, Nintendo’s suppliers are ‘confident’ that they can keep up with orders for the next-gen switch.
Bloomberg’s report stated ‘Production lines are better prepared for the potential component shake-up and the parts Nintendo is using are subject to less competition than those in its rivals’ more powerful consoles. Still, the company’s ability to meet consumer demand won’t be guaranteed.’
