Display supplier leak suggests a possible "Nintendo Switch Pro" is coming soon

Dagnabbit, I just got a switch in December. This is why procrastination can be a good thing (sometimes).


Same boat, just got one three weeks ago. I’ll just assume the larger display will mean even worse battery life and be content with what I have.

I kept meaning to get one but the stores here never have them in stock. So maybe I’ll get the new one?

You probably got it cheaper and without hardware bugs!

These rumors are coming literally every month. Also on Bloomberg, which I don’t see as credible source for video games anyway… Until Nintendo announces anything, this is just random guessing. And if they go on guessing, they will be right at some point.

Haha, yes, that’d be by me procrastinating to begin with. Even got the lovely pastel-colored Animal Crossing edition because I waited so long!

It’d be an unusual move for Nintendo; they have a decades-long commitment to sturdy, plasticky hardware with mediocre-to-bad displays, and they don’t bring out aspirational luxury versions of their stuff.

I could believe they’re making a Switch focused on longer battery life, though, and an OLED panel might make sense for that, if it’s not too expensive.

Admittedly, New 3DS was a better version of the 3DS (suddenly the 3D actually worked :smiley:) … but then your last sentence is exactly on-spot in comparison.
