New Nintendo Switch adds bigger OLED: Here's what we know

Tech Industry
Speaker 1: Nintendo has a brand new OED switch coming in October. Here's what you need to know. Speaker 1: Nintendo was expected to have a whole new switch sometime between this year and next. And all of a sudden Nintendo just randomly announced the news and it's called Nintendo switch OED. That's not very exciting, but it sets expectations for what this switch is. It's really all about a new ELA display, [00:00:30] which is a little bigger and should be CRISPR and brighter looking, but doesn't have a new resolution. So seven inches is the size of this OELA display, which is what we expected less bezzle around the edges. It looks like, and Ole displays do have better black levels and do look brighter, but doesn't look like it's going to have a higher resolution display should still be seven 20 P. The other thing about this switch is that has an improved kickstand, the original switch at a terrible kickstand. If you prop your switch up on a table, [00:01:00] this new vegetable kickstand looks promising. Speaker 1: There's also upgraded storage on the internal storage on the switch. Um, 64 gigabytes versus 32 on the original, but really you're gonna put a micro SD card in there, right? You should. And the other thing that's new on the switch is better audio. There are new speaker that should have a better audio experience when you're playing it in handheld mode. But you know, a lot of people keep that switch docked. And a lot of people use headphones [00:01:30] and we haven't listened to the audio yet. Finally, there is a wired ethernet port on the dock now. So if you don't want to connect over wifi, you really wanted that feature. You can do that. Now, these aren't really very exciting upgrades and really it's all about that display. Here are the things that we didn't get. We didn't get a brand new chip. It looks like. So don't expect any new graphics upgrades. There isn't any 4k gaming on a TV. It looks to still be 10 80 P on a TV, seven [00:02:00] 20 P on the handheld. Speaker 1: We did not get new Joycons JoyCon have had drift problems for a lot of people and they don't have analog triggers and they don't feel as great as Xbox series X or PlayStation five controllers. I was really hoping for a JoyCon upgrade. But one thing is that you can plug your old Joycons into the new switch. We don't know what type of chip this is specifically. [00:02:30] So stay tuned on that. And also, would it run any quieter with a fan kick in as much? We don't know, same battery life, according to Nintendo 4.5 to nine hours. So compared to the dockable switch, it should be also apparently no Bluetooth audio doesn't seem like there's any mention of any upgrade to allow you to use your AirPods or something else, which is ridiculous. In 2021, you have to plug in headphones, Jack, to be able to use your headphones. Speaker 1: [00:03:00] So should you get it? I mean, if you're getting a brand new switch for an extra $50, it sounds like all those features are worth it, but it's not really a new new switch. This is an iteration, a variant Nintendo does this with their handheld game systems, the Gameboys and the DSS and the 3d SS. We Don know when Nintendo will announce its next version of the switch or will this be it for a while or it be some sort of a switch pro. So if you're laying down $350, obviously it'd be disappointing if [00:03:30] you waited and then found that there was another one around the corner. I do think if you're getting a new switch, I would lean towards getting the OED version. But if you already have a switch, it doesn't, it sound like a reason to upgrade at all. We'll find out more when we actually get our hands on one and get to use one at some point, that's the news on the Nintendo switch and I'm a little disappointed. Speaker 2: So what did you think about the ed version? Speaker 3: I kinda thought [00:04:00] I was kind of hoping for like a smaller pocket size switch, but it was actually bigger, a bigger screen, bigger pixels. Speaker 2: So did you like that? Speaker 3: Not really. Speaker 2: You wanted like smaller? Speaker 3: Yeah. I was hoping for something kind of like a TDS. Speaker 2: Oh, that would be a cool idea. No, they didn't make that.
