After many rumors, Nintendo has finally announced the new model of the Switch. All fans expected a huge leap in this version that will face the latest generation of consoles, and although this was not the case, the screen has been significantly improved with OLED technology. But what are its advantages? We tell you below.
What is OLED?
You’ve probably heard this term before when they describe the TV screens or those of your high-end mobile devices, and thanks to its integration into the Nintendo console we’ll detail the keys to this interesting technology.
The first thing to be clear is that OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode, and by saying that the screen or the Nintendo Switch has it, we are describing the type of high-tech panel used in the device to display whatever is on it. See: light, colors and pictures in general.

What is the difference between OLED and other technologies?
There are other types of panels on the market such as CRT (cathode ray tube), LED (light-emitting diode), LCD (liquid crystal display) or QLED (quantum dot), however, OLED can offer better results in most cases.
If we compare the technology that the Nintendo Switch will receive with others, we can say without problem that OLED screens offer lower power consumption, better picture quality and much faster response times (the latter is a perfect addition when it comes to video games.).
Why did this technology come to the Nintendo Switch?
The first models of the console featured a 6.2-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen, acceptable for a few years. However, a hardware update was already necessary and what’s even better is a 7-inch OLED panel, which will improve the visual quality of what the switch shows.
This resolution seeks to deliver superior image quality in console games and, above all, improve the experience of its users when used in portable mode.
