The news was this morning that Nintendo would be releasing a new model of the Nintendo Switch called the Nintendo Switch OLED. In the announcement, the company explained that it was a review with a new screen and other improvements, but many wanted to know if it also provided more power and kept Nintendo a secret. The company has already clarified this situation.
You know, in recent months, rumors about a Switch review sounded strong and it was believed that it would support 4K and other hardware improvements. Now that Nintendo has confirmed the OLED Switch, none of it has been said, many wondering what’s going on.
Now, Nintendo has sent out a statement to the media confirming that the Nintendo Switch OLED will have practically the same internal components as its older brothers. So, the internal difference is that it will have more storage space by providing 64GB to store your games.
«The Nintendo Switch (OLED model) does not have a new processor or more RAM compared to previous Nintendo Switch models,» a Nintendo spokesperson said.
In other words, it means you should forget about the Nintendo Switch OLED as a 4K capable machine. In the end, it’s going to be like the Nintendo Switch you probably already have, so games will work the same and if seen better it will be thanks to the OLED display and all it has to offer.
