Nintendo Switch XL: OLED screen, announcement 2021 - rumor

Nintendo Switch XL

"We won't be announcing a new version of the Nintendo Switch in the foreseeable future": Nintendo spoke up about rumors that were circulating a few weeks ago. That didn't change the fact that only shortly afterwards more alleged information about a Nintendo Switch Pro or Super Switch made the rounds - and now the new episode: The usually well-informed news site Bloomberg claims to have received more inside information and cites Nintendo Insider.

The most important supposed finding: Nintendo is changing the screen technology, and the screen is supposed to be bigger. Instead of a 6.2-inch LCD screen, the Nintendo Switch (buy now € 449.00) Pro, or possibly Nintendo Switch XL, should have an OLED screen with a 7-inch screen diagonal. The maximum resolution, on the other hand, should not change and continue to be 720p.

Nintendo Switch: The next livestream is running today

This afternoon, after Direct two weeks ago and Pokémon Presents last week, the next Nintendo livestream is already running. var lstExcludedArticleTicker = '1367997,1367989,1367892,1367886'; Also included in this leak: The information that the console will be able to output images in 4K on the television in dock mode, unlike the 1080p output of the normal switch. In this respect, the alleged insiders speak of a more powerful processor in the new switch model, although this point is not directly raised in the Bloomberg report. In the last leak it was mentioned that the Nintendo Switch Pro could rely on NVIDIA's DLSS technology, a deep learning method in which low-resolution images can be extrapolated and output in significantly higher quality. This is also a possibility here.

And how does that fit together with the fact that there will be no unveiling of a new switch in the foreseeable future? Well, unlike other leaks, it doesn't mean that the XL version of the Switch will necessarily appear in 2021. Instead, they just say that there will be an announcement this year, without limiting the time frame any further.

What do you think? Is there anything wrong with the Nintendo Switch Pro rumors this time around? Or will we still wait in 2025 for it to be finally announced now? Discuss in the comments!

Report: New Nintendo Switch model planned with bigger OLED screen, 4K output

Bloomberg published a report Wednesday with new details on the long-rumored new, more powerful Nintendo Switch model, dubbed the Nintendo Switch Pro by fans and players. The outlet first reported on the upgraded model of the Nintendo Switch in 2020, though reports have circulated for years.

According to the report, Samsung will soon begin production on “7-inch, 720p-resolution OLED panels” for the device. The new Nintendo Switch model will also ship with “4K ultra-high definition graphics when paired with TVs,” Bloomberg sources said. Nintendo and Samsung declined to comment on Bloomberg’s report.

Nintendo has repeatedly denied existence of the so-called Nintendo Switch Pro. Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser told Polygon in December that the company is “always looking” at how Nintendo can “improve the gameplay experience,” whether on the “current platform” or a “future platform.” Bowser also told Polygon that the Nintendo Switch is at the “midpoint of this life cycle

In February, during a financial earnings call, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said Nintendo would not be announcing an upgraded Nintendo Switch model “anytime soon.”

But Nintendo’s history includes plenty of upgraded models of existing platforms — like the New Nintendo 3DS XL. The company also has a bunch of games coming to its platform this year, many of which were announced during a February Nintendo Direct. Though there wasn’t an update on Nintendo’s upcoming Breath of the Wild sequel, there are a lot of games on the way.
