The newest OLED model offers not only a bigger screen size, better resolution, deeper contrast, and longer battery life, but also an incredibly useful ethernet port for connecting your screen to the internet, as well as Bluetooth capabilities to connect the console to wireless headphones. These upgraded capabilities address many complaints made by previous Switch players who found the original Switch lacking in battery life, stable internet connections, and screen size, making its $50 increase in price more than worth it for Nintendo fans.
What to remember from the Nintendo Switch OLED
- A better quality OLED screen, but also larger for better immersion
- An improved dock as well as internal memory
- A still hybrid console and the large catalog of games on Nintendo eShop
- And the same Tegra X1 + chip as the classic version

A different and more enjoyable experience thanks to the OLED panel
This new console is based on its screen which now gives way to OLED against LCD previously. A real godsend to take advantage of the infinite contrasts, which we are already used to appreciating on a smartphone. Once in hand, we feel that she has slightly gained weight with 23 grams more. Once in hand, it is surprising to have a Switch with the same dimensions while the screen appears much larger. And for good reason, the OLED Switch has a diagonal of 7 inches against 6.2 for the first generation. We no longer find the large borders that surrounded the screen, now they are thinner. Thanks to this gain, the experience becomes totally different and promises a better immersion in the game. And do not worry, if the screen widens you can still add the joy-con of your classic Nintendo Switch, because the console keeps roughly the same size.
The console dock has also been changed. It offers a new white color which makes its effect, and sees its edges more rounded on the upper part. At the back, we appreciate the addition of an Ethernet port to be able to enjoy a better connection for your online games, once the console is in its docking station. And for those who enjoy their party together on the table, you will be more than happy to learn that this OLED version now has a much stronger kickstand than the first models. You will not be afraid to unfold it, the support is less fragile since it extends over the entire length of the console, like Microsoft Surface Pro tablets. This brings real comfort and allows you to better adjust it to find the right angle of view. Note that the internal storage is doubled to reach 64 GB.
No change in processor
The Nintendo Switch OLED is therefore not the long-awaited Pro model. It is therefore not surprising that the latter embeds the same Tegra X1 + chip of the 2019 model, ensuring better autonomy management than the 2017 version. Unfortunately this hybrid console does not offer a definition in 4K, we are finally on 1080p, and 720p on the console itself.
