Nintendo Switch with OLED Display announced, to arrive on October 8

Nintendo on Tuesday, July 6 announced a new, brighter, and larger variant to the Switch line, compared to the previous model which only had a 6.2-inch display. Say hello to the Nintendo Switch OLED.

The Nintendo Switch OLED is now here and look what Nintendo has brought us to the table, a bigger OLED display of 7-inch. (If you don’t know, OLED displays are known for having vivid colors, brighter screens, and crisp contrast.) The resolution remains the same at 720p but it’s an overhaul compared to the aforementioned 6.2-inch.

The new Nintendo Switch (OLED model) will feature a wide adjustable stand for tabletop mode, along with a new dock that has a wired LAN port. It comes with 64GB of onboard storage, and enhanced audio ‘for handheld and tabletop play.’

“The new Nintendo Switch (OLED model) is a great option for players who want to experience the new vibrant screen when playing in handheld and tabletop mode,” said Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser.

The OLED Variant of the Nintendo Switch will go on sale (October 8) on the same day as the Metroid Dread game, the next installment of the 2D Metroid chronicle that kicked off with the original Metroid on NES. It is priced at $349.99 (~roughly PHP 17.4K), and sports two color options: an exclusive white set of the OLED switch which features white Joy-Con controllers, a black main unit, and a white dock, and a Neon Red or Blue one which features neon red and neon blue Joy-Con controllers, a black main unit and a black dock.

The Nintendo Switch OLED Edition is slated to release on October 8.
