New Nintendo Switch Model Reportedly Coming Next Year

According to The Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is planning to release a new verison of it’s console-handheld hybrid next year.

Sources told the publication that active discussions are underway about new hardware and software functionality and the costs to implement them in a potential redesign. Sources also indicated the new Switch model could arrive in the second half of 2019, and maybe as early as summer.

While this isn’t a Switch 2 or anything like that, it could still be a substantial upgrade over the existing model. Some features on the table include an upgraded screen closer to those found in “more recent smartphone LCDs” and an increased battery life. Of course, price is still a limiting factor, so don’t expect a high-end OLED display or a significant boost in processing power.

Regardless, it will be interesting to see what exactly Nintendo has in store for the first revision of its smash hit console.
