Nintendo Switch Pro is coming with a 7-inch OLED and 4K capabilities
There was a notion once that smartphones will kill the handheld console, and although we saw the demise of some machines, one portable console has been going strong in the past few years. That’s right, it’s the Nintendo Switch! The gaming behemoth Nintendo has sold around 80 million Switch units since 2017, and it seems that the time has come for a refresh.

According to Bloomberg sources, Nintendo plans to launch a next-generation Switch this year, and it might be called the Switch Pro. The console will sport a 7-inch OLED screen and will have the capability to output 4K resolution graphics. The hardware specs of the new Switch are still a mystery but according to Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa, the time has come to update the console.

“With Nintendo Switch about to begin its fourth year, the situation does feel a little different from the home consoles we’ve offered in the past,” Furukawa said in January. “In terms of hardware, I think we will be able to consider a variety of ways to expand in the future.”

The original Switch featured a 6.2-inch LCD, and the Switch Lite went for an even smaller 5.5-inches display, so a larger OLED panel would be more than welcome. OLED technology is also more efficient and battery-friendly, which is a big plus when we’re talking about a portable console. The Bloomberg sources also hinted that the new Switch would launch along with some new game titles as well.
