Nintendo Switch has been a runaway success since the time it was launched a year and a half back and Nintendo now feels that its time for an update. As per the recent reports the company is looking at a new version of Nintendo Switch sometime next year.
The report suggests that the Switch saw record-breaking sales however since it seems the sales have dropped. To re-ignite the interest and boost sales, Nintendo may be looking to come up with a new portable gaming device with improved hardware specs similar to the Xbox One X or PS4 Pro.
As per the report, people from the supply chain and the ones who are “directly linked” to the project claims that Nintendo is still discussing the features and hardware specifications. It is being reported that the new model may share many features with the current version and could be compatible with existing Switch software.
In terms of what we should expect from the alleged upcoming Nintendo Switch is as unclear as it could get, however, prospects of getting a high-end OLED display may be out of the question. In terms of the launch date, the new Nintendo switch may launch around summer next year.
