Hobbies I guess this is big enough to post on here about..? A new Nintendo Switch model will come out Mid-August for the same price of $299.

Also, I’ve been getting SO many YouTube recommendations for tech channels talking about the new model, and I finally watched one https://youtu.be/dwHZ7Sz1-wY. Although it doesn’t say so on the official page, it does seem like the newer model also has a slightly brighter screen, as well as more accurate color. In the video they did a few tests on the screens, so it seems fairly reliable. In the image the new switch is on the bottom. Posted Edited by ProKuku

    This isn't the Switch Lite. It's just a Switch with more battery. It's not a smaller switch with all the good stuff removed that also happens to have improved battery life.

Programming Strength Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies To clarify a bit, this "new Nintendo Switch model" thing just means that eventually, when you buy a regular Switch, you'll get a slightly improved model with better battery life, instead of the launch model. It's not going to have a new name or anything, they're just replacing the original model. The box might not even be marked any differently. Posted

    Cool. I thought they would release it as a 'New Nintendo Switch' or something. Thanks for clarifying.

    . . .The box might not even be marked any differently.
    Supposedly, it will be marketed the same but will have a new box design differentiating it from the launch model. If not, you'll still be able to check the device's serial, located both on the unit and the box.

    Apparently this new model will use Sharp IGZO displays, which is apparently a big deal (I don't know anything about them) which could explain the better color and brightness. Also interestingly, the battery life improvement doesn't come from a new model of battery, but a new main board. The new board is a lot more energy efficient, but the battery is the same. Something similar was done with the Lite.

Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength All I have to say is, the model 3 Switch looks much better than the first two models. Yep! Nintendo released the second model without any announcement to fix a hardware exploit. That's all it did. Clearly not something that needs announcing. Posted

    Any way to know which model I have? Not planning to install homebrew on it any time soon, just curious.

    I don't think so but the second model was released around July 2018-ish so if you bought your switch after then it's probably a model 2 switch

    Got mine in 2017, so I guess I have model 1. Wish there was an easy way to upgrade, sounds like early owners are getting gypped here.
