After months of speculation and a sea of rumors, Nintendo officially announced the next iteration of its popular game console: the Nintendo Switch OLED model. The upcoming device works more like a mid-life update than anything else, an improvement on the 2019 model as opposed to the more powerful “Switch Pro” that was rumored (and can still be launched).
On sale for $ 350 from October 8, the aptly titled Nintendo Switch OLED model is the next iteration of what has become one of the best-selling consoles in the last two years. It features a 7-inch 720p OLED display, a new dock with a wired Ethernet port and an improved kickstand that appears to take a signal directly from Microsoft̵
Still, the OLED model has a lot to get people excited about, including our own Alex Cranz. It plays all the same games, supports the original Joy-Cons and comes with an elegant black and white finish reminiscent of next generation consoles such as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S. It will also be available with red and blue Joy-Cons, if you prefers the original model.
Where can I buy the Nintendo Switch OLED model
If you want to grab the OLED-equipped switch at launch and get ahead of what could be another console shortage, you’re in luck. Right now, you can pre-order the white iteration of the upcoming $ 350 console at Walmart, Best Buy and Gamestop, although the latter is only available to Pro members at the moment. Pre-orders began at 15.00 ET / kl. 12 NPT today, and will probably sell out.
If you’re more of a traditionalist, you can also pre-order the red-blue model at Walmart, Best Buy and Gamestop, if you’re a Pro member, but none of the configurations are expected before the Nintendo Switch OLED model. officially on sale October 8th.
