The new Nintendo Switch OLED model is now available for pre-order at select retailers, this iteration of Nintendo’s popular console will release on October 8th, 2021.Check out Nintendo’s official announcement for the Switch OLED model below.While this OLED model might not be the much sought-after Switch Pro you were hoping for, it does sport some slight upgrades to the console’s hardware. The OLED screen will make your games pop with much more vibrant colors, and it is coming in at just over 7 inches as opposed to the 6.2 inches of previous Switch models. However, the OLED model is also about 0.71 pounds, a bit heavier than the original Switch’s 0.66 pounds. It also has 64GB worth of internal storage (double that of the original Switch) and 9 hours’ worth of battery life. There’s a new wide adjustable stand as well, so the console won’t tip over as easily while undocked.The prices are rather steep no matter how you slice it, especially since Nintendo isn’t addressing the colossal issue of joy-con drift with the OLED Switch — far and away the console’s biggest problem that many people are resolving themselves since Nintendo won’t. Which is a huge bummer for those of us hoping drift might become a thing of the past.
