German leaker Roland Quandt shared a Twitter image of a supposedly smaller Nintendo Switch called Switch Mini. In addition to the console itself, the image includes a plastic cover, one of the first accessories.
As you can see from the picture, this Nintendo Switch Mini would be a version without detachable commands. However, they are likely to retain the ability to dock the console and play on a television, one of Switch's most appealing features.
Moreover, the console seems to keep more or less the same design with the location of the buttons and the analog joysticks. The screen does not appear to display frames, which suggests a larger viewing space than the current switch.
Nintendo has yet to officially release new consoles
There are several rumors about the release of 'Nintendo Switch 2' and even a Mini version. Following the E3 2019 video game fair, the Wall Street newspaper published a report suggesting the development of new consoles.
This report was based on switching production of Switch consoles out of China due to a possible increase in customs duties. In any event, Nintendo has not confirmed any of this information in confidence.
2020 could be a massive year for the console industry
The new Xbox and PlayStation 5 have speculated releases for 2020. Therefore, it would be commercially smart for Nintendo to release Switch's sequel at the same time as competing consoles.
Roland Quandt has a long reputation for providing the right images and technology information. That said, if you want to invest in a Nintendo Switch, you might want to be a little more patient and wait for the news.
