What is known about the Nintendo Switch Pro
Although on previous occasions we had heard some rumors about the console, it has not been until now when a medium like Bloomberg has released the first details of the future release. And it is that they were the ones who pointed out last August that Nintendo had plans to develop a more powerful console, with which to complete the offer of its catalog.
Let’s remember that current models go through the original console, which was slightly updated to offer a more efficient processor and without the security hole that allowed third-party software to be installed so easily, and the small Switch Lite, with a single option to use it as portable and without the possibility of decoupling the joycons. This new unit would arrive to establish another step, which would satisfy the most demanding users and which would allow the leap to 4K. The question that remains to be resolved is whether it will be part of Nintendo’s current equation or will it establish a new generation, meaning the launch of new games completely exclusive for this new console.
What will the Switch Pro offer?
The details shared by the medium speak of a much more powerful console capable of offering 4K graphics, although this resolution would only be available when we connect the console in the dock. This measure would make a lot of sense, since the panel used would offer a 720 resolution lines in a size of 7 inches.
This screen would therefore be slightly larger than the current Switch, but the big change would come in terms of panel technology, since we would be talking about a OLED display. The use of an OLED panel would finally solve the very important brightness and contrast problems that the current Switch suffers outdoors.
In addition, taking into account that in laptop mode it would work at a lower resolution (perhaps the 720 native pixels of the screen), the processor could breathe better and improve energy consumption, so we would gain battery life.
When will it go on sale?
According to information from Bloomberg, the production of this new console would begin in the summer, since the screens would be ready to ship from the month of July. This plan would have the idea of being able to have the console ready for the Christmas campaign. Keep in mind that the shortage of components that Sony and Microsoft have suffered with their respective consoles could also play against Nintendo, but considering that we are talking about other processors and another manufacturer, everything could be ready in time.
What would we like to see in the new Switch Pro?
These first details seem quite attractive to us for the launch of the new model, however, we would still like to see a number of features and functions that we miss on the Switch. For example, the use of Bluetooth headphones, something that today is practically essential for many players, especially those who play online and use microphones to speak. It would not be too much to use the console as a multimedia platform in which to consume content and install applications, since functions such as live broadcasting could be carried out if a front camera is also included.
But we are not going to fool ourselves. Nintendo does not usually get into this type of game mechanics or complex ecosystems, and prefers to focus its experience in its own way, with fun and a completely different touch from the rest. This is what it has been doing in recent years, so we will see what they will be able to prepare for this Nintendo Switch Pro.
