Nintendo is releasing a new Nintendo Switch OLED Model for their upcoming blockbuster, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which will be available alongside the game.
The Nintendo Switch OLED Model is an upgrade from the original Nintendo Switch, in a similar vein to how the PS4 Pro improves upon its predecessor. It features a 7-inch OLED screen, enhanced audio, a wide adjustable stand, and a dock with a wired LAN port. It can still be played the same way as the previous model: system docked, in handheld mode with the Joy-Con controllers attached, and in tabletop mode if you don’t have a TV available.
