After years of speculation, Nintendo has officially revealed the Nintendo Switch (OLED model). It is both larger and more advanced than the company’s existing Switch and Switch Lite. So, let’s have a look at the specifications, features, and expected price of the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) in Nepal.
Nintendo Switch (OLED model) Overview:
Design and Display
The most noticeable upgrade, obviously, is the new 7-inch OLED panel. Now, you can be assured that you’ll get deeper blacks and more vibrant colors than standard displays. However, Nintendo has still opted to limit the display resolution to 720p.
At the back, you get a wider adjustable kickstand that extends to the entire bottom part to better support its weight. It should allow you to enjoy the content from multiple viewing angles.
