This would also mean an upgrade in the price. Since it is a hybrid console and has a few limitations, its price is considerably low than most consoles in the market. The current base model of the Switch Pro comes at a price tag of $299.

According to the reports, the new upgraded console will wipe out the current Switch model from the market and take its place. The budget Switch Lite will remain in retail along with the new upcoming Switch.

First, there is no confirmation on the name. Whether it will get the tag ‘Pro’ or be called Switch 2 is unclear. But the recent leaks suggest exciting upgrades for gamers. The new Switch will allegedly sport an OLED 7-inch display from Samsung.

Further, Nvidia will help provide 4k gaming capabilities to the hybrid console. The recent dearth of chips in the market that has affected PS5 and Xbox will probably not influence Switch. Nintendo has teased a new upcoming gaming console and if the leaks are to be believed, it is an upgraded Switch coming this September.

It might just be an entirely new console that the Japanese company is designing, but do not rule out the chances of Switch getting an upgrade just yet. Lookout for E3 2021 for more information.
