Nintendo Switch Lite Might Not Be Fully Playable for Some Games

There were rumours on a new Nintendo Switch model being in development for quite some time now. It’s expected to be a more powerful version of the existing one. Now, more details have surfaced thanks to Taipei-based publication, Economic Daily News.

Report Suggests New Nintendo Switch Model In The Works 19

According to Economic Daily News, there is expected to be a new Nintendo Switch model in the works. It’s expected to have hardware-based improvements, including an improved display, and “upgraded interactivity”. While the former would point towards a potential boost in CPU / GPU power, the latter portion sounds vague at best.

With that being said, there is expected to be notable improvements, which includes getting rid of the Joy-Con drift issue once and for all. If what Economic Daily News reports is accurate, then this new Nintendo Switch model is expected to enter into production sometime this year with an estimated release window of Q1 2021.

This may be a little odd given that Nintendo’s fiscal year starts and ends in March, while Q1 2021 would suggest anywhere between January and March 2021. With that being said, we can interpret it as entering the production phase anything between now until March 2021, with a release window going no later than end of June 2021. Why? Because if we count by Nintendo’s fiscal year, March to June 2021 is considered as Q1 2021.

For now, there have been no official confirmations made yet so do take this information with a grain of salt. We will be reporting more on this as soon as information becomes available so stay tuned.


Pokdepinion: Better hardware is great and all but I’m not sure if I really need it since it already plays fine on its own, at least for me. If it has better battery life, then maybe I might just consider.
