It has already been four years since the Nintendo Switch first took the world by storm. Now, to take its place a new and upgraded Nintendo Switch Pro will soon be unveiled. Just in a few more weeks, gamers can finally set their eyes upon the latest gaming device developed by Nintendo. The unveiling will reportedly happen sometime before the E3 2021 (Electronic Entertainment Experience) which will take place around mid-July.
This annual expo hosted by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) will be the perfect opportunity for Nintendo and its partners to showcase their upcoming games. While fans will digitally experience this brand-new gadget, there will be a bit of a long wait as the first shipments could only start in July. More so due to the chip shortage that the industry is experiencing; production is only expected to hit its peak in the last three months of the year.
This means that gaming enthusiasts can expect the Nintendo Switch Pro for Christmas, but until then, good luck finding it in stores. In fact, the term ‘Pro’ is just what the press has been calling it as the actual name of the console has not yet been revealed and is kept under wraps.
While the name remains a mystery, the console’s specifications have been revealed. The new Nintendo Switch Pro will have a 7 inch Samsung OLED display and an even more powerful chip set from Nvidia that supports DLSS. There are speculations that screen resolution will be 720p for longer battery life.
The price tag for the so-called Pro is expected to cost a bit more than $300 which was the price tag for the original one. Once the Pro launches, Nintendo will be discontinuing the regular Switch while keeping the $200 Switch Lite as a cheaper alternative.
