The world expected a Nintendo Switch Pro with upgraded components but instead got the same console with a nicer display. There was a fairly sizable voice of disappointment across Twitter in the aftermath of the reveal, but nonetheless, this is a welcome upgrade to the original Switch (and the Switch Pro may still happen).
The OLED Switch (as you may have guessed from the name) upgrades the 6.2-inch LCD screen on the original model to a 7-inch OLED panel. Alongside this perk is a redesigned kickstand, “enhanced audio” for the built-in speakers, and an Ethernet port built into the dock.
