Nintendo Switch is one of the best selling consoles out there and people have been hyped for a sequel for a while now. The device has been rendered by Letsgodigital.org, who also published some details about specs, including 4K support.
Nintendo Switch 2 is expected to arrive in the first half of 2019. The source of the info is Japanese site Gamepedia, claiming that Nintendo is going to implement a new SoC, that will give a bump up in game performance. The memory grows from 4 GB to 8 GB RAM. Storage goes from 32 GB to as much as 128 GB. Nintendo Switch will have 4K graphics, but my guess is that it’ll output 4K to a TV, rather than have it on the screen.
I say that it has a Full HD resolution on its own screen. The 6.2 inch screen could also need some growth, since even the iPhone XS Max has a bigger diagonal. Portability is still key and we should also get new generations of Joy Cons. Nintendo is expected to opt for LCD, not OLED, considering the high demand for that panel, which is hard to come by.
The good news is that we’ll also get backwards compatibility, so you can pay existing games on the new system. I could also do with higher quality materials and better way of attaching joysticks.
