Nintendo announced a new Switch OLED model is coming October 8 , costing $350 USD. Though that’s just a few months away, preorders for the Nintendo Switch OLED aren’t available just yet, but listings are live at GameStop and Best Buy , which indicates preorders will likely open soon. You can already sign up for preorder email notifications at Best Buy, which is smart to do if you’re planning to buy this console–it’ll likely sell out.
Two editions of the Nintendo Switch OLED will be available to preorder. There’s a white and black model with a white dock and Joy-Cons. Nintendo will also release a neon red and blue set with a black dock that mirrors the original Switch scheme. The Nintendo Switch OLED releases the same day as the highly anticipated Nintendo Switch exclusive Metroid Dread .
Listings for the white and black model Nintendo Switch OLED are live at GameStop and Best Buy. It’s unclear when preorders will be available, though.
The updated Switch has several new features, most notably a 7-inch OLED screen. In addition to the upgraded and larger screen, the OLED Switch has 64GB of internal storage, twice the space of the standard Switch and Switch Lite. It also has a wider and adjustable stand as well as improved audio and a LAN port on the dock.
While the aforementioned features are improvements on the original, the console doesn’t have any performance upgrades. It will still run in 1080p resolution while docked, the same visual fidelity of the standard Switch. It also has the same CPU and RAM as well as battery life. Though the console is slightly larger than the original overall, it will still work with the launch model dock. All existing Joy-Con controllers are compatible with the OLED model, too.
Nintendo has already unveiled a new official carrying case and screen protector combo for the OLED Switch. While it seems likely that current carrying cases will fit the new Switch model, cases with very specific form factors may not fit the OLED Switch perfectly . We’d expect a slew of new third-party Switch carrying cases to be released later this year, too.
