Nintendo is unquestionably releasing the $200 Switch Lite handheld console on September 20th and may release a higher-end console soon too, if rumors are to be believed. Its plans might even go exceeding all that, however. The corporate is reportedly working on further updates past these models “to make the platform’s lifecycle long,” according to WSJ sources inside the corporate.
Sharp VP Katsuaki Nomura could have also revealed extra about more about the show technology within the upcoming Switch(es). He said it would supply its IGZO show panels to a videogame client assumed to be Nintendo, based on an earlier WSJ report.
These panels are used in Sharp’s high-end 8K TVs and Aquos smartphones just like the dual-notch R2. The Switch Lite could have a 720p screen, but the rumored higher-end model might pack in more pixels. It isn’t clear if each of one of the new models will use Sharp’s IGZO show tech.
Nintendo has already stated that it will solely release one console, the Switch Lite, ahead of the holidays. However, it may unveil further plans on the September 20th launch or make announcements afterward. At the moment, demand for Switch consoles seems unstoppable, and the Switch Lite should give it a big Christmas sales present. Other consoles would put a bow on it.
