You are thinking of buying a console Nintendo Switch? Great reviews Fire Emblem Three Houses and Super Mario Maker 2 do not let you sleep at night? Have you already deposited cash? Wait. Hang out until September. Your patience will then be rewarded with an improved model with a much more efficient battery. At the same price!
A smaller, much cheaper console Nintendo Switch Lite is not the only interesting novelty in the hardware wing of the Great N. At the same time with the premiere of Lite Japanese Japanese are improving the basic version of the console. It is a model sold with a docking station that can be connected to the TV and which features retractable wireless Joy-Cons.
Nintendo Switch it will soon gain greater battery performance
An improved version of the Switch is entering the world without any fanfare, no big pump and noisy announcements. Nothing new in the gaming industry. Consoles are updated many times in terms of hardware, which the customer often has no idea. Modules are changed, the most defective parts are replaced by components from other manufacturers and so on. The changes are evidenced by the code number marked in small print on the box. Modifications are usually so insignificant that they are not specifically communicated.
In the case of the Nintendo Switch, however, we are dealing with an exceptional situation. Modification in hardware allows achieving much, much better results. From the customer's point of view, the difference between the console purchased before September 2019 and from September 2019 is fundamental and fundamental. Therefore, it is really worth showing patience and withholding several dozen days of purchase. What will we gain from it?
The improved version of the Switch works in wireless mode by as much as 30 – 40 percent. longer!
The new console model has already hit the market in the US, Australia and Hong Kong. The first owners conducted tests at home, which show a gigantic performance difference. When an older version of the console Nintendo Switch works in wireless mode for 3.5 hours, the newer version works in the same mode up to 5.5 hours. For both models, the time was running with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
A jump from 3.5 hours to 5.5 hours is a great achievement. Extended operation time by over 30% it is something that a potential consumer cannot pass by indifferently. Since both versions of the console cost the same, it would be a sin not to wait several dozen days for a model running on one charge up to 2 hours longer. Ba, as the owner of the premiere version of Switch I wonder myself whether to get a newer version of the Nintendo console. This from August is available for purchase in the US, in turn, it will appear on the European market in September.
A new, better console model Nintendo Switch – how to recognize him?
This time you will not need to check the serial numbers in small print. New console version Nintendo Switch is sold in a characteristic red box. For comparison, the older model is distributed in a box with a dominant white. This alone is enough to recognize from a distance whether the store has a new version of the Nintendo console.
Nintendo Switch: old version…
… and a new version with a longer battery life
Some US stores call the upgraded version of the console Nintendo Switch v2. Such product labels could be found, among others on the GameStop network. It is not known, however, whether Polish stores will also follow this lead. Fortunately, the red box alone is enough to recognize a model with a better energy management system. At the same time, it is worth noting that apart from the box and the modification in the Tegra system, the new model is no different from the older model. The first tests show that it is exactly the same console with the same parameters.
New console version Nintendo Switch it should cost exactly the same as the current model.
