Nintendo Switch OLED: the Switch bigger

The main features of the traditional Switch released in 2017 have been taken over.

This new version has a screen to which detachable joysticks are connected, the Joy-Con.

It can swap its screen with that of a television and give access to the game in multiplayer.

It also has a docking station so you don't leave it lying around.

However, this new edition has some solid differences.

The most notable concerns its screen.

Larger, its size is now 7 inches, against 6.2 inches on the 2017 version (5.5 inches on the Lite version).

It also changes technology, opting for OLED technology, reputed to be richer in color.

Its edges are slightly thinner.

The device therefore promotes immersion by offering a more contrasted and more pleasant image.

Some other lighter modifications are to be noticed on the OLED Switch.

Maximum storage has been increased from 32 GB to 64 GB. At the back of the console, the bracket is wider, offering more stable support.
