The Nintendo Switch OLED is launching on October 8th, 2021 at $350 USD. The new Switch will have a larger, more vibrant 7.0 inch OLED screen, double the storage capacity (64 GB to 128 GB), and the ability to hardwire via a wired LAN port. While many gamers will enjoy this upgrade, this is not the Switch Pro many were hoping for.
