It is a good step taken by Nintendo at the same time stiff competition face by the company because the launch of PS5 and Xbox series is on the way. The company yet has not confirmed the launch date of the console.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the company saw a significant upswing in sales, and it is expected that there would be postponements on any hardware production. However, in 2020, the switch has continued to sell like hotcakes with Animal Crossing: New Horizons driving millions of hardware buying. At the end of July, the company had sold more than 60 million units of switch console.
Now by considering the abundant sales of the switch in this year, the company would release a new switch at the beginning of 2021 with new Mini LED display tech and may including potential dual-screen support.
The switch will come with the following features:
- Nvidia Tegra Xavier processor

In the upcoming console model, the controller could get restructure, and the new display would be exchanged out for the current display panels presently being used by Nintendo. This switching would able to extend the switch’s battery life and improve graphics. The current model of the switch console uses an outdated chip. The upgrade in chip makes the switch to perform longer, faster and not heat up.
The switch is best for multiplayer because the games can often host up to four players and sometimes up to eight. In addition, the ability to quickly shift from single-player to multiplayer makes it the best option.
