Nintendo has unveiled a new version of the popular Nintendo Switch console, but this new take on the famous handheld console is far from rumor.
Rumor has it that there is already a new model for Nintendo’s latest handheld console, namely “Pro”, which seems to be released every month. However, it looks like that day has finally arrived, but I’m afraid things have not turned out the way we all wanted.
Nintendo announced a new version Nintendo Switch referred to as the “OLED model”. This console features a “7” bright OLED display, “wide adjustable stand”, a wired LAN port on the base, 64GB of internal storage and an enhanced audio system. The stand can also be further adjusted for an “optimal viewing angle”.
So far, so good. The problem is that this OLED switch is not, anywhere near, nowhere, a “Pro” version of a regular switch, contrary to how many rumors have been created. The OLED version supports all previous Joy-Con models, all previous games and can be used on TV, desk and handheld. In other words, you won’t be left out if you can’t grasp this version (or just want to ignore it).
If you dig deeper into the specs, it weighs 322 grams (422 if you count the included Joy-Cons) and uses the well-known NVIDIA Custom Tegra processor. The 7-inch OLED screen supports a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and displays up to 1080 pixels via HDMI in TV mode. So again, nothing here indicates that we are talking about the Switch Pro console. You can charge it via USB-C and even use the same microSD cards as always. The claimed battery life is 4.5 to 9 hours, charging time is three hours.
The Switch OLED model will launch on October 8, 2021 (which coincides with the release date of Metroid Dread) and will be available in two flavors: a white kit and a Joy-Con kit with classic shades of red and blue. … In the US, the console is known to be priced at $ 349 (about € 295 at current exchange rates), which is $ 50 more than the original Switch.
About site SamMobile believes that the new component for digital printing could be Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max, the most advanced in the world for this kind of task. It is generally ten times faster than the 2nd generation 3D Sonic found in Galaxy S21 Ultra and S22 Ultra. The part should also have five times better accuracy and can scan a 20mm x 30mm area, allowing up to two fingers to be used at the same time for greater security.
Qualcomm’s new scanner can be enrolled with just one touch, meaning it will no longer be necessary to position the finger in various ways on the reader until it is fully captured, which will also save user time. However, it is worth remembering that none of this information has been confirmed by Samsung.
Other rumors raised by the publication also indicate that the Galaxy S23 may have a processor. Snapdragon 8 Generation 2 and a Super AMOLED E6 LTPO 3.0 type screen, one of the most advanced to date. I would still count on the unpublished WiFi 7which tends to be more stable and faster than the previous one, and a 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP2 camera sensor, but only in the “Ultra” version of the device.
One published report In early October, it was indicated that the Galaxy S23 Ultra, due in 2023, could have a 5,000mAh battery and up to 12GB of RAM.
The Epic Games Store has already established a tradition Give away free games every Thursdaybut it looks like the platform is creating an even more interesting new culture by running daily giveaways during the Christmas period, as it has done for the past three years.
Although the platform has yet to confirm that it intends to repeat the dose, the leak seems to have finally rekindled fans’ hopes.
According to Dealabs user billbil-kun, who has repeatedly correctly reported free games from the Epic Games Store, PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass, the Epic Games Store repeat last year’s feat by hosting daily free games in the run-up to Christmas.
In 2019, the Epic Games Store gave away 12 games before Christmas, and in 2020 and 2021, 15 free games were given away during that period.
When asked about the possibility of distribution of a new wave of games this year, Billbil-kun said that the offer will be valid from December 15 to January 10, 2023.
It’s worth noting that the platform started giving away Star Wars: Squadrons this week, but given the games distributed over the Christmas period in previous years, it looks like we’re in for some big surprises.
Despite the credibility of the source of information, we must treat this information as a rumor until it is officially confirmed.
What games would you like Epic to distribute this Christmas?
