Nintendo has finally announced a new Nintendo Switch model.

The Nintendo Switch OLED will start shipping on October 8, 2021, the same date as the new Metroid game arrives.

At $349.99, the Nintendo Switch OLED is priced just $50 more compared to the standard Switch model at $299.99.

The Nintendo Switch OLED is named so for its Organic Light Emitting Diode Display (OLED).

At 7 inches, the Nintendo Switch OLED also has a much larger screen compared to the traditional Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo confirmed that the Nintendo Switch OLED will play all the Nintendo Switch titles and will be compatible with existing Switch accessories.

While the Nintendo Switch OLED isn't the Nintendo Switch Pro, it is Nintendo's mid-gen upgrade that's long been a part of the rumor mill.
