Not so long ago, we reported rumors that Nintendo is not just working on two new switch models – a & # 39; Lite & # 39; version that seems to appeal to the younger one Concentrated end of the market, and a & # 39; Pro & # 39; & # 39; Edition with advanced features.
Now, the Japanese business journal Nikkei has offered some more nuggets of info. In terms of the "low-cost" version, Nikkei again supports the Wall Street Journal's reports, explaining how this system will be cheaper and more portable. It also mentions how the smaller system will be released this fall and can still be played on a TV using a dock. This contradicts earlier rumors that the "Switch Lite" is claimed to be not playable .
However, it is the part of the report that refers to the more powerful model that may be more interesting:
Alongside the smaller, budget-oriented model is the development of the revised next-generation model that replaces the model is currently available. Among other things, Nintendo is experimenting with a number of different things for the device, including usability, improved image rendering, and operating system changes. However, one source of development claims that it is still unclear who will take over the conceptual development of the new console at the company.
It seems that Nintendo is still largely undecided on which direction the Pro model should take, and the wording suggests that the Lite variant will first hit the market. The wording also makes this more powerful version a real successor to Switch ̵
