Although Nintendo announced the Switch with an OLED screen back in June, there have been no actual photos of the console so far. But recently, the company’s store in Tokyo and some electronics chains, such as Yodobashi Camera, put samples on display. Users have already shared their first photos.
The new version of the console is more reminiscent of what the Switch should have been back in 2017. Although the bezels around the screen still take up a decent portion of the console, the console has a more modern look.

The new model will differ from the usual Nintendo Switch with a seven-inch screen, wide adjustable support, improved sound and a LAN connector. The OLED model will have 64 gigabytes of internal storage. In addition to the white version, there will also be a black one with classic red and blue joycones. Players will also be able to purchase a protective shield and carrying case.
For Switch OLED in Russia they ask for 30,499 rubles. Released on October 22.
