Nintendo Switch 2 Allegedly Has an 8-Inch LCD Screen and Will Release This Year
Nintendo’s upcoming console, the rumoured Switch 2, is anticipated to feature a sizable 8-inch LCD screen, according to analyst Hiroshi Hayase. Expected to hit the market this year, the Switch 2 is projected to drive a significant increase in shipments for ‘amusement displays.’
Hayase, an analyst specializing in small and medium displays, relies on checks within the supply chain for annual shipment forecasts. The credibility of his claim is underscored by his expertise in the display market.
If the speculated 8-inch screen materializes, it will mark a substantial increase compared to the current Switch models. The standard Switch boasts a 6.2-inch LCD screen, while the Switch OLED features a 7-inch OLED display. The Switch Lite, designed for handheld gaming, has a smaller 5.5-inch screen.
Nintendo has not officially commented on these rumours, but the anticipation surrounding the launch of the Switch successor remains high. The potential introduction of a larger display aligns with Nintendo’s history of enhancing gaming experiences with each console iteration. Gamers eagerly await further details as the expected release draws nearer in 2024.
