Game news OLED switch: the dock with Ethernet port sold individually, Nintendo gives details

This week the big moment has finally come: a new Switch has been announced and it is finally … an OLED model. Among the main novelties, the presence of an Ethernet port long claimed on the dock: the latter just delivers a few details through Nintendo itself.

If we had all been talking about a Switch Pro for years now, Nintendo finally silenced the rumors a few days ago, revealing what it really was: it will therefore be an OLED Switch, including a screen with OLED technology (rather logical) and larger, to achieve 7 inch. The sound quality in portable mode will be improved in particular while the storage space will be enlarged, now reaching 64 GB against 32 GB previously.

Regarding the dock, that is to say the base where the machine can be implemented to be connected to a television, we will stay on a resolution of 1080p: however, a novelty will be integrated and this one concerns the presence of an Ethernet port, allowing you to connect the eponymous cable for a reliable and increased connection speed. A regretted addition to the original model which only had a WiFi module.

The good news, is that this dock will be fully compatible with the standard Switch model : we are then entitled to wonder if it will be sold separately, or if it will be necessary to buy the OLED Switch (at a price of 349 €) to benefit from it. Nintendo has just answered this question at the site’s microphone Digital Trends : the white or black version of the dock can be purchased individually, yes, but only on the official website My Nintendo.

The precious object will therefore not be available at traditional resellers. but only at Big N directly. And again, here are some other important details: there will be no HDMI cable, power adapter… and not even packaging. A rather surprising offer which does not yet have a price.

We remember without it that Nintendo Switch OLED will be released on October 8, 2021 for € 349.99. With its famous dock, therefore.
