Nintendo's worst-kept secret of the year is finally official.
Launches September 20.
Here's a breakdown of the differences between Switch Lite and OG Swtich from Nintendo's website:
- Joy-Con are part of the system and cannot be removed - handheld mode only - will play Switch games that support Handheld mode - for games that do not support handheld mode, players can wirelessly connect compatible controllers - does not include HD Rumble or IR Motion Camera - the left-hand controller features a full-on d-pad - Not compatible with Nintendo Switch dock. - Does not support output to a TV. - does not come with a dock, HDMI cable or kickstand. - 3.6” high, 8.2” long, .55” deep, vs. the original Switch being 4” high, 9.4” long, .55” deep (with Joy-Con attached) - Approximately .61 lbs, vs. the original Switch being .88 lbs - 5.5" touch screen, vs. the original Switch having a 6.2" touch screen - Approximately 3 – 7 hours of battery life, vs. the original Switch having approximately 2.5 - 6.5 hours of battery life
New update, there will be a internal revision of the standard Switch with enhanced battery life coming in Aug/Sep for NA and Europe respectively. The belief is this has an upgraded chipset that can work at a lower voltage therefore increasing battery life.
