Nintendo has been hard at work in recent months, and fans of the company will enjoy the latest announcement. After revealing the Nintendo Switch Lite, a version optimized for gaming on the go and a lower entry price, Nintendo has showcased a new, improved Nintendo Switch version which is more akin to the original iteration, but with a few improvements that make it even better.
The new Nintendo Switch model will be released in the following weeks, and you can find more information about it in the following lines.
New Nintendo Switch model to have an improved battery
One of the most significant drawbacks of a portable device comes from the fact that it runs on a limited amount of power. The original Nintendo Switch model came with a relatively generous autonomy, ranging between 2.5 to 6.5 hours of actual playtime according to the company.
The revised model will offer a more extended autonomy, from 4.5 to 9 hours, which is higher than the one provided by the Nintendo Switch Lite, which prides itself on improved playtime amount.
Unlike the Nintendo Switch Lite, this is not an entirely new Nintendo Switch model, as it is similar to one of the improved “Slim” versions offered by Sony during the age of the PS2 and PS3. It does come with altered components, a trait which may have required a new FCC filing.
It is essential to keep in mind that the complexity of the title influences battery life. The spectacular title Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most demanding ones, and it will require more power in comparison with a more modest indie game. Some factors, among which we can count the brightness of the screen and powerful network features are can influence the amount of energy which is needed.
