Nintendo Switch 2 Tipped to Feature 8-inch Display, Launch in 2024

Nintendo Switch 2. The successor to the hugely popular Nintendo Switch is one of the most highly anticipated gaming devices. While not much was known about the Switch 2 so far, a credible new leak has shed light on its key detail – its display size.

As per Omdia analyst Hiroshi Hayase (via a Bloomberg report), the upcoming Nintendo Switch 2 will flaunt an 8-inch LCD. This would mark a significant jump from the 6.2-inch and 7-inch panels on the original Switch and OLED Switch models, respectively.

The report mentions that Hayase’s insights come from supply chain research focused on small and medium display panels. He further adds that the Nintendo Switch 2’s arrival later this year itself will potentially double the shipments of amusement displays in 2024.

Nintendo Switch 2 Tipped to Feature 8-inch Display

Looking back, 2024 was already tipped to be the launch timeline for Switch 2 as Nintendo showcased early hardware prototypes to developers last year. Leaks have also hinted at Nvidia’s new Tegra 239 chip being under the hood.

While the Switch 2 is said to miss out on Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) support, it could enable 1080p gameplay with ray tracing graphics. The console may also pack a more efficient processor based on a 5nm or 8nm fabrication process.

As for pricing, the Nintendo Switch 2 is expected to retail around $400 in the United States. This puts it at the same level as Valve’s Steam Deck. However, with a larger, high-resolution display and Nvidia’s latest silicon, the Switch 2 will be a major upgrade over its predecessor.

In summary, key takeaways from the Switch 2 leak include an 8-inch screen. Nvidia’s new Tegra SoC, 1080p gaming with ray tracing, and pricing around $400. As Nintendo is maintaining silence, readers are advised to digest this information with skepticism until official confirmation.
