This article will cover everything you need to know about where to pre order the Nintendo Switch OLED ahead of its upcoming release, and where to buy the Nintendo Switch OLED when it comes out. We will discuss the price of the new console, its release date, and list all the available links to retailers selling it across the US, Canada, the UK, and elsewhere in Europe.

Rumors regarding a new, beefier Nintendo Switch started to circulate as early as 2019 – with internet forums bubbling with anticipation after leaks of new components for an upgraded Switch console started to surface.

Before its official unveiling, fans dubbed the new Switch the Nintendo Switch Pro. First reports suggested that the console would offer up 4K gaming support and a 1080p screen, alongside new internal components and additional power. And whilst many were expecting an official unveiling at E3 in 2021, it came and went without a sniff of information regarding a new console. However, it wasn’t long after – on July 6, 2021 – that Nintendo finally dropped the news of the Nintendo Switch OLED.

 

What Is The Nintendo Switch OLED?

The Nintendo Switch OLED will be the fourth version of Nintendo’s hybrid console. Like its predecessors, it can be used either plugged into your tv set as per a conventional console or as a portable handheld device with its own in-built display.
