Nintendo has sure been busy alright. After announcing their Nintendo Switch Lite variant last week, Nintendo has now released an updated Switch version as well.

The new Nintendo Switch 2019 comes with an improved battery life and other minor changes. It’s now using an updated SoC called Mariko, which is rumored to be the same one used with the Switch Lite.

Mariko is a variation of the chipset used in the original one. Mariko is said to have a 16nm refresh compared to the 20nm one from the original. The NAND Flash memory has also been changed in the new version. It now has a reduced power consumption and is also made more efficient.

These changes has resulted in an increase to the Switch’s battery life.  To compare, the previous version was said to have a battery life of 2.5 to 6.6 hours only. Meanwhile, the new hardware promises to have 4.5 to 9 hours of battery life. It might seem like a small change but believe me, it’s a welcome improvement and I’m not complaining.

New Nintendo Switch Price Philippines

The new Nintendo Switch is expected to be released this August 2019. It is also said to be priced at USD 299 or around Php15,300 when directly converted. If the pricing holds up to be true, it would be priced the same with the original Switch version.

So if you’re looking to buy a Nintendo Switch, I would suggest holding out on it for now as we might be getting some discounted original Switch units soon as well.
