The Nintendo Switch Mini and Nintendo Switch Pro have been rumored and reported on in the industry since last year. To add to the rumor mill, a Forbes contributor recently posted an article talking about how Google Stadia would benefit from being on Nintendo Switch. In this article this Forbes contributor mentioned never before seen Nintendo Switch Mini information. According to him, the rumored Nintendo Switch Mini will deliver a 1080p mobile gaming experience. It is apparently built as a portable first Nintendo Switch. The Joycons will be locked to the main body of the Nintendo Switch Mini. This device will feature a better battery life, a 1080p display, and a meaningful upgrade to the graphics in mobile mode. He also mentioned the rumored Nintendo Switch Pro in this article, describing it as an upgraded standard Nintendo Switch. No further details were shared on the rumored Nintendo Switch Pro.
The new “mini” Nintendo Switch will take advantage of a two generations of die shrinks to its Nvidia Tegra processor to deliver 1080p mobile gaming to a broader audience. By joining the joycons to the main body of the Switch, Nintendo will squeeze out the expensive and sophisticated wireless joycons and create a mobile-first Switch platform. The die shrink of the Nvidia Tegra processor will provide better battery life and a meaningful upgrade to a 1080p display and graphics in mobile mode. The new mini Switch, and an upgraded standard Switch are poised to address a broader market and capitalize on their growing software and user base. But, there is another opportunity for Switch which has not yet come to light.
