Nintendo has announced that the Switch will be getting an updated model in August, which will almost double the console’s current battery life. Docked Users aren’t affected, but for handheld users this is potentially a game changer. The estimated battery life is now 4.5 hours to 9.0 hours, going up from 2.5 hours to 6.5 hours. You can take a look at the battery comparisons below.
This updated Switch will launch in mid August in the USA, late August in Japan, and early September in Europe. Are you going to be picking up this new updated model? Let us know in the comments!
