Nintendo ups its Switch game with big OLED screen

New model comes after a banner year when pandemic fueled play-at-home demand

The new version of the Nintendo Switch features an OLED screen capable of displaying vivid colors.

OSAKA -- Nintendo announced Tuesday an improved Switch game system with a larger, better screen and more internal memory than the current versions.

The so-called OLED model of the Switch is due out Oct. 8. It boasts a 7-inch screen, up from the 6.2-inch LCD of the original Switch. But thanks to the new model's smaller bezel, both systems are roughly the same size.
