Nintendo has surprised gamers with a fresh model of its highly popular Switch and the new one features an OLED display. Though the device seems to be pretty new, sadly, the CPU and the RAM remain the same as the ones used in other models of the gaming console.

The Verge reported Nintendo had confirmed to it that “Nintendo Switch (OLED model) does not have a new CPU, or more RAM, from previous Nintendo Switch models.” Nintendo has not yet mentioned anything relevant with respect to upgrades in the said departments in its video announcement, marketing page of the new device, or in its official page unveiling the specs of the device. As a result, it is obvious that the CPU and the RAM won’t get an upgrade, for at least now. The console company also informed The Verge that the new model of the Switch is compatible with the interchangeable docks of the older models. Likewise, the older models can comfortable sit in the dock provided with the new Switch model.

What many people were expecting from the new OLED Switch was a upgrade in the Bluetooth department, but the company has decided to go with the older version only. Regarding the topic, The Verge reported that Nintendo said they had nothing to say about it, however, similar to Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite consoles, the newest Nintendo Switch has the ability to support Bluetooth tech for the Joy-Con controllers. The new OLED Switch can be bought starting from October 8th for $350. Other than the bigger screen and amped up audio, the new OLED Switch has a much-improved kickstand.
