Nintendo Announces an Upgraded Version of Nintendo Switch, Releasing this August

Out of nowhere, Nintendo has just announced that the upgraded version of Nintendo Switch, called HAC-001(-01), is going to be available sometimes in August.

The upgraded Nintendo Switch barely changes anything save for the better battery life. Nintendo has claimed that it will be able to run up to 9 hours per charge, while some big titles e.g. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, will last around 5.5 hours. This seems to be a big upgrade from 3 hours in the current model.

The current version of Nintendo Switch (upper) can hold up to only 6.5 hours

Here’s the first picture of the revised Nintendo Switch:

It is worth noting that this new model will replace the current version of Nintendo Switch starting this August. Anyone who is planning to grab this hybrid console should wait a little longer as HAC-001(-01) will be sold with the same price.

Nintendo Switch HAC-001(-01) will be available sometimes in the middle of August for 299.99$.
