When the Switch Lite was announced, people were wondering if Nintendo had a Switch Pro in the works. The answer is a resounding kind of… but not really. According to the Nintendo product page, the Nintendo Switch will see an upgrade coming this August, but it will purely be an upgrade to the Switch’s battery life.
Where the original Switch lasted from 2.5 – 6.5 hours, this new updated edition of the Switch will last anywhere from 4.5 – 9 hours. This blows the battery life of the newly announced Switch Lite out of the water. The Switch Lite boasted a battery life of 3 – 7 hours.
We now know that this is in regards to this new updated Switch, which will cost the same as the launch model of the Switch from 2017 at around 300 US dollars. This upgraded Switch will release near the end of August.

But Nintendo had more than battery life to announce. Nintendo announced two new color pairs of joy-cons as well. Nintendo has yet to announce if the new colors will become included with this new Switch upgrade. It has been a while since we’ve seen new joy-con colors. The colors are a dark blue paired with a neon yellow and a neon purple paired with a neon orange joy-con.
But what do you think? Are you going to pick up either of the new versions of the Nintendo Switch? Do the new joy-con colors look cool? Let us know in the comments below!
