iFixit Shares New Nintendo Switch OLED Model Teardown [VIDEO]

The experts over at iFixit have just published their signature teardown video of the new Nintendo Switch OLED model, noting there’s a lot more to the new model than just the updated display.


Alongside a better kickstand, there’s also new cooling, boards, antennas, and more. “Our teardown shows these changes are more than screen-deep,” they said.

The new Nintendo Switch OLED is also more compact, with a smaller cooling assembly, efficient enclosed speakers, and a super-thin glass-covered display.

“Dare we say this is the Switch Pro the internet has been looking for? Maybe we’d better not … With troublesome cable routing and no discernible changes to those infamously drifty Joy-Cons, we’re not sure this console is quite ready for the Rainbow Road.”

Check out the video below showing a side-by-side teardown of the Nintendo Switch OLED model and the Nintendo Switch 2019 refresh.
