The Nintendo Switch OLED model has been officially announced. This upgraded version of Nintendo’s console / handheld hybrid will launch on October 8 and cost $ 349.
Even just buying a regular Nintendo Switch hasn’t been the easiest task lately. We’d be very surprised if the Nintendo Switch OLED model also didn’t join the growing list of tech items that people want to buy but don’t seem to have in stock anywhere.
The system’s early October launch date certainly makes it one of the most sought after holiday gifts of the year, and with global chip shortages still continuing, the stock of the Nintendo Switch OLED model may not meet expected demand.
Just like the regular Switch, the OLED model will be launched in two color schemes: White and Neon Red / Neon Blue. These models are equally functional, so this is just to suit your preferences.
If you want to make an upgraded Nintendo Switch during launch, you’ll need to have your pre-order confirmed quickly. That’s where we can help, below you’ll find all the retailers that are taking orders for Nintendo Switch OLED models. (Currently, only Nintendo has a product page for the new Switch).
If the console is sold out, don’t worry. We’ll be updating this article ahead of the console’s launch date of October 8, so be sure to keep checking if orders open again or new retailers start accepting orders.

What is the Nintendo Switch OLED model
The newest member of the Nintendo Switch family is a new version of the basic Nintendo Switch console. This means it offers all the same features as a regular Switch but with a much -needed set of upgrades.
The main feature is a new 7 -inch OLED screen. This is a pretty big improvement from the 6.2 -inch LCD screen on the standard Nintendo Switch. The OLED screen will make upcoming exclusive games like Metroid Dread and Breath of the Wild 2 look even more incredible when played in handheld mode.
The Nintendo Switch OLED model will also offer a spacious adjustable stand, perfect for finding the right angle to play, an improved dock that has a wired LAN port (perfect for the upcoming Splatoon 3 multiplayer shooter), 64 GB internal storage (twice double 32GB on the standard Switch) and enhanced audio features thanks to a redesigned set of built -in speakers.
This is clearly an evolution of the Nintendo Switch, not the revolutionary Nintendo Switch Pro some people expect, but if you’re a frequent Switch gamer or just want to get a Nintendo system for the first time, the Nintendo Switch OLED model is an obvious choice to use.
