What to Expect from the Nintendo Switch Lite?
Unlike the Nintendo Switch that was built for home gaming to portable gaming, the Nintendo Switch Lite is designed specifically for handheld play. With three available colors: yellow, gray, turquoise, and its light and sleek design, Nintendo Switch Lite will let you play whenever you are. The controllers are built in the system with the left side sports a +Control Pad. As for the games, the Nintendo Switch games that work in handheld mode will be compatible with the Lite version.
As for the price, the Nintendo Switch Lite will set you back $199, which is $100 less than the original Switch.
|Release Date||September 20, 2019|
|Pre-Orders||Available in Amazon, Best Buy and Target|
Nintendo Switch Lite will be using the NVIDIA Tegra, the same processor Nintendo Switch had when it was first released before the upgrade last March.
The screen is obviously smaller at 5.5″ but unlike its older brother, the Lite will fit right into the pocket of on-the-go gamers. Its built-in controller with the +Control Pad can still connect to extra Joy-Con. It does not have HD Rumble and IR Motion Camera but includes an NFC reader for Amiibo and Gyro Motion Sensor. It also supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3.5mm audio jack.
There is not much difference with it comes to resolution as both Switch and Switch Lite comes in at 720p.
For the battery life, it is slightly better than the 2017 release of Nintendo Switch with 3-7 hours, depending on what game you are playing, of course.
