Switch Pro Details Potentially Leaked By Dataminer - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 07 January 2021 / 3,405 Views
A more powerful mid-generation upgrade for the Nintendo Switch has been rumored for some time now. Known dataminer SciresM has discovered in Nintendo's latest firmware update the mention of a Switch model with the codename "Aula."
The upgraded console is like the base Switch model. It is a tablet that can be used in handheld mode or connected to the TV via a dock.
The "Aula" appears to have 4K capabilities, but it is likely only capable of this when docked with the 4K realtek chip being inside the dock itself.
The Switch tablet itself will also see some improvements with an OLED screen, however, SciresM doesn't expect higher resolution when in handheld mode.
This should be treated as a rumor until an announcement is made by Nintendo.
