Rumors about an improved version of the Nintendo Switch, a "Nintendo Switch Pro", have been around for a long time. There is no official information from the Japanese console manufacturer, but now new rumors are causing the topic to be discussed again. Dataminer "SciresM" claims to have discovered evidence of a Switch Pro in the current firmware update. Accordingly, the hardware should be significantly drilled and even support 4K gaming, among other things. The release of the Nintendo Switch Pro is planned for sometime in 2021.
In recent months, an improved Nintendo Switch has been a regular topic. Since the release of Sony's and Microsoft's new power consoles, rumors have picked up speed. Fans are fully expecting Nintendo to follow suit and release a more powerful version of the Nintendo Switch. According to rumors, the “Switch Pro” will be released later this year. However, there were no official statements from Nintendo regarding a possible release period or a power version of the hybrid console. So time will tell if the dataminders were right.
Nintendo Switch Pro could have an OLED screen
The well-known dataminer "SciresM" has spread the rumors this time. According to his information, the Nintendo Switch Pro should be reflected in the data of the latest firmware update. The project is to run under the code name "Aula".
If you believe the data miner's statements, the Nintendo Switch Pro will support resolutions of up to 4K; however, the chip should be installed in the docking station and not in the tablet part of the console. However, players could also be offered an improved visual experience in handheld mode: the switch tablet is said to have an OLED screen. According to "SciresM", this is also evident from the data mining of the firmware update. Minder even goes into detail: In addition to a Realtek 4K chipset inside the docking station, the "Aula" switch supposedly has a new Mariko SoC, which is said to lead to improved battery life and better cooling.
"The tablet itself definitely has an upgraded display, I don't know if it's 4K."

There were already discussions about a new Nintendo Switch last year: In the summer, rumors boomed that Nintendo could release an improved version as early as the beginning of 2021, then parallel to some game releases. So there is no shortage of supposed leaks in this area.
All of this information is ultimately not confirmed. Nintendo is rather conservative with the publication of such announcements. So you should approach the rumors with a good dose of skepticism and wait for official information from Nintendo itself.
