The company also says that currently, it has no further plans to launch more Nintendo Switch models, amid persisting reports of a 4K variant.

A recent report claimed that the manufacturing cost for a Switch OLED for Nintendo is just $10 higher than a base Switch, which in turn means a profit margin of $40 for every unit of the Switch OLED sold (which will retail for $349.99 as opposed to the $299.99 price of a regular Switch model). Nintendo has denied these claims.

In recently published tweets, the Japanese company called these claims incorrect in order to “ensure correct understanding among [their] investors and customers.” Meanwhile, Nintendo also says that right now, it has no plans for launching any other Switch model. Reports of a 4K-ready Switch Pro had been abundant prior to the Switch OLED’s announcement, but have persisted even afterward.

The Nintendo Switch OLED launches on October 8. It will have the same CPU and RAM as the base Nintendo Switch and use the same Joy-Cons, but will come with a new and improved dock (which can also be purchased separately).
