Rumors have been swirling for a while that updates to the Nintendo Switch will be coming soon, in the form of a ‘Mini’ focusing on portability, and a ‘Pro’ variant focusing on better specs. According to The Wall Street Journal, production on the machines has already started, with a shift from China to Southeast Asia production. Now, it’s possible the Mini’s existence may have leaked early via a Chinese retailer.

The online retailer in question, HonSon, began sending out emails to subscribers that featured accessories for the Switch Mini. They also include a render of the machine, and Nintendo Life got in touch with a representative of HonSon, and they said the renders were not official, but were based on ‘secret information,’ and they will  “adjust the model to ensure it can perfectly suit the console” once Nintendo officially puts them into production. You can see the original render and email below.

It’s not unheard of for a retailer to leak something early, but a mock up design on “secret information” seems to be pretty new. We have to chalk this up to speculation for now, but it definitely seems like there’s a lot of smoke in the air, so it won’t be too surprising if we see this “Mini” relatively soon.
