The story of the a rumoured 4K-ready Nintendo Switch – or the Switch Pro, as many have taken to calling it – has been an eventful one, with leaks and rumours persisting over a long period and relentlessly suggesting that such a device is indeed in the works and on the way, even with Nintendo categorically denying such reports. Of course, the new Switch model that is coming up is a much more iterative upgrade, which has led some people disappointed.

It does come with a new dock, among other things, and that dock, it seems, is more future proof than you’d think. YouTuber Nintendo Prime recently uploaded a teardown analysis video of the device, and reports that its new dock’s HDMI port is “at least” HDMI 2.0 compliant, and that the device itself comes with an HDMI 2.0 cable.

What exactly does that mean? In simple terms, it means that that dock is capable of outputting images at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second, even though the Switch OLED itself, of course, is not 4K-compatible. For comparison’s sake, the base Switch comes with an HDMI 1.4 cable and an HDMI 1.4 port.

The Switch OLED’s new dock can also be purchased separately, so if there is a 4K-ready variant of the Switch currently in production, it would make sense for Nintendo to ensure that a dock can support that right off the bat.
