These Nintendo Switch Pro rumours are refusing to quit. We’ve been hearing about an upgraded version of Nintendo’s hybrid system (colloquially dubbed the “Switch Pro” by fans) for a long time now, and new information has possibly come to light now as well.

Spanish site Vandal states in a newly published report that it has received new details on the upcoming Switch revision from an Asian peripherals manufacturer, and there’s some interesting stuff to dive into. Allegedly, the Switch Pro (or whatever Nintendo ends up calling it) is going to have a flap on its back to replace the kickstand of the current Switch model for tabletop gameplay, similar to Microsoft’s Surface tablets.

The dock is also going to be thicker, owing to some additions and changes. The current Switch’s USB 2.0 is being replaced by USB 3.0, while the dock is also going to have an ethernet port. Meanwhile, the report claims that while the tablet itself is going to be approximately similar in size to the current Switch model, the screen is going to be OLED, and going to be bigger (which might suggest that the bezels are being removed).

We’ve previously seen reports of the Switch Pro having a 7-inch OLED screen, and this definitely falls in line with that. Meanwhile, Vandal’s report also states that the console will support 4K output through the dock, which is something else we’ve heard more than a few times in previous reports and leaks.

Finally, the report states that the console will launch in Europe at the end of November (and might launch in other regions a little later), and that supply will be very limited at launch.

Recent reports have suggested that the Switch Pro is going to be announced soon, possibly even before E3, so stay tuned for more updates.
