next one Nintendo Switch review, Which has been rumored to have been working for a while, will have an upgraded OLED screen and may require a new dock, according to new information shared online.
MA well-known console and data authenticator hacker has discovered a new version of the Nintendo Switch codenamed Aula. ResetERA Forums. It looks like this new hardware review will be using the Mariko SoC. This new model will not only be in docking mode, as the Aula supports manual mode.
Nintendo is already working on a new model with improved display elements and has been in the business for about 1.5-2 years. Personally, I think it is 4K considering the flags I see in the firmware, but this has not been confirmed yet and it could be a bug.
The new device, codenamed Aula, uses the Mariko SoC. There is a bunch of references to it in the code (the atmosphere supports the new offering in theory).
Aula explicitly supports mobile mode. Not just anchor; This is Calcio, which appears to be dedicated internally only / never launches because Calcio has neither a game card slot nor a battery.
The new Nintendo Switch review will feature an upgraded OLED display, but SciresM isn’t sure about the accuracy. However, the console will support 4K resolution in some form, as Aula has firmware support for some Realtek chips that advertise themselves as a “4K UHD multimedia SoC”. SciresM expects that this chip can be included in a new dock.
The tablet itself definitely has an improved screen, and I don’t know if it’s 4K.
Aula has firmware that supports some Realtek chips that advertise themselves as “4K UHD multimedia SoC” as well, hence I think it’s 4K. This chip may be inside a new dock and not inside the tablet, however, there is no way to find out the firmware code yet.
After checking my previous discussions with hexkyz, the tablet’s upgraded display is OLED. Maybe not a higher resolution on the tablet itself, so I think the realtek 4k chip is more likely a new dock than I thought.
And according to the data lab, the Mariko SoC will allow for better performance thanks to better cooling and battery life.
Marico has significantly better cooling and battery life. It’s a bona fide death shrinking on the original generation.
My best guess (net speculation, there’s no indication of firmware as such) is that if they need extra performance, they’ll push it to higher hourly rates across the board.
But yes, I think the games will be like “DSi optimized” games, or like how some games will benefit from the PS4 Pro despite working on the PS4.
A new Nintendo Switch review has been rumored for a while, and with this information included in the firmware it is likely to be revealed. We will keep you updated on the matter as soon as more emerges, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
