Nintendo has just released a new Switch Lite console that supports only handheld mode, is more compact and affordable, and can last longer on a single charge. It is reported that the new gam console may have adopted a more advanced Nvidia TegraSoC, supplemented by a 5.5-inch @ 720p display. The key layout of the controller is the same as the split Joy-Con handle. In addition, it supports local and online multiplayer games, allowing up to eight people to play games together via Wi-Fi.

In terms of style, the new Switch Lite game console provides three colors: yellow, blue and green, in order to attract players of different tastes. The game console will be shipped on September 20 at a price of $199.99 (1374RMB).

By contrast, the full version of the Switch game console sells for $299.99 (2061RMB). Because the Lite version of the host cuts off desktop mode, the pedestal bracket, HDRunble, and IRMotion camera connected to the TV are not supported.

For mobile gamer lovers, they may be very satisfied with Switch Lite's compromises in these areas. After all, it was more compact, lost 0.27lb (122g) and lasted 3 to 7 hours (2.5 to 6.5 hours for Switch).

Interestingly, although the battery capacity of the Switch Lite is smaller, the battery life of the Switch Lite is 33% higher than that of the original Switch, which means that the hardware performance of the whole machine has been greatly improved (or using the more proficient NVIDIATegraSoC).

The original Switch conslole used a TegraX1 chip based on the 20nm process. Recently, we saw some evidence of a revised version of X1, suggesting a significant change in the operating voltage. It is possible that the size and power consumption of the chip are further optimized (using 16nm or 12nm process nodes).

However, neither Nintendo nor Nvidia has confirmed the use of the new TegraX1 chip on the new Switch mainframe. As for the truth, it has yet to be revealed after the official release in September.
