It has now been many months since analysts, journalists and other personalities in the video game industry talked about the production and upcoming release of a Nintendo Switch Pro. And it seems some component manufacturers are confident in marketing this new version of the Switch.

The unexpected statement of the day came from Steven V. Abramson, CEO of Universal Display Corporation, a company that specializes in the manufacture of OLEDs and technologies and services related to their use (companies like Samsung, Pioneer or even Panasonic, used under license) from technologies designed by UDC).
The latter recently attended a conference call to announce his company’s latest financial results. And while Steven V. Abramson was discussing the business prospects for OLED screens, he addressed the Switch Pro and its notch (Relays on Twitter by “Spawn wave“):
On the video game market side, Our reports show that Nintendo selected an OLED display for the new Switch Pro for the first time, as OLED offers advantages such as higher contrasts and faster response times.
Information or speculation?
Such wording does not make it clear whether Universal Display Corporation has direct knowledge of the manufacture of the Nintendo Switch Pro or whether it is using information conveyed through information to make this comment. For example, there is nothing to suggest that this new console will be nicknamed “Switch Pro” as the nickname of the rumor. Even if it obviously cannot be ruled out that Steven V. Abramson is well informed given his position, it still seems important not to take this sentence at face value.
As a reminder, the American website Bloomberg recently made this claim The Switch Pro will feature a larger Samsung screen than the 6.2-inch screen on the original Switch. Its sources also indicated that it would be a “rigid” OLED display with a resolution of 720p. and production of the console should begin in July.
At the time of this writing, Nintendo has not yet officially announced the release of a new Switch that is more powerful than the original model.
