Switch Lite and the revised version of the original Switch were announced in July by Nintendo and now have pictures published in the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), the American equivalent of Anatel. The images indicate that the batteries of the two devices are the same or smaller than the original, but they last longer.
This is because the new versions of the Switch have more efficient processors. Thus, the Switch Lite, with 13.6 watts-hour (Wh) battery, and the new Switch, with 16 Wh, have more autonomy than the original Switch, which also has 16 Wh.
According to Nintendo, the autonomy of the first generation of the console was between 2h30 and 6h30. Switch Lite is now between 3am and 7am. The new Switch, in turn, has autonomy between 4.30 am and 9 am.
The Switch Lite consumes less energy due to its characteristics. It has a smaller screen and does not offer removable Joy-Con controls that therefore do not need to be charged by the console’s battery.
FCC records show that Nintendo switched the Nvidia Tegra X1 processor from the original Switch to an updated version and changed the type of flash memory (NAND). The company, however, does not say what the change was.
The new versions of the Switch also have references to Norse mythology. While the first generation uses the code name ODIN, the new Switch uses MODIN, basically a modified version of Odin. Switch Lite is called VALI, son of Odin.
Considering that, according to mythology, Odin had other children, Thor, Baldur and Vidar, it is possible to speculate that Nintendo presents other variations for his console. Does Nintendo have a Switch Pro in their plans?
