With E3 just around the corner its time for the rumormill to start spinning up again. This latest drop, however, comes from a pretty trustworthy source – Takashi Mochizuki writing for Bloomberg.

If you’re a veteran of Nintendo rumors you’ll remember that name from earlier correct rumors such as the Nintendo Switch Lite launching in the second half of 2019 and the Switch itself using cartridges.

In this latest article, Mochizuki suggests that Nintendo is not only readying as 4K-capable Switch model, but it could release as soon as September.

Supposedly the new device will effectively replace the $299 model currently available and be sold alongside the Switch Lite, though it’s expected to be more expensive. It will also reportedly feature “a 7-inch Samsung Display Co. OLED display and faster Nvidia Corp. graphics silicon making it capable of 4K output when docked to a TV.”

If the rumor holds true, we’ll see the new Switch model launch in September or October and it may be “announced ahead of the E3 conference” to give publishers a chance to show off their games running on the new hardware.

We’ll be sure to bring any news as it comes in.
