More images are now leaked via well-known leaker Roland Quandt. The images show Nintendo Switch Mini design. The system looks pretty similar to the OG Nintendo Switch but its more sleek and compact.
It has a visibly smaller screen size and it would be interesting to know if there are any differences from a hardware standpoint. Nintendo Switch specs struggle with demanding games as it is, will Nintendo tone down its hardware to reduce cost? Or could we see a more powerful Nintendo Switch in the form of Mini?
If the leak is to be believed the new Nintendo Switch Mini handheld comes with a smaller profile and from the looks of it, built-in joy-cons on either side of the screen. The button placement is seemingly the same.
