If you think about successful consoles in the past 10 years, the Nintendo Switch certainly is one of the most popular. It’s not surprising to see how much commercial success it has gone on to achieve, either. Its hybrid design is appealing to the versatile gamer who wants to take their games on the go, rather than just playing on a television screen.

Nintendo certainly could have rest on their laurels and continued being successful, but they kept pushing the boundaries. They’re fresh off the introduction of the Switch Lite, a strictly portable unit that is more cost-effective. It’s the perfect handheld for playing your favorite Nintendo Switch games wherever your adventures take you.

Along with this portable Switch, there have been rumors circulating about a Pro model. It makes sense that Nintendo would go this route. You look at Microsoft and Sony and their Pro models are still selling exceptionally well. They’re for the consumer that wants the best visual performances available for consoles.

Fortunately, it seems like there is more momentum behind a possible advanced Switch system. That’s according to the rumor mill right now, anyway. You see, DigiTimes recently reported of a new Switch model coming out sometime in the middle of 2020. Also according to their reports, this new Switch model will have an upgraded CPU as to signify the conformation of a Pro unit.

That’s certainly cause for celebration if you’ve been holding out for such a system or just like the Switch so much that you want to have every version. Although, the former probably holds true for most gaming fans today.

Reports are also indicating that this new Switch model will have a magnesium body. That’s pretty much all of the details we have at the moment. Nintendo has not gone on record officially to confirm or deny these rumors, but as often the case in the video game industry, where there’s smoke there’s fire.

If a Switch Pro does come out, one has to assume it will probably be the most expensive Switch model to date. At least that has been the reoccurring theme with these more advanced consoles, capable of supporting 4K and bigger cartridge sizes.

All signs are more than likely pointing towards a more advanced Switch model. It’s important for Nintendo to keep the Switch life cycle going strong, especially as we approach the next wave of consoles from Sony and Microsoft.

Things could get very interesting for Switch fans this year.
