New Nintendo Switch FCC Filings Hint at Inbound Switch Revision With SoC and RAM Changes; Changes to CPU Board Suggested
New Nintendo Switch FCC filings suggest that Nintendo is planning a Switch revision with changes to the platform’s SoC and RAM.
Earlier this week we reported on a new Switch model that is said to be released in early 2021. Allegedly, this ‘new’ upgraded model could support 4K resolution and more computing power. Various major media outlets have reported on this rumored new Switch ‘Pro’ model, including Bloomberg and The Verge.
In the line of these rumors, filings at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for new hardware components inside the Switch have now been discovered, giving more credibility to these claims.
The new filings contain some interesting details about the Nintendo’s rumored Switch change, including changes of the platform’s System-on-a-Chip (SoC) and Memory. Due to the change of these two components, Nintendo is said to be also changing the CPU Board inside the Switch. A part of Nintendo’s official letter to do the FCC regarding the change has been included:
“This is to request a Class II permissive change for FCC ID: BKEHAT002, originally granted on 04/18/2017 and all its permissive changes. We changed the following points from the original model.
- Change of SoC
- Change of Memory
- CPU Board is changed due to the above two components
The filing includes both internal and external photos of the Nintendo Switch, with the internal ones showing the planned changes. We’ve included these photo’s down below.
Interesting to note is that these new filings were files on August 23.
Nintendo has just to confirm the new Nintendo Switch model. We’ll update as soon as more info comes in on this matter.
