Nintendo Denies Making More Profits from OLED Switch
Nintendo has denied a report that claimed it is making more profits from its OLED Switch model. According to a report by Bloomberg, the production cost of the new model is around US$10 (~RM42) more per unit, yet it costs US$50 (~RM211) more than the previous model, based on analyst estimates.
Nintendo cleared the allegation on its official Twitter account this afternoon.
The OLED Switch comes with a 7-inch 720p OLED screen and doubles the original storage to 64 GB. It also features an ethernet port on the dock and an improved kickstand. If the estimates are accurate, Nintendo could be making an additional profit of up to US$40 (~RM168) for each unit sold of the new model.
In addition, Nintendo also denied the rumors of the possibility of another Nintendo console - the alleged Switch Pro. Nintendo added in a tweet, “We also want to clarify that we just announced that Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) will launch in October, 2021, and have no plans for launching any other model at this time.”
