The Nintendo Switch Lite price is only $199, about $100 cheaper than the flagship version of the switch. Switch Lite will come in a variety of bright colors, of course, compatible with all Switch games before.
Of course affordable, but Switch Lite will have such impossible things: it doesn’t feature HD Rumble (Nintendo’s vibration tech for controllers) or an IR motion camera. Since the controllers are not removable and this console is handheld-only, motion controls won’t work. It also doesn’t ship with a set of Joy-Con controllers or a dock, it can’t be used in tabletop or dock mode, in other words, Switch Lite is handheld console only, not hybrid console.
The differences are not significant compared to when playing the game on the Switch. At the same time, because the Switch Lite has 2 sides attached Joycon so the feeling of holding will be much more comfortable than the flagship model. The buttons layout as well as the navigation buttons like D-pad will be the same as the original, but not separated into four buttons as on the Switch.
Nintendo said Switch Lite also improved in terms of battery life thanks to the use of a more energy-efficient chip, combined with no need for a separate battery for the two joycon. Nintendo Switch Lite features a smaller 5.5-inch screen and its dimensions are 3.6 inches width, 8.2 inches length, and 0.55 inches depth. The Switch Lite weighs around 290 grams, which is about 90gl grams lighter than the Switch with Joy-Con controllers attached.
The Switch Lite will still have the same performance as the Switch, will still connect to accessories such as Joy Con, Switch Pro, Poke Ball Plus and more. Of course, there will still be Wifi, Bluetooth, NFC, and built-in gyroscope.
Nintendo Switch Lite will come in three basic colors: Yellow, Gray, and Turquoise. There will also be two special editions for Pokemon Sword and Shield and will be available from September 20.
