Nintendo Switch Dock Has Additional Processing Power, Screen Is Multi-Touch, Battery Life Is 3 Hours – Rumor


The new Nintendo console, the Nintendo Switch, has finally been unveiled yesterday with a preview trailer, but there's still a lot we don't know about the unique system launching next year in all regions. A few hours ago, additional details on the dock, the console's screen and battery life have emerged online.

Laura Kate Dale, who has proven in the past few days to have inside knowledge of the new Nintendo console, recently revealed on her Twitter profile that the Nintendo Switch dock will have some additional processing power. If this is the case, it will probably take a few seconds to switch between handheld mode to home console.

In yesterday's preview clear, it's hard to tell if the Nintendo Switch screen will be a touch screen. According to Laura Kate Dale's sources, the console's screen will be a multi-touch screen which will not be core to most gameplay, as it will be used for menus and specific games.

Battery life is probably one of the biggest mysteries of the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, things don't look good as of now. Laura Kate Dale stated that she's heard about mediocre battery life, with a source from Ubisoft talking about a maximum battery life of three hours.

While Laura Kate Dale has recently proven to be reliable, we must still take everything she has revealed with a grain of salt until an official confirmation comes in.
