Rumour: Switch Pro will provide a “surface style” desktop flip, USB 3.0 and Ethernet connection

There are reports that Nintendo will remove the cover of its “Switch Pro” before E3, and the network has been eagerly waiting for news – with this in mind, we have obtained more (unofficial) details from the Spanish site Spoiler.

This information comes from Chinese accessory manufacturers (these people have proved to be very knowledgeable in the past), and Vandal’s track record is pretty good, but please keep in mind that all these are rumors at the moment.

According to the website, the Switch Pro will be similar in size to the existing Switch, but the OLED screen will have a corner pitch of about 7 inches and there will be almost no borders around it.

The current Joy-Cons will still be compatible with the new model, but the annoying and fragile bracket has disappeared. It is replaced by an apparently Microsoft Surface-style clamshell, which may make desktop games more sturdy. The Micro SD port is located behind this bezel, which is easier to use this time.

Excuse me "Switch to pro version" There is a Surface-style flip on the back? We definitely hope so...

Regarding the docking station, the report claims that it is slightly thicker than the original version, but offers x2 USB 3.0 ports and an Ethernet port-the latter will be very convenient for those who require minimal delay when playing games online. 4K output can be achieved using the docking station.

Vandal temporarily claimed that Switch Pro will arrive in Europe in a very limited number at the end of November.
