New report suggests that a Nintendo Switch Pro could release later this year

There have been rumors about a more powerful version of the Nintendo Switch being in development for years now, but a new report suggests that those predictions might be coming true later this year. 

Nintendo could release a new model of the hybrid console by as soon as mid-2020, with production set to begin at the end of Q1 or right around March, according to a report from Taiwanese media publication Digitimes.

The report says that this information came from sources in the “upstream supply chain,” which simply means that some information regarding the new models was probably leaked after some of the new components for the “Switch Pro” were decided upon. Digitimes has been hit or miss when it comes to predicting new hardware, but there’s too much smoke from other sources to not believe that there’s at least a small fire happening in Nintendo’s production meetings.
