Nintendo is releasing a new model of the Switch (HAC-001-01) in August that is supposed to offer 4.5 to 9 hours of battery life. That’s certainly an improvement over the original console, which offered only 2.5 to 6.5 hours of playtime.

Nintendo didn’t specify how they achieved this, but recent FCC listings point toward a new NVIDIA Tegra SoC and updated memory. There are no performance differences in the revised model, however.

New Joy-Con colors were also announced today, as if there weren’t already enough.
