Nintendo Switch is getting a new display from Sharp, report says

Sharp to supply Nintendo with IGZO displays for Switch

Nintendo plans to launch two new versions of the Switch this summer.

By opting to use Sharp's screens in the Switch, Nintendo could take advantage of the smaller transistors used in IGZO displays to increase the system's overall power efficiency. Earlier reports had claimed Nintendo may have another, high-end Switch console planned to release later this year. The material Sharp uses for these display panels are incredibly high resolution, but don't consume much power and are said to be very durable as well.

The current Switch uses an amorphous silicon (a-Si) display, which were originally manufactured by Japan Display Inc., but has since been manufactured by Taiwanese companies. While it is possible that these screens are for the new Nintendo Switch model with a longer-lasting battery that is now being deployed, this was not specified.

Sharp Executive Katsuaki Nomura reportedly told the Journal that it's suppling a video game client "what we are most good at, IGZO". Not long after, we learned that the original Switch model was getting an upgrade as well to extend its battery life, but it turns out that these two updates are just the beginning of what might be a long string of new Switch models.
