It hasn’t been that long since the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) was launched, but it seems like the price of the portable console is steadily going down. Previously going for RM1,688, you can now get the latest and greatest Switch for only RM1,549.
This deal is offered by Shopee Mall retailer Impulse Gaming; one of the most renowned game stores in Malaysia. Both the new White and Neon colour options are available from Impulse, but only the White model is going for RM1,549. Do note that you’ll only get a 3-month warranty from Impulse itself for this particular unit.
If you want a 12-month warranty from Maxsoft instead – the official distributor of Nintendo products in Southeast Asia – you’ll have to fork out an extra RM50 for a total of RM1,599. It’s worth the price difference, in our opinion.
Compared to its predecessor, the new OLED Switch features a larger 7-inch OLED panel with thinner bezels. It also has double the internal storage at 64GB, and the stand sees a design revision as well. Instead of the original Switch’s fragile-looking stand, this new Switch uses a much sturdier, wider stand that is also adjustable.
Other changes introduced in the new OLED Switch include a new dock with a wired LAN port, “enhanced audio” from the system’s onboard speakers, and between 4.5 to 9 hours of battery life – the same quoted battery life as its predecessor.
If you want to get the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) for only RM1,549, you can do so from Impulse Gaming on Shopee. At the time of writing, only three units are left, so be quick if you want to get the new Switch at this low price.
