The new hardware revision of the Nintenvì chưng Switch is now making its way to lớn retail stores. It features a newer, more efficient CPU than the original launch console, which results in significantly longer battery life ranging between 4.5 & nine hours. (The original Switch can last between 2.5 & 6.5 hours.)

Otherwise, the Nintenvì Switch “v2” — not lớn be confused with the upcoming Switch Lite — hasn’t changed much: it’s got the same thiết kế and same screen. That means there’s no easy way lớn distinguish the new, longer-lasting Mã Sản Phẩm from the original unless you know where lớn look và what to look for.

Look at the box

The easiest way to lớn spot the new Switch is its packaging. The box for the original hardware has a White background, but this time Nintenvị went with red. So if you’re trying to lớn hunt down a new unit at Best Buy, Walmart, Target, or someplace else, that’s the most obvious tell that you’ve sầu found one.

This is the box you should be looking for. Image: Nintenbởi Another difference from the old packaging is that there’s no longer a hand placing the Switch into its doông chồng. Instead, you’ll notice that one of the Joy-Con controllers is partially sticking out from the grip. And both the Joy-Con grip and TV have switched sides; on the previous box they were to the Switch’s left; now they’re to the right.

Chechồng the serial number

If you’re buying a used Switch, there might not be any box to lớn examine.

So another way of verifying that it’s the newer hardware Mã Sản Phẩm is by glancing at the serial number. If it starts with XKW, that’s the new one. Anything else (such as XAW), và you’re holding an original-release Switch. The serial number can be found on the bottom of the Switch console.

Will I get the newer one if I order online?

Maybe, but there are no guarantees. Retailers still have sầu plenty of inventory of the older Switch, và that’ll likely be true for some time. There’s nothing wrong with that Model, so they’re going to keep selling it. If you want the more efficient processor and longer battery life, right now your best bet is heading to a local retail store.
