Nintendo have announced the new Nintendo Switch Lite, a smaller version of the current Nintendo Switch.

The Nintendo Switch Lite is a portable-only handheld console, measuring at 3.6 x 8.2 x 0.55 inches (HxLxD) and weighing 0.61 pounds, compared to the current Switch, which is 4 x 9.4 x 0.55 inches and 0.88 pounds.

The touchscreen will also be slightly smaller, measuring at 5.5 inches, and also features a longer battery life, lasting up to 7 hours.

With Nintendo’s focus for the Switch Lite being on handheld gameplay only, both Joy-Cons have been built into the console, and are no longer detachable.

The Switch Lite will also be available in three colours: yellow, turquoise and grey.

The console is due for release on 20th September 2019.
