The Nintendo Switch came out in 2017, and now in 2019, the Nintendo Switch Lite has been announced to release on the 20th of September this year for $200 making it $100 cheaper than the OG Switch. The Lite will not have a docking station like the OG Switch. The Lite is entirely portable, much like the 3DS and the 2DS. The Nintendo Switch originally came with HD rumble packs in the Joy-Cons that detach from the Nintendo Switch. Due to the Lite not having the rumble packs in the controllers, the Lite will surprisingly have a longer-lasting battery ranging from 3-7 hours rather than the 2.5-8.5 hours inside the Nintendo Switch. The battery duration will depend on the kind of games you play and how graphically demanding they are, basically it comes down to whether or not you are playing 2D games or 3D games. Games like Breath of the Wild will have a battery duration of about 3-4 hours on the Lite. The Lite will not have a kickstand either, which is unfortunate because you can sync the detachable Joy-Cons from the OG Switch to play motion-controlled games. There will be 32GB of internal storage, and you will be able to expand that storage using MicroSD cards. Of course, the Lite will weigh 30% less than the OG Switch. There is a proper D-Pad on the left side of the Lite too. The OG Switch has a screen size of 6.2 inches while the Lite has a smaller display, 5.5 inches. Even though the Lite has a smaller display, it still maintains the same 1080x720 display that the OG Switch has.
