Another analyst reportedly shared new information about the rumored system dubbed “Switch 2,” claiming that Nintendo's next console will come with an 8-inch LCD screen and will arrive sometime in 2024.

This information was shared in a new story by Bloomberg, with the source being Omdia analyst Hiroshi Hayase, an individual who conducts research based on the company's supply chains of “small and medium-sized displays.”

“The new device from the Kyoto-based toy maker will be responsible for doubling shipments of so-called entertainment displays in 2024,” Hayase said in Tokyo on Friday.

Again, there's no official confirmation and a Nintendo spokesperson had nothing to say about this latest report, so no guarantees necessarily, but this is a reliable source according to Bloomberg. The current OLED model system comes with a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720.

This comes after an analyst claimed earlier this month that a 'Switch 2' model would arrive this year and be priced at $400. Last year, there were also reports of Sharp supplying its own LCD panels for a new console.
