A recently filed patent suggests that the Nintendo Switch 2 may come equipped with dual detachable screens.
According to reports from various media outlets, this new patent indicates that the device is similar to the Nintendo 3DS, featuring two distinct screens that can be detached and communicate wirelessly with each other. Additionally, the device is equipped with a touchscreen that can be used to operate the console while it is closed.
While many patents don’t necessarily translate into actual products, this unnamed device aligns with the overall theme of the Switch, so some of the highlighted features in this new patent may eventually become part of the Switch 2. Furthermore, such a device could allow Nintendo to easily add DS and 3DS games to the Nintendo Switch’s online gaming library.
Currently, there is limited information available about the Switch 2. According to the latest rumors, the Switch 2 will support NVIDIA DLSS 3.5, potentially giving it advanced ray tracing capabilities compared to the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
