Nintendo Switch Mini Specs
According to Newsweek and the Nikkei report it covered, the size of the Nintendo Switch Mini, as the name says, will be reduced so the portability of it gets better.
Because Nintendo wanted to reduce the overall price of the Nintendo Switch Mini it will no have detachable or dock Joy-Cons. In addition to that, it is also mentioned that you will be able to connect this mini console to a TV. Moreover, it will have Wi-Fi support, considering the 3DS and original Switch have done so.
The internal specifications of the Switch Mini have not been released yet, so keep an eye on the updates if you want to know more about that.
Based on an image that was leaked on the 17th of April, it looks like this Nintendo Switch Mini console will come in a turquoise case. It originally came from a Chinese forum that does not exist anymore now. However, this might not be true.
