Report: Nintendo Switch Lite Is the Only New Nintendo Hardwa

Nintendo Switch - Gray Joy-Con Lite, due for release in September, will reportedly be the only new Nintendo Switch hardware to be launched this holiday. Bowser said the original Switch hardware won’t get an upgrade right now.
Nintendo Switch "Pro" Delayed?
This goes against a report from The Wall Street Journal, which stated that both a cheaper and “enhanced” version of the Nintendo Switch would be released as early as this summer. While the Nintendo Switch Lite misses that summer window, it does match the specifications reported by The Wall Street Journal of a redesigned, cheaper console lacking vibration and positioned as a 3DS successor. With that in mind, there’s still potential that the publication's reports of an upgraded version of the Switch could still prove credible, with a new console arriving after 2019.Around the same time, Bloomberg reported that a more powerful Switch was not in the works, but that a “modest” upgrade to the console was coming later this year. That could well have been pointing towards the latest news that Nintendo is planning to update the CPU in new Switch consoles. While it doesn’t seem like the Switch will be relaunched as a new, more powerful device, a new CPU could provide benefits such as faster load times and better battery life, which would match Bloomberg’s report of a “modest” upgrade.
