Nintendo fans have welcomed Switch Lite with great enthusiasm, but many have wondered why the Kyoto company has made a decision to present the new portable console in only three colours, namely turquoise, yellow and grey. While the 2017 model manages to get somewhere between 2.5 and 6.5 hours of battery life, the Switch Lite manages to eek out an extra half hour on both sides, ranging from 3 hours to 7 hours.

The newer chips could result in a number of improvements for the home-cum-handheld console, including fewer slowdowns during particularly graphically-intensive and expansive games (here's looking at you, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild), faster load times, less heat, and most important of all, longer battery life. But still, this is a welcome development, especially for current Switch owners who primarily play on the go.

Nintendo finally confirmed the next iteration of the Switch console family: the Switch Lite, which arrives on September 20. The device will be available in multiple colors - yellow, gray and turquoise.

Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls and is smaller than the flagship version of Nintendo Switch.

The biggest difference between the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Light is that you can't connect the Switch Light to a TV. Nintendo increased its annual outlook for sales of Switch games from 100 million to 110 million.

That's not the only compromise you'll have to make as the Joy-Con controllers aren't detachable. Nintendo Switch Lite will lack with some of the features in comparison to Switch being a cheaper version of the blockbuster handheld by Nintendo.
