A recent FCC filing for the Switch has revealed new information about Nintendo’s upcoming console.
The Nintendo Switch will apparently feature a non-removable, 3.7 V battery. Concretely, this means that we may not be seeing an official extended battery pack for the Switch, and that it won’t be possible to swap a drained battery with a fresh one when using the console on the go.
The filing also suggests that the Switch, unlike the PS Vita, will not have any 3G or LTE support. This means that online gaming will be impossible without a Wi-Fi (or wired) connection.
Another interesting detail may have been revealed by these uncovered documents: the Nintendo Switch may be region-free.
Considering that the AC adapter operates at AC 100–240 V, 50/60 Hz, it has worldwide compatibility.
Of course, this doesn’t guarantee that the console will be region-free, but it does provide us with some hope that the system’s final build will allow us to play imported games.
