FCC filing gives us more Nintendo Switch hardware information


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.

Farewell, old friend.

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.

  1. Almost everywhere I’d play Switch has Wi-Fi anyhow, so that isn’t exactly an issue for me…and quite possibly many people. Truth be told, this is the Nintendo console I’ve been waiting for…HD-quality graphics and the games I want to play, where I am able to play them 🙂
