Nintendo has released an official statement denying a report claiming that dev kits for a supposed “4K Switch” were sent out to developers.
The report in question was originally published by Bloomberg, which claimed their sources from “11 game companies” had been sent 4K development kits for the Nintendo Switch. This report went on to claim that this rumored 4K Switch would only be releasing “late 2022 earliest” according to their sources.
In response, Nintendo took to their investor relations Twitter account to firmly deny these claims, outright calling them “false” in their statement. This statement not only denies the claim that Nintendo sent out tools for a 4K Switch, but also re-iterates that they currently have no plans for any new model other than the OLED Model which is releasing next week.
We also want to restate that, as we announced in July, we have no plans for any new model other than Nintendo Switch – OLED Model, which will launch on October 8, 2021. (2/2)

Given Nintendo’s persistent denial of the rumors, it is looking more and more likely that the Switch OLED Model is indeed the only new version of the Switch we will be seeing in the foreseeable future. We will be sure to report back with more details as they come.
