A new report suggests an updated Switch is currently underway.
News of the updated Switch model comes from DigiTimes’ sources on the upstream supply chain. The new Nintendo Switch will apparently begin production at the end of the first-quarter of 2020 – that likely means sometime in March – before it gets an official release in mid-2020.
It has previously been rumoured for some time that Nintendo has been planning a Switch Pro, which could feature a bigger screen and higher res gaming. Likewise, last year Wall Street Journal writer Takashi Mochizuki reported two new models of Switch were in the works:
I reported in Aug 2019: "Nintendo has ideas for further updates to the Switch lineup after those two models to make the platform’s lifecycle long"

Still, details of the new model are pretty scant. We’ve reached out to Nintendo for comment.
