Nintendo Switch Specs May Not Support 3G Or LTE – Here’s Why

The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid video game console developed by Nintendo. It was unveiled last October. It is Nintendo’s attempt in creating a portable and home-console gaming in just one device. 

Recent reports state that the Nintendo Switch specs would not include support for 3G or LTE capability. The Nintendo console will only be able to support Wi-Fi. This was hinted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) documents as cited in Reddit. The FCC is an independent agency of the US which seeks to regulate interstate communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable in the US.

According to the FCC files, the Nintendo Switch will have Bluetooth but will not support 3G or LTE, which are essential for mobile data for on the go play. But, Nintendo Switch will support a 5GHz Wi-Fi. The documents also show that the Switch can function in temperatures of 5 to 35 degrees Celsius.

Rumors also claim that the system will carry a Pascal GPU architecture from NVIDIA, 4GB of RAM and an A73 ARM processor. The graphics in the Nintendo Switch are also expected to run from ultra to high to medium on PC.

Other reports also state that the battery of this device, which is a rumored 4319 mAh battery, is also not removable or changeable. A source says that this is a form of departure from the Wii U, specifically its GamePad where the batteries may be changed. The battery will supposedly have a maximum battery life length of 3 hours but there is still no information if that is in a full clock mode or a portable clock speed.

Why The Nintendo Switch Can’t Support 3G or LTE

The FCC files have revealed some more additional information regarding the Nintendo Switch specs before its upcoming reveal event in January 2017.  This was the feature which will supposedly do away with the 3G or LTE support. Yet, Nintendo Switch still has not announced any official detail about this particular feature on the Nintendo Switch and as to why they may have removed it.

We can expect official information release on the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 . This event will be held in Tokyo on January 12. Thereafter, the Nintendo Switch will travel across North America for a hands-on experience. The hands-on event will run from January 13 to March 5, 2016.

The Nintendo Switch is set for a worldwide release on March next year.
