Switch Lite is obviously a bit different from the standard of Nintendo Switch. The regular Switch can be used as a portable or home console. The Switch Lite, on the other hand, has been specifically crafted as a handheld console. The system cannot be docked or played on a television. Also, it is smaller than the regular base switch. It has a 5.5-inch touch screen to the standard’s 6.2-inch screen. It also has a better battery than the original console.

The Switch Lite will have a solid body, unlike the existing standard Switch. So, it won’t come with detachable Joy-Con controllers. There are also a few other things that are missing, such as rumble and the IR sensor. Due to it being solid, Nintendo Switch Lite doesn’t have a kickstand. However, there will be a true D-pad. Joy-Cons will work with the Switch Lite, and they are an absolute must if you want to play some games. Switch Lite still uses a custom Nvidia Tegra GPU and comes equipped with 32 GB of internal storage (expandable through microSD).
