Nintendo has hand picked Japan Display to produce the Nintendo Switch’s high quality 6.2 inch liquid crystal display. Japan Display will supply three million screens in an initial batch and the Wall Street Journal reports that they will ship slightly more than 10 million units by the end of this year. This is all dependant on sales. Nintendo has already mentioned that they will ship two million Switch units in its first month on the market.




  1. Ughhh its 2017, they should be getting actual high quality W-OLED screens from LG. The term “high quality” and LCD are like saying “healthy McDonald’s” its just not a thing.

    Not to mention a OLED in general would give the switch 10-15% longer battery, better contrast, Best blacks, best color, and support HDR. Also reduce heat……lame


    • You can have LCD screens that are HDR. They’ve existed for years. HDR is just bit-depth.

      But I agree that OLED would have been better and you haven’t even named all of the advantages they can have even for ergonomics and input but they are more expensive and do use more battery when the screen is completely white.


  2. This seems strange. The company that made screens for them in the past, Sharp, is the only company that I know of that makes IGZO displays which allows the screen to retain an image for a short time after power is cut to it so they can literally shut the TFT layer on and off and save a lot of power. That feels like that would have been a bit more important.
