“Suppliers and others with direct knowledge of the plan” have told the Wall Street Journal that Nintendo will be releasing a brand new Nintendo Switch model. This new model will be releasing in the second half of 2019, possibly “as early as summer”. All we know is that the “machine specs are not finalized yet”, and Nintendo is still figuring out what they want to change, but “one option is improvement on display”. For example, that would include “improving battery life”. According to the site’s souces, third-party developers “hope the new Switch would give a clear hint on what would happen on the 3DS line”. Nintendo did not make any comments about the matter.
