CNET has published an article talking about the possibility of screen burn on the forthcoming Nintendo Switch (OLED model) as OLED screens screens have been notorious in the past for image retention or ghosting. Nintendo says that they have designed the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) with longevity in mind and using the built in pre-set functions on the Nintendo Switch settings, screen burn should not be an issue for buyers. The Nintendo Switch (OLED model) is due out on 8th October and our preview will go live soon.
“We’ve designed the OLED screen to aim for longevity as much as possible, but OLED displays can experience image retention if subjected to static visuals over a long period of time. However, users can take preventative measures to preserve the screen [by] utilizing features included in the Nintendo Switch systems by default, such as auto-brightness function to prevent the screen from getting too bright, and the auto-sleep function to go into ‘auto sleep’ mode after short periods of time.”
