Switch OLED TV Family

The shiny new Switch OLED comes with its own dock, which is hiding a few upgrades of its own – including a chipset that can handle 4K / 60fps. It also has a revised design that sees the rear panel pop off when you're inserting things like HDMI cables, power leads and LAN cables.

As you can appreciate, anything that pops off of something is in danger of being lost, and Nintendo has already covered this eventuality by offering the rear panel of the dock separately.

These aren't currently available in North America for some reason, but we'd imagine they'll be added soon (Japan has them, at least).

The 'Replacement parts' section of Nintendo's site is perhaps a new thing for many people. You can pick up items such as Joy-Con wrist straps, HDMI cables and even a stand-alone dock. It's also possible to pick up the easily-lost kickstand for the original model Switch (although for some reason this isn't available on the UK store, despite being there previously).

Have you ever had to make use of this service? And do you feel comforted in the fact that a rear dock panel is available, should you need one in the future? Let us know by leaving a comment.
