The Nin­ten­do Switch OLED mod­el comes with a new dock which includes a built-in LAN port, and this new dock will be sold separately.

A Nin­ten­do rep­re­sen­ta­tive told Dig­i­tal Trends that the white and black ver­sions of the dock will be sold through the Nin­ten­do online store, but not at retail sites. The dock does­n’t come with an HDMI cable or an AC adapter, and it will be deliv­ered in plain pack­ag­ing. Pric­ing and release date for the stand­alone dock was not detailed.

The reg­u­lar Switch dock is cur­rent­ly avail­able from the Nin­ten­do store for $60. It would be high­ly unlike­ly that the dock would be high­er than $90.

These new docks from the OLED mod­el work with the stan­dard ver­sion of the Switch. This might be appeal­ing for play­ers who want to down­load or play games with a wired con­nec­tion fro pre­sum­ably bet­ter, more con­sis­tent speeds. How­ev­er, Nin­ten­do does already sell a LAN adapter for the exist­ing dock. Anoth­er fac­tor to con­sid­er is the loss of a USB port for the inte­grat­ed LAN connection.
