According to latest rumours, the Switch Pro console will be similar to the existing Switch with a 7-inch OLED screen, which has almost no bezels around it.

Judging by the hints and teases, the Nintendo Switch Pro announcement could be imminent but the Japanese giant are yet to officially confirm that such a console even exists. However, the latest rumours have been stronger than ever and it seems that it's only a matter of time before Nintendo drops the Switch Pro bomb and sends fans into full hype mode.

The latest rumour, which reveals new details about the Switch Pro consoles comes from the reliable Spanish website Vandal.

According to the report, the console could be very similar in size to the existing Switch device. However, it rocks an OLED screen, which is around 7 inches from corner to corner and has almost no bezel around it.

Joy-Cons will be compatible with the new model, packing one small but certainly welcomed change - the kickstand is replaced with a Microsoft Surface-style flap.

As for the dock, Vandal reports that it is slightly thicker than the original version, but offers x2 USB 3.0 ports and an ethernet port. Apparently, the latter will come in handy for those who demand the lowest amount of latency when playing online. 

It's also reported that a 4K output will be possible using the dock.
