Steam Deck OLED is presented by surprise with a better screen, autonomy and WIFI 6E

Steam Deck OLED

Raise your hand if you haven't been caught by surprise. The original Valve console was presented in 2021, but was put up for sale at the beginning of 2022. It arrived with balanced hardware that allowed it to offer autonomy ranging from 2 to 8 hours. With its resolution it is capable of moving games like God of War, but it costs more with some demanding titles. When some of us were looking for news about the second weekly, Valve surprised with the launch of the Steam Deck OLED.

It doesn't take a genius to know what the main attraction of this revision, not version, of the console is: it now uses an OLED screen. If we say it is a review it is because it is almost the same with slight improvements, but necessary and that can end up convincing those who were currently considering purchasing one (resist, Pablo! Don't give in!).

Both include the carrying case and the Steam profile bundle. The prices have dropped, and the catalog would have the LCD for €419 at the start, followed by the 512GB with €569, which was previously the top of the range and was for almost 700, and for 679€ We can get an OLED with 1TB of storage that offers a virtual keyboard with an exclusive theme.

Going into a little detail of the differences, the Steam Deck OLED is not more powerful than the original with LCD, but it consumes less due to the 6nm manufacturing process and a 25% larger battery. Added to that is the size of the screen, better screen in general, better WIFI and the price cut; now we will get 256GB with SSD for the same as before we got 64GB with eMMC memory.

The Steam Deck OLED will be "available" next November 16 at 19:XNUMX p.m. in Spain. We don't know if availability will be immediate, but that is the scheduled date. If the prices still seem high to you, there are reconditioned 512GB ones for less than €400 here.
