Update to Valve’s handheld PC gaming system, “Limited Edition” Steam deck OLED, will be available next week. The new version improves screen quality, battery life, and Wi-Fi capability, with a “6nm APU.” Starting at $549 for the 512GB storage version, the OLED Decks are available beginning November 16, with “very limited” quantities.
LCD models of the Steam Deck have also been discounted, with discounts on the 64GB and 512 GB versions while supplies last.
Valve says the Steam Deck OLED will offer “brighter colors, darker blacks,” with “amazing motion definition,” shoring up one of the major nitpicks about the Deck’s launch feature. The OLED model also measures 30–50 times more battery life, weighs 30 g less than the original, and can record up to three times faster.
This is a developing story, and this post will be updated.
