Valve has officially announced an updated Steam Deck OLED with a better screen and a larger battery. The OLED version will have two variations: 512 GB and a limited version with 1 TB of storage. They will cost $549 and $649 respectively.

The console will have a slightly larger 7.4-inch OLED screen with HDR, 1280×800 pixels, and a 90Hz refresh rate, while the bezels will be smaller. The screen has been improved not only from the visual side, but also made more sensitive and accurate.

In addition to the screen, another sensory change is a larger 50Wh battery that should provide 3 to 12 hours of playtime depending on the load, which is 30% more than the previous model. The OLED version also has improved audio.

In addition, the console will receive Wi-Fi 6E support and a separate Bluetooth antenna, and it will be slightly cooler thanks to a larger fan and an increased heat dissipation system.

Pre-orders for Steam Deck OLED will start on November 16. You can learn more about all the changes on the official website.
