Although it has been in the rumor mill for a while, there is no detailed information about this upcoming tablet/console hybrid available yet. However, insiders claim it could show up later this week and will hit the market next year.

The next-gen Nintendo NX device for gamers on the go is rumored to be a tablet/console hybrid, and this information has been around for a while. Unfortunately, it has not been officially confirmed yet, but if the latest leak turns out to be true, we might see the official announcement as soon as this week.

According to investment firm Macquarie Group, the new console will have a price tag between $300 USD and $350 USD, but will only be unveiled this month. Commercial availability, on the other hand, is expected for early 2017, so those who were hoping to get one for this year's Christmas should probably think about buying something else.

The older rumors that mentioned the Nintendo NX hybrid contained a few interesting details, including the return to game cartridges, detachable controllers, 4K video streaming support, and 60 fps @ 1080p gaming capabilities. On the other hand, there was no info about the operating system that this device would run, not to mention that it will probably launch using a different name. Since we might find out a lot of official information concerning it in just a few days, stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
