Recently, Nintendo has announced a plan to bring forth an updated version of 3DS portable console. The new model will be having a substantially larger 4.88 inches autostereoscopic screen, increased from 2.02 inches on the original 3DS, with the same graphics res of 320×240.
Also its battery life will see a significant boost, going from a disappointing 3.6-6.5 hours for the original 3DS to 6-10 hours for the XL. So, other than some extra rounded frame and better looking buttons, it is almost identical to the previous versions.
A twice big 4GB SD memory card, three 0.3MP cameras (one inner and two outer), a motion sensor, a gyro sensor, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n controller and a Slide Pad will also be bundled with the 3DS XL. It will be unveiled in three attractive colors; red, blue, and silver.
3DS XL weighs approximately 336 grams. However, the redesigned console will no longer include an AC adapter or charging cradle, the accessory will be sold separately.
