Valve announces the Steam Deck OLED: what price and what features?

Valve, always at the forefront of innovation in the field of video games, recently announced a new OLED version of its Steam Deck. This premium version will stand out with a 7.4-inch OLED screen, offering superior image quality and supporting HDR, compared to the 7-inch of previous models.

In addition to these visual improvements, the Steam Deck OLED will benefit from better Wi-Fi connectivity (6E instead of 5), a more efficient battery (50Whr compared to 40Whr), and thermal improvements for a more comfortable gaming experience. Even with all these improvements, the new model will be 30g lighter.

Players will be able to order the OLED Steam Deck starting November 16, at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. GMT, or 7 p.m. Additionally, a limited edition of the 1TB model, with a transparent shell and red buttons, will also be available exclusively in the United States and Canada on the same date.

  • 256GB LCD = €419
  • 512GB OLED = €569
  • 1TB OLED = €679

Alongside these announcements, Valve reduced the price of the 64GB and 512GB LCD versions to clear stocks of these models.

Although the Steam Deck OLED is an improved version of the existing one, Valve has indicated that a true successor to the Steam Deck is not expected for several years.

The Steam Deck OLED promises to be a major breakthrough in the field of portable gaming consoles. With notable improvements in performance, display and connectivity, this new model is an enticing proposition for gamers looking for a premium mobile gaming experience.
