The Lite doesn't mean the OG is gone yet.
The Switch is getting a stealth upgrade in Japan next month.
Nintendo have announced a revision of the existing Switch hardware for release in Japan on August 29. Retailing for ¥29,800, the revised Switch will feature a minimum battery life of 4.5 hours in handheld mode with a potential maximum of 9 hours.

The new models will have a model number of HAC-001(-01) outside Japan and will have serial numbers beginning with HAK according to Nintendo of America.
Nintendo of America have also announced two new color sets for the Joy-Con controllers: blue/yellow and purple/orange pairs will be available October 4.
