Valve announced Thursday the upcoming release of a new OLED model of its Steam Deck handheld gaming device, along with price drops for the original LCD models. 

The Steam Deck OLED will feature a larger and more vibrant OLED display with HDR support, at 7.4 inches as opposed to the 7-inch LCD panel from the standard Steam Deck. Valve is also promising 30-50% longer battery life and speedier Wi-Fi 6E support in the mix. It’s also said to be lighter and cooler than the original device.

The new model will be available in 512GB and 1TB storage options priced at $549 and $649 respectively, compared to the original $399 base model. Various other “tweaks and improvements” are promised for the new models, which iterate upon the well-reviewed original PC gaming handheld.

In addition to the new OLED model, Valve is lowering prices for the existing LCD models, with the 64GB option now $349 (down from $399) and the 512GB LCD now $449 (was $529).

The Steam Deck OLED will launch on November 16 in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, European Union, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.
