Nintendo NX has been in the news for quite some time, and mostly because of some rumors. Now a new report has surfaced on the internet from a Taiwan manufacturer, who claims to know exactly when Nintendo NX will go into production.

According to a Taiwan-based supply chain makers, Nintendo will start the trial production of Nintendo NX in the third quarter of 2016, and the full production will start in early fourth quarter of 2016.

Over 40% of initial production will be undertaken by Foxconn Electronics and the remaining by Japan-based Misumi Electronics and Hosiden, the sources said. Taiwan-based component makers will include chassis maker Foxconn Technology, NAND flash memory maker Macronix International, CMOS image sensor design house Pixart Imaging and power supply maker Delta Electronics

According to the source, Nintendo intended to start the production of the console in the second quarter of 2016. However, due to the continuous changes in the design the production was delayed to early 2017.

In related news, according to a recent report, the upcoming Nintendo NX will be a portable, handheld console with detachable controllers. Users will also be able to connect the console to their TV/monitors for big screen gameplay experience, thus making the console a hybrid.

The report also suggests that Nintendo NX will use cartridges as the choice of physical media. The game cartridges, however, will be able to hold 32GB of game data which is still not sufficient, especially when we consider the size of most modern games on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
