The source quoted by WSJ are supplier and people who have ‘direct knowledge’ of the plans that Nintendo has.

The report states, “Nintendo is still debating what new hardware and software features to include in the upgrade and weighing the cost of the features, people with knowledge of the discussions said.” According to the publication’s sources, Nintendo will be incorporating a new and improved display in the new Nintendo Switch. The report talks about how the present variant of the Nintendo Switch has a display which is not at par with the present smartphone.

Implementing a new display ought to improve not just the quality of the display, but make the device thinner and save more battery at the same time.
