Let's Talk About how the 'Switch 2' could look like

The Switch is in the 2nd half of its life so how could its inevitable successor look like?
As per Nintendo's own word the Nintendo Switch, the home console/handheld hybrid system that launched back in 2017 and has been selling like hotcakes ever since, is now in the 2nd half of its lifespan. This means that roughly speaking, Nintendo expects to launch whatever ends up being its successor somewhere around 2024/2025. That's still a long way off but I can't help but wonder about the console. Especially now that the set of next-gen consoles, the PS5 and the Xbox Series X/S are nearing their 1st anniversary. I've got a few ideas about what direction the 'Switch 2' could go.
And yes, I do assume we will see another Switch. Consolidating their home console and handheld businesses has done well for the company. I mean, just look at its sales. It's almost a certainty by now that it will outsell the Nintendo Wii. Keeping this momentum going would be in their best interest.
Without further ado, let's dive in!
